Credit

If you use pulsar_spectra for your research please give credit by citing Swainston et al 2022, PASA, 39, e056 and the publications of the data used in your spectral fits.

Until there is a more appropriate method for crediting software development and maintainance, please also consider including me as a co-author on publications which rely on pulsar_spectra.

Catalogue data

The catalogue comprises YAML files containing pulsar flux density measurements for each paper the repository has included. You should not assume that this repository has all flux density measurements for a pulsar you are interested in. Instead, you should search through the literature to find all papers that contain flux density measurements of the pulsar and confirm all of those papers are in the catalogue. You can find a list of the papers in the catalogue here
