Software and Services Citation Guidelines and Examples

Feb 2019

The Software and Services Citation Guidelines and Examples provide guidance on how to cite software and services for authors of journal articles. Journal publishers can also provide the Guidelines as a reference to their authors on how to cite software and services. The Guidelines were developed by the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Software and Services Citation Cluster and endorsed by the ESIP Assembly in January 2019. The Guidelines are periodically reviewed to ensure they remain functional and relevant.
