Galaxy Zoo Papers
« on: August 18, 2008, 09:34:47 pm »
In this thread I intend to keep a complete list of all papers arising from the Galaxy Zoo (GZ) project.

By 'papers', I mean those published in a relevant, peer-reviewed astronomy journal; this excellent blog entry by Kevin, on 28 March 2008, gives a summary of how scientific research goes from discovery to publication, and includes a link to a blog entry by Steven, dated 15 February 2008, on how a paper is actually written.

For each I intend to list its title, authors, and the ADS reference.

I will also include links to GZ Forum posts and blog entries directly relevant to each paper.

That list will be the second post in this thread; I intend to update it, by editing it, as more GZ papers are published.

Originally I had intended to include the abstract of each paper too; I now realise that this will be unwieldy, even for five papers, and much worse as the number of published papers grows.

The third post in this thread will comprise papers whose preprints are publicly available but which are not yet published; the content of the post will be the same (i.e. title, authors, ADS reference, links to GZ Forum posts and blog entries).  I intend to update it, by editing it, as papers become published, and as new preprints become available.

The fourth post will be less formal: a list of papers announced but not even a preprint yet available publicly.

In the fifth post I will briefly mention papers which reference, or cite, published GZ papers, unless they are already included in the second post.  These papers will, I expect, generally use results from GZ projects indirectly; how many there are and how quickly the list grows will be a measure of the impact of the GZ project in the astronomy community.

In preparing this thread, I came across several GZ Forum posts and blog entries which mention future papers in a general sense; I intend to collect these hints together in the sixth post.

As this thread is, of necessity, written within the framework of the internet forum software in which it resides, change control is weak.  The seventh post will attempt to keep track of major content changes to this post.

In a separate thread I would like to present the same sort of one-stop shopping set of posts for GZ projects that have been announced but for which there are not even hints that papers have been, or are being, written.

I hope zooites and guests will find this new thread useful and helpful. 

I welcome comments, suggestions, etc!  :)  But please, if I may, could I ask you to send them to me in a Private Message, or put them in a different thread?  I'd like to keep this thread as clean and short as possible.

{very much a WIP!  ;)}

zookeeperChris (10 Jan 2008): a post in the NEW! Galaxy Zoo Science Blog! thread "[...] and another exciting result which we'll be announcing on the blog later. I would be very surprised if we didn't publish ten Galaxy Zoo papers this year (that's a lot). [...]" (I need to check if the exciting result is already covered in this thread)

zookeeper_Kate (11 Jan 2008): a post in the NEW! Galaxy Zoo Science Blog! thread ([...] we still have lots of other cosmology (this strange excess thing was never part of our original cosmology motivation, see here for example). We can still look for an 'axis' about which galaxies rotate, as well as examine structure formation theories by looking at neighbour-neighbour correlations (as mentioned here). [...]" (I need to add the URLs, in the original, to the "here"s)

zookeeper_Kate (13 Jan 2008): a post in the NEW! Galaxy Zoo Science Blog! thread "Well - the papers aren't written yet! But as soon as they are then we will let you know (end of Jan we hope). [...]" (I need to check with zkKate that I've captured them all in this thread)

ZookeeperChris (20 Mar 2008): a post in the Chris Linnott’s talk at the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) (14/3/08) thread "[...] The latest is that one paper is done, and the other three of the first round are done. At least three others aren't far behind..." (I need to check with zkChris that I've captured them all in this thread)

Thanks to everyone who sent me PMs about this thread.

Based on the feedback, and some further ideas of my own, I'll be making I've made some changes later today; some points:

* content of this thread to be more clearly, and narrowly, defined: GZ papers published in relevant peer-reviewed journals; i.e. not all "publications" [DONE]

* link to ZookeeperKevin's excellent blog entry on peer review [DONE]

* new category: papers referencing GZ papers [DONE]

* clearer, more explicit instructions on how to access/obtain any of the published papers [DONE]

12 Sep 2008:

I've finished checking the GZ Forum for references to papers (content, status, authors, etc); next I'll be doing the same for the GZ Blog and the temporary forum.

The second paper has now been published, but I don't have a URL to the version that actually appears in MNRAS yet.

Things on my "To Do" list include:
* editing the OP to include the public commitment(s) to making all GZ papers available
* contacting the zookeepers to ask for feedback, comments, etc, esp re the items in the sixth post
* working out a better way to keep track of "papers which reference, or cite, published GZ papers" - I'm sure this will grow to be the biggest post before too long
* adding details of how the GZ data can be accessed, and the history of references to it - not, strictly speaking, papers, but a vital part of the GZ project
