Croom, S. M. and Smith, R. J. and Boyle, B. J. and Shanks, T. and Loaring, N. S. and Miller, L. and Lewis, I. J. (2001) 'The 2dF QSO Redshift survey - V. : the 10k catalogue.', Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society., 322 (4). L29-L36.
We present a catalogue comprising over 10 000 QSOs covering an effective area of 289.6 deg2, based on spectroscopic observations with the 2-degree Field (2dF) instrument at the Anglo-Australian Telescope. This catalogue forms the first release of the 2dF QSO Redshift Survey. QSO candidates with 18.25<bJ<20.85 were obtained from a single homogeneous colour-selected catalogue based on APM measurements of UK Schmidt photographic material. The final catalogue will contain approximately 25 000 QSOs and will be released to the public at the end of 2002, one year after the observational phase is concluded.
