How to Cite IRIS in Your Publications

To cite IRIS Data Services:

The facilities of IRIS Data Services, and specifically the IRIS Data Management Center, were used for access to waveforms, related metadata, and/or derived products used in this study. IRIS Data Services are funded through the Seismological Facilities for the Advancement of Geoscience (SAGE) Award of the National Science Foundation under Cooperative Support Agreement EAR-1851048.

 

To cite data obtained from IRIS Data Services:

In 2014, the International Federation of Digital Seismic Networks (FDSN) recommended that all seismic networks with a FDSN network code have a DOI. To cite data from a network with a DOI, refer to the data as you would to a normal scientific manuscript in the main body of the manuscript, or in the Acknowledgements. Then include the reference in the standard list of references or, if the list is long, in a special section for data sources. 

A tool for discovering the FDSN network references is provided here.

Example citation in an Acknowledgement:

All seismic data were downloaded through the IRIS Wilber 3 system (https://ds.iris.edu/wilber3/) or IRIS Web Services (https://service.iris.edu/), including the following seismic networks: (1) the AZ (ANZA; UC San Diego, 1982); (2) the TA (Transportable Array; IRIS, 2003); (3) the US (USNSN, Albuquerque, 1990); (4) the IU (GSN; Albuquerque, 1988).
