How to cite NEURON

Post by ted »

Please be sure to cite NEURON if your work results in publications.
Of the sources currently listed on the "Publications about NEURON" page, you might want to choose

Carnevale, N.T. and Hines, M.L. The NEURON Book.
Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2006.

which makes it easy for us to find your paper.

Of course, if your work relied especially on a particular feature that is described
in one or more of the other articles on that page, we wouldn't mind if you mention
those too!

Also--and this is just as important!--please tell us about your publications
so we can include them in the Bibliography page ... ednrn.html

Hi there,
Noticed that "" is a Page Not Found...
should point to->
Also, unless you have a way to automate this or "Crowd source it" this may be a fantastical idea, but I wondered if you have considered including direct hyperlinks to the publications in this list of pubs that use NEURON. The only reason I mention this is that, in this land of metrics and Altmetrics papers that receive cite from other websites get an "impact" uplift sometimes. It is only a very small effect per link, but if theses were clickable link - each NEURON citing paper would have a slightly higher profile and in turn that ought to feedback to increasing further the profile of NEURON itself?
Just a thought, but as I say, unless there was a way to allow users to do it... it would be a massive and unjustified waste of time.
Kindest Regards
