Abstract
Context. Solar-like oscillations have been observed by Kepler and CoRoT in several solar-type stars, thereby providing a way to probe the stars using asteroseismology
Aims. We provide the mode frequencies required for performing comparison with those obtained from stellar modelling.
Methods. Time series of 9 months of data have been used. The power spectra of 61 main-sequence and subgiant stars have been analysed using both Maximum Likelihood Estimators and Bayesian estimators, providing individual mode characteristics such as frequencies, linewidths, and mode heights.We derived and describe a methodology for extracting a single set of mode frequencies from multiple sets derived by different methods and individuals. We report on how one can assess the quality of the fitted parameters using the likelihood ratio test and the posterior probabilities.
Results. Here we give the mode frequencies of 61 stars (with their 1-σ error bars), as well as their associated échelle diagrams.

Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences

Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences (IA) is a new but long anticipated research infrastructure with a national dimension. It embodies a bold but feasible vision for the development of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Sciences in Portugal, taking full advantage and fully realizing the potential created by the national membership of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO). IA resulted from the merging the two most prominent research units in the field in Portugal: the Centre for Astrophysics of the University of Porto (CAUP) and the Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics of the University of Lisbon (CAAUL). It currently hosts more than two-thirds of all active researchers working in Space Sciences in Portugal, and is responsible for an even greater fraction of the national productivity in international ISI journals in the area of Space Sciences. This is the scientific area with the highest relative impact factor (1.65 times above the international average) and the field with the highest average number of citations per article for Portugal.
