LOFAR Papers

An overview of LOFAR publications for the period of 2011 - Dec 2020.

 

 

New entries for this list, which is updated roughly four times per year, are obtained by querying the NASA ADS database for refereed publications which contain some form of the standard acknowledgement text and/or have LOFAR in the title. False positives are then removed manually, based on the criterion that a publication may only appear on this list if it uses data obtained with (part of) LOFAR.

The full list of LOFAR publications can also be browsed in this ADS query.
