The correct way to acknowledge use of Cloudy in publications is described on the Frequently Asked Questions about Cloudy
Acknowledgments for support of Cloudy
Cloudy would not exist today had it not been for the continuous support by the NSF since 1980, NASA since 1987, and STScI since 1997. Financial support through student fellowships and the generous allotment of time on the high-performance machines of the University of Kentucky Center for Computational Sciences are also gratefully acknowledged.
The project is currently supported by grants from NSF (AST 1816537 and AST 1910687 National Aeronautics and Space Administration 19-ATP19-0188) and Space Telescope Science Institute (HST-AR- 15018)
Acknowledgments for more recent versions
Discussions leading to improvements occur on the
It is usually not possible to identify the person making the suggestion. That forum should be studied for provenance.
Acknowledgments for help with C10
Thanks to Yago Ascasibar, Manuel Bautista, Valentina Luridiana, Orly Gnat, Linda Strubbe, and Matthias Steffen for help with this version.
Acknowledgments for help with C08
Thanks to Drew Clausen, Michel Fioc, Kirk Korista, Zhixing Ling, Valentina Luridiana, James Mullaney, Ania Raiter, Jane Rigby, and Jesús Toalá, for help with this version.
Acknowledgments for help with C07.02
Thanks to Manuel Bautista, Patrizia Manzitto, Jon Miller, and Linda Strubbe for help with this version.
Acknowledgments for help with C06.02
The chemistry is being developed by Nick Abel and Gargi Shaw, the grain physics by Peter van Hoof, Ryan Porter is doing the He-like iso-electronic sequence, and Will Henney & Robin Williams the dynamics.
Kevin Blagrave added the model of Fe III. Thanks to Pavel Abolmasov, Jack Baldwin, David Ballantyne, Kevin Blagrave, Carmen Sanchez Contreras, Swarna K Ghosh, Dick Henry, Karen Leighly, Valentina Luridiana, Peter G. Martin, Joseph Meiring, Christophe Morisset , Eric Pellegrini, Nemesio Rodriguez, R.Surendiranath, Yumihiko Tsuzuki, & Jennifer West for for help with this version.
Acknowledgements for help with C05.07
The chemistry is being developed by Nick Abel, Torsten Elwert, and Gargi Shaw, the grain physics by Peter van Hoof, Ryan Porter is doing the He-like iso-electronic sequence, and Will Henney & Robin Williams the dynamics.
Thanks to Kevin Blagrave, Yan Changshou, Susmita Chakravorty, John Everett, Sergio Fajardo-Acosta, Orly Gnat, Marcin Hajduk, Yoshiki Matsuoka, Bohdan Melekh, Xavier Prochaska, Ralf Quast, Carmen Sanchez Contrera, Ravi Sankrit, Klaus Werner, and Robert Wiersma for finding problems. Ravi Sankrit ran the test suite on his Mac. Peter van Hoof ran the test suite on a variety of machines.
Acknowledgements for help with C96
The grain physics in this version of the code was developed by Peter van Hoof. Robin Williams has led the development of the dynamics and hydrogen molecular network. Ryan Porter is doing the helium-like iso-electronic sequence and Nick Abel has expanded the CO network. Will Henney, Robin Williams, and Torsten Elwert are developing the dynamics. The hydrogen molecule is being developed with Gargi Shaw and Phllip Stancil. Kevin Volk added several new stellar atmosphere options.

Acknowledgements for help with C94
C94.01: Peter van Hoof has played a major role in developing new methods and uncovering bugs. Many people helped by finding problems, making suggestions, or simply asking questions about confusing points. These included David Ardila, Marcos Copetti, Kirk Korista, Jifeng Liu, Valentina Luridiana, Pat Romano, Mario Perinotto, Jon Slavin, Kevin Volk.
Beta2: Many thanks for Marcos Diaz, Oli Dors, Dalton de Faria Lopes, Peter van Hoof, Raquel Morales, Henrik Spoon, Lowell Tacconi-Garman, Peter R., Young.
Beta1: Many thanks to Roderick Johnstone, Kirk Korista, and Kevin Volk.
Acknowledgments for help with C90
Many people helped by finding problems, making suggestions, or conducting tests. These included: Dana Balser, Bob Blum, Mike Brotherton, Simon Casassus, Jane Charlton, Weihsueh Chiu, Mark Elowitz, Brian Espey, Mark Giroux, Mike Goad, Fred Hamann, Uffe Hellsten, Dick Henry, John Houck, George Jacoby, Roderick Johnstone, John Kartje, Jim Kingdon, Randolf Klein, Christian Knigge, Anton Koekemoer, Mike Kopko, Vincent Le Brun, Anthony Leonard, Rene Liseau, Valentina Luridiana, Bhaswati Mookerjea, Paul O'Brien, Tino Oliva, Enrique Perez, Sabine Philipp, Rafael Reyes, Dimitra Rigopoulou, Ravi Sankrit, Sandra Savaglio, Greg Schwarz, Eric Shulman, Mark Shure, Jon Slavin, Randall Smith, Stephanie Snedden, Henrik Spoon, Michele Thornley, Karen Vanlandingham, Peter van Hoof, Kevin Volk, James Wadsley, Jao Wei-Chun, and Bob Williams.
Version 90 of Cloudy was a team effort, involving Kirk Korista, Dima Verner, Jason Ferguson, Jim Kingdon, and Katya Verner. The bugs are mine, but this version would not have been possible without their help.
