The Astronomy Acknowledgment Generator

Baffled on how to properly acknowledge a code/software, web-service, database, or facility/observatory? And more important how to find the proper citations?

A tool of rescue is the Acknowledgment Generator [1] which makes (too) easy to create these necessary sentences for the acknowledgment section, along with the appropriate citations, by simply ticking the boxes you are interested in!

Many thanks to the contributors!

PS … and how can we thank this tool ?
