The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has published several papers describing the data, the data acquisition process, and other technical details of the project. These publications can all be found listed on the SDSS publications page. The important ones are listed below also for convenience. The EDR paper, which came out after the first public SDSS data release, contains the most detailed description of the SDSS data.
