If you are using public GAMA data, you should include a brief
description of the GAMA survey with citations to the relevant survey papers.

GAMA is a joint European-Australasian project based around a spectroscopic campaign using the Anglo-Australian Telescope. The GAMA input catalogue is based on data taken from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey. Complementary imaging of the GAMA regions is being obtained by a number of independent survey programmes including GALEX MIS, VST KiDS, VISTA VIKING, WISE, Herschel-ATLAS, GMRT and ASKAP providing UV to radio coverage. GAMA is funded by the STFC (UK), the ARC (Australia), the AAO, and the participating institutions. The GAMA website is http://www.gama-survey.org/ .
If your paper makes use of GAMA data products based on VISTA VIKING data, please also include the following:
Based on observations made with ESO Telescopes at the La Silla Paranal Observatory under programme ID 179.A-2004.
If your paper makes use of GAMA data products based on VST KiDS data, please also include the following:
Based on observations made with ESO Telescopes at the La Silla Paranal Observatory under programme ID 177.A-3016.
