Fourth Paper Submitted: Lots of Blue Ellipticals!
The fourth Galaxy Zoo paper has now been submitted for peer review to the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The paper describes a sample of blue early-type galaxies (ellipticals) found by you guys and compares them to their much more common red counterparts. We’ll make the paper available for download as soon as possible. Since the paper contains some interesting results, we would like to wait until we get the first referee report before making the draft available to the community.
In the meantime, have a look at the footnote on page 1:
Now we have to wait for MNRAS to send the paper to a referee and await her/his report.
In other news, we’ve gotten back the referee report for the second paper (Lintott et al.), which has been very kind and we’re currently discussing the revised version. Hopefully that’ll mean that the second Galaxy Zoo paper will be accepted soon!
Great news Kevin. Can’t wait to see the paper !
I look forward to seeing it again – I hope your spacebar started behaving itself? 😉
Your report helps me to feel like I’m in the loop and a part of the “community.” Thanks so much.
Cool, thanks for the update!
Congratulations to the TEAM on their submission of another great paper and precious product of the ZOO !
Kevin, when you say “have a look at the footnote on page 1”, it’s barely visible. It seems to be something to click on to enlarge, but what comes up when you enlarge it is the list of authors – you, Chris, Phil, etc. I’m sure that what you want to come up is the footnote saying “this has been made possible because of . . .” and that link to all our names as well!
Ah, many thanks for correcting that link. 🙂
It works now? I tried to fix it, but it didn’t seem to work…
I can’t find this on arXiv/astro-ph; did you submit a preprint? If so, what’s the URL/arXiv code?
Hi Nereid, it might just not have been made available to download yet. They generally post an update on this blog and the site when we can see the whole thing. You can download the other three though!
I can’t wait to read it, Kevin. 😉
Great work, Kevin.
I picked up a few more for you here:
