We present pulsar timing solutions for 374 pulsars. Each ephemeris was obtained by analysing archival data stored at Jodrell Bank Observatory. This data archive contains over 5600 yr of pulsar rotational history with individual data-spans of up to 34 yr. A new method has been developed to mitigate the effects of timing noise by whitening the pulsar timing residuals. This whitening is applied before standard fitting procedures are followed to measure the astrometric and dispersion measure (DM… 
A Statistical Analysis of Radio Pulsar Timing Noise
We present an analysis of the timing observations on 27 radio pulsars, collected at Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO), with time spans ranging between ~ 9 and 14 yr. Our results
Tracking pulsar dispersion measures using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope
In this paper, we describe a novel experiment for the accurate estimation of pulsar dispersion measures (DMs) using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope. This experiment was carried out for a sample
We present results from timing observations of 27 pulsars made at the Pushchino Observatory over 33.5?yr between 1978 July and 2012 February. We also analyze archival Jet Propulsion Laboratory data
Dispersion measure variations and their effect on precision pulsar timing
We present an analysis of the variations seen in the dispersion measures (DMs) of 20-ms pulsars observed as part of the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array project.We carry out a statistically rigorous
An analysis of the timing irregularities for 366 pulsars
We provide an analysis of timing irregularities observed for 366 pulsars. Observations were obtained using the 76-m Lovell radio telescope at the Jodrell Bank Observatory over the past 36 years.
Detecting the errors in solar system ephemeris by pulsar timing
Pulsar timing uses planetary ephemerides to convert the measured pulse arrival time at an observatory to the arrival time at the Solar System barycenter (SSB). Since these planetary ephemerides
The Parkes Pulsar Timing Array Project
Abstract A ‘pulsar timing array’ (PTA), in which observations of a large sample of pulsars spread across the celestial sphere are combined, allows investigation of ‘global’ phenomena such as a
Arecibo timing and single‐pulse observations of 17 pulsars
We report on timing and single-pulse observations of 17 pulsars discovered at the Arecibo Observatory. The highlights of our sample are the recycled pulsars J1829+2456, J1944+0907 and the drifting
On the usefulness of existing solar wind models for pulsar timing corrections
Dispersive delays due to the solar wind introduce excess noise in high-precision pulsar timing experiments, and must be removed in order to achieve the accuracy needed to detect, e.g., low-frequency
High‐precision baseband timing of 15 millisecond pulsars
We describe extremely precise timing experiments performed on five solitary and 10 binary millisecond pulsars during the past 3 yr, with the Caltech Parkes Swinburne Recorder (CPSR2) coherent


Timing behavior of 96 radio pulsars
We present results from observations of 104 pulsars made between 1989 August and 1993 April, including timing solutions for 96 of them. Pulse profiles were recorded at four frequencies in the range
JPL pulsar timing observations. II - Geocentric arrival times
Monitoring of the behavior of naturally pulsating galactic radio sources, or pulsars, through regularly spaced measurements of pulse arrival times, has been conducted by several laboratories. A
Timing models for the long orbital period binary pulsar PSR B1259–63
The pulsar PSR B1259–63 is in a highly eccentric 3.4-yr orbit with the Be star SS 2883. Timing observations of this pulsar, made over a 7-yr period using the Parkes 64-m radio telescope, cover two
Timing Observations of Four Millisecond Pulsars with the Arecibo and Effelsberg Radio Telescopes
We present long-term timing observations of four millisecond radio pulsars with the 305 m Arecibo and the 100 m Effelsberg radiotelescopes. Our analysis of the combined pulse time-of-arrival data
Proper-Motion Measurements with the VLA. II. Observations of 28 Pulsars
Using the Very Large Array, we have measured the proper motions of 28 radio pulsars. On average, the pulsars studied are fainter and more distant than those studied in earlier work, reducing the
PSR1737–30 and period discontinuities in young pulsars
THE rotation rate of pulsars decreases as kinetic energy is lost by the emission of electromagnetic radiation and particles. This gradual spin-down is sometimes interrupted, however, by abrupt
The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey - III. Young Pulsars and the Discovery and Timing of 200 Pulsars
The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey has unlocked vast areas of the Galactic plane, which were previously invisible to earlier low-frequency and less-sensitive surveys. The survey has discovered more
Orbital variability of the psr j2051-0827 binary system
We have carried out high-precision timing measurements of the binary millisecond pulsar PSR J2051 0827 with the Eelsberg 100-m radio telescope of the Max-Planck-Institut fur Radioastronomie and with
Glitches in Southern Pulsars
Analysis of glitch parameters shows that most glitches have a fractional amplitude Delta nu(g)/nu of between 10(-8) and 10(-6), and there is no consistent relationship between glitch amplitude and the time since the previous glitch or the time to the following glitch, either for the ensemble or for individual pulsars.
