How to cite signac

Preferred Citation

Please acknowledge the use of this software within the body of your publication by copying or adapting the following:

The computational workflow in general and data management in particular for this publication was primarily supported by the signac data management framework[1].

[1] Carl S. Adorf, Paul M. Dodd, Vyas Ramasubramani, and Sharon C. Glotzer. Simple data and workflow management with the signac framework. Computational Materials Science, 146(C):220-229, 2018. DOI:10.1016/j.commatsci.2018.01.035.

If you make use of signac-flow, we also strongly recommend citing the following publication:

[2] Vyas Ramasubramani, Carl S. Adorf, Paul M. Dodd, Bradley D. Dice, and Sharon C. Glotzer. signac: A Python framework for data and workflow management. Proceedings of the 17th Python in Science Conference, 152-159, 2018. DOI:10.25080/Majora-4af1f417-016

If possible, we also recommend including a citation of the associated Zenodo resource:
