The Sloan Digital Sky Survey as an archetypal mid-scale program
MetadataShow full item record
We describe the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) as an archetypal mid-scale program, including the technical, scientific, and organizational aspects underpinning its success over the last twenty years. Based on the SDSS experience, we present six recommendations that the funding mechanisms for mid-scale programs should be designed to ensure the adoption of these recommendations.
