HSCLA is led by the Subaru Telescope, which is operated by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ). The data processing has been supported by Astronomical Data Center (ADC) at NAOJ. If you use the HSCLA data in your publication, please quote the following text:

This paper is based [in part] on data from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Legacy Archive (HSCLA), which is operated by the Subaru Telescope. The original data in HSCLA was collected at the Subaru Telescope and retrieved from the HSC data archive system, which is operated by the Subaru Telescope and Astronomy Data Center at National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. The Subaru Telescope is honored and grateful for the opportunity of observing the Universe from Maunakea, which has the cultural, historical and natural significance in Hawaii.
