NEON provides a variety of documents and communication resources to support researchers, educators and students in learning about the NEON program and using NEON data. The linked webpages below provide you with the files, guidelines, and information needed to include NEON photos, graphics, materials, and logos in your project.
Over 200 papers and other publications have been generated by the NEON community, and over 500 scientific designs, protocols, user guides, and other formal documents have been produced by NEON staff in partnership with external collaborators.
Papers and Publications
Researchers are building an important body of published work related to their use of NEON, including papers in high-impact journals such as PNAS, Bioscience, and Remote Sensing. Explore them all, and let us know if you have a publication we should share.
Protocols and Standardized Methods
NEON protocol and standardized methods documents reference information about NEON sites, science design, sensors, data collection, and processing methods.
Data Product User Guides
Each of our observational sampling data products has a user guide, which provides concise information about our protocols and information on how to work with the data. Quick start guides are also available with each data product and can be found on each data product detail page as well as in your downloaded data package.

NEON has a variety of outreach materials, including postcards, maps, posters, and more. Check them out here.
The NEON logo is available for you to download and use.
The NSF NEON logo (i.e., the NSF-NEON ‘lockup’ style logo) can be used by anyone using the NSF-supported NEON data, samples, or other infrastructure in their research, education, or product development for the sole purpose of acknowledging that support. Any alteration of this logo is expressly not allowed by the NSF. Where possible, we would appreciate a hyperlink from the logo to the neonscience.org website, especially from partner pages or materials.
Use of the NSF NEON logo is expressly prohibited from use to imply endorsement of a commercial product or service. The NSF NEON logo cannot be used in a manner that falsely implies employment by or affiliation with the NSF. Additional guidance is provided on the NSF website.
