Hi PSPP users,|
I can not really advise, but AFAIK there are some ways to cite a software. A possible option is a reference to a user's guide document. The link below points to an R-statistical forum, where it was originally proposed.
A more sophisticated solution can be found in R "Zelig" package's guide:
This document prescribes "how to cite Zelig package":
"To cite Zelig as a whole, please reference these two sources: Kosuke Imai, Gary King, and Olivia Lau. 2007. “Zelig: Everyone’s Statistical Software,” http://GKing.harvard.edu/zelig.
Imai, Kosuke, Gary King, and Olivia Lau. (2008). “Toward A Common Framework for Statistical Analysis and Development.” Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics, Vol. 17, No. 4 (December), pp. 892-913."
The first one reference is a homepage for the package, the second one is a publication (or could be conference poster as well).

Pfaff, J. Darrington et. al. GNU PSPP. http://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/I think that David mentioned in IRC that citations of webpages weren't really looked on well in his journal. Jason, I think that you have made some kind of conference presentation about PSPP, right? Maybe a poster or something like that? (Maybe I'm thinking of another one of my projects, I have too many of them.) Maybe a reference to something like that would be better for David's purpose.The citation for the poster is: J. Stover. GNU PSPP: A Free Clone of SPSS. Joint Statistical Meetings. Vancouver. 2010. I'm not sure about the format citations of poster presentations. I can supply more information if necessary. _______________________________________________ Pspp-users mailing list address@hidden https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/pspp-users
