(1) Papers containing data from the Gemini telescopes (e.g. an ApJ paper) should include the following general acknowledgment as a footnote on the first page or in the last section before the references:

Based on observations obtained at the Gemini Observatory, which is operated by the
Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under a cooperative agreement
with the NSF on behalf of the Gemini partnership: the National Science Foundation (United
States), the Science and Technology Facilities Council (United Kingdom), the
National Research Council (Canada), CONICYT (Chile), the Australian Research Council

and, if appropriate, please also acknowledge the provision of visiting instrument(s) as described in the relevant "documents" web pages for that instrument.

Authors are also asked to give the identification number ("Program ID") of the program(s) under which their data were obtained, e.g. GN-2004A-Q-10, or GS-2003B-C-1, or GN-2002B-SV-78 or GS-2005A-DD-96. We recommend that this reference to the Program ID be made in the acknowledgement section at the end of the paper or in the Observations section of the paper.

The "documents" sections also list reference(s) that should be cited to describe facility and visiting instruments.

(2) Papers published about Gemini (for example, SPIE papers on an instrument) should have the following acknowledgement as a footnote on the first page or in the last section before the references:

The Gemini Observatory is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in 
Astronomy, Inc., under a cooperative agreement with the NSF on behalf of the Gemini partnership:

(3) Papers authored or co-authored by Gemini staff not using Gemini data should acknowledge funding from the agencies by using the following statement in the acknowledgement section at the end of their paper:
