JWST Opportunities and Policies

Articles in this section comprise the traditional call for proposals. These articles include information on observing and science policies, and details on the proposal submission process (including checklists). Other sections, that are selectable from the left sidebar menu, provide information on the observatory and instrumentation, observation planning, and data calibration and analysis. Downloadable PDF collections are provided as a courtesy, made available and updated when feasible. The online documentation is the authority, and will be updated with the latest information.
