LSST Data Policy

(Bob Blum) #1

LSST Operations is announcing the release of a public draft of the LSST Data Policy. It describes:

  • access to the data
  • ability to use the data
  • collaborating with others using the data
  • publishing science results that use LSST data

The draft policy is available at

This policy will be put under change control within LSST Operations. We expect to receive feedback on the policy from the LSST community. The feedback will be accumulated over time and used, along with guidance from AURA, SLAC, NSF, and DOE, to periodically update the policy as appropriate.

For those of you writing proposals for research funding, we will now update the LSST data management plan, and will let you know when a new version is released at its stable URL,
