Data policy and publications:

Datasets are available without restrictions, but the authors should refer to the following papers if the Debrecen data are used in any publications:

Győri, L., Ludmány, A., Baranyi, T., Comparative analysis of Debrecen sunspot catalogues, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 465 (2), 1259-1273, 2017, DOI: 10.1093/mnras/stw2667 arXiv Final - Version of Record,
If the Debrecen tilt angle data are used in any publications, please also refer to this paper:
Baranyi, T.: 2015, Comparison of Debrecen and Mount Wilson/Kodaikanal sunspot group tilt angles and the Joy's law, MNRAS, 447, (4): 1857-1865, doi:10.1093/mnras/stu2572 , PDF preprint

If magnetograms or full-disk scans are used, the original source of files should be indicated.
We would be especially grateful if the authors sent a short message with the bibliographic details of their paper when DPD is referred to.
