Articles in this section, “JWST Observation Planning,” provide content found in traditional instrument handbooks, such as information on proposal tools, cookbooks, and observing strategies.

Other sections, that are selectable from the menu are JWST Observatory and InstrumentationJWST Opportunities and Policies, and JWST Data Calibration and Analysis.

While downloadable PDF files for this and the other sections will be generated for each cycle, the online content will be constantly updated with the latest information.
