Citation of GNUradio codes

Hello,

I have used the benchmark_tx and benchmark_rx codes for one of my
projects
and I am submitting a conference paper based on that work. I want to
cite
these codes or at least the GNU radio website for this purpose. Is there
a
specific format that I should follow? Or can I just use IEEE’s standard
webpage citation format?

I apologize in advance if a similar question has already been asked
here. I
searched for similar questions in the mailing list but could not find
one.

Suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Nazmul

Hi Nazmul,

I’ve seen most people just cite “GNU Radio. http://gnuradio.org” …
ultimately benchmark_tx and benchmark_rx use large parts of the entire
GNU
Radio project.

Hi Nazmul - If you use the GNU Radio GIT master and update it regularly,
I think that

GNU Radio Website, accessed February 2012. [Online]. Available:
http://www.gnuradio.org

is complete enough, since it refers to both the project in general as
well as the code. If you use a specific version (e.g., of the GIT
master or a release such as 3.5.1), you’d probably want to state that
just to make it clear. The (La)TeX markup that I use for the above is:

@misc{url:gnu-radio,
author = “{GNU Radio Website}”,
year = “{accessed February 2012}”,
url = {http://www.gnuradio.org}
}

The important parts for any URL-based citation such as this are: (0) The
project name, with any distinguishing characteristics needed to make it
unique (such as the version number or extended name if there are more
than 1 projects using a similar name); (1) when you last accessed the
URL, since websites do change and sometimes you won’t have accessed it
for a while before you submitted the paper; and (2) a valid URL as of
the month of last access (for example, the above URL works with or
without the trailing ‘/’, while others require it). That said, before I
submit such a paper I always work through the URLs and update their
info, verifying each one to make sure it is still valid & if not then
figuring out the correct URL.

Hope this helps! - MLD

Thanks a lot, George & Michael. I really appreciate your suggestions.

I think this is a great question, and I’ll post Michael’s answer to the
FAQ.
