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,”
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).

What is the preferred way to cite the use of PSPP in scientific articles?
It looks like no one has responded, so here is my best attempt:

There is no standard way to cite PSPP that I know of, but PSPP is part
of the GNU project, so you could give a reference like

B. Pfaff, J. Darrington et. al. GNU 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.
