During your study, if using data from individual radars only, please contact the Principal Investigator (PI) of that radar about potential co-authorship. A list of radars, institutions, and their PI's information can be found here.
For SuperDARN Canada managed radars (Saskatoon, Rankin Inlet, Inuvik, Clyde River, and Prince George), contact Dr. Kathryn McWilliams of the University of Saskatchewan.
