We present ~47,000 periodic variables found during the analysis of 5.4 million variable star candidates within a 20,000 deg^2 region covered by the Catalina Surveys Data Release-1 (CSDR1). Combining these variables with type ab RR Lyrae from our previous work, we produce an online catalog containing periods, amplitudes, and classifications for ~61,000 periodic variables. By cross-matching these variables with those from prior surveys, we find that >90% of the ~8000 known periodic variables in… 
The Catalina Surveys Southern periodic variable star catalogue
Here, we present the results from our analysis of 6 yr of optical photometry taken by the Siding Spring Survey (SSS). This completes a search for periodic variable stars within the 30 000 deg^2 of
The Zwicky Transient Facility Catalog of Periodic Variable Stars
The number of known periodic variables has grown rapidly in recent years. Thanks to its large field of view and faint limiting magnitude, the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) offers a unique
Investigation of Long-Period Variables in the Catalina Southern Catalog: New Carbon Stars and False Objects
As part of our ongoing study of the evolved giants in the galactic halo, we consider the sample of 1286 long-period variables (LPVs) in the southern hemisphere provided by the Catalina Sky Survey
Investigations of the Periodic Variables in the Catalina and Linear Databases
In this study we continue spectral class determinations for large numbers of optically faint periodic variables taken from the Catalina Surveys Data Release 1 (CSDR1) and LINEAR data sets. Spectral
New Carbon Stars in the Catalina Catalog of Periodic Variables
This study is about carbon stars detected in a program of spectral type determinations for a large amount of optically faint periodic variables. These variables are taken from the Catalina Survey
A Catalog of RV Variable Star Candidates from LAMOST
RV variable stars are important in astrophysics. The Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) spectroscopic survey has provided ~ 6.5 million stellar spectra in its Data
A catalogue of over 10 million variable source candidates in ZTF Data Release 1
Variable sources probe a wide range of astrophysical phenomena. We present a catalog of over ten million variable source candidates found in Data Release 1 (DR1) of the Zwicky Transient Facility
Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer ( WISE ) Catalog of Periodic Variable Stars
We have compiled the first all-sky mid-infrared variable-star catalog based on Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) five-year survey data. Requiring more than 100 detections for a given object,
The ASAS-SN catalogue of variable stars – IV. Periodic variables in the APOGEE survey
We explore the synergy between photometric and spectroscopic surveys by searching for periodic variable stars among the targets observed by the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution
Recovering variable stars in large surveys: EAup Algol-type class in the Catalina Survey
The discovery and characterization of Algol eclipsing binaries (EAs) provide an opportunity to contribute for a better picture of the structure and evolution of low-mass stars. However, the cadence
