~28 institutions are added from http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201322068

the logo should have a clear copyright statement associated, 
Wikipedia is very picky, understandably
As the logo of an organization, they want a Fair Use description, "To 
the uploader: Please add a detailed 
use rationale for each use, as well as the source of the work and 
copyright information. "

If others made occasional edits, the entry should be safe from the 
deletion fanatics.
