Any papers using observational material taken with NRAO instruments (Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array or otherwise) or papers where a significant portion of the work was done at NRAO, should include the following acknowledgement to NRAO and NSF:

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.

When referring to the VLA in a publication for the first time, please use the full name Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA).  In subsequent references in that same publication, it is OK to use the shorthand VLA.
