Hi, how should I cite the Lazarus IDE and the Free Pascal compiler in an academic work?

How about:

Free Pascal Lazarus Project, 2015. Free Pascal Rapid Application Development Integrated Development Environment Version 1.4.4. www.lazarus-ide.org.

All users - and that is a huge part - of this forum with an academic degree will tell you, you should already know. Because you are supposed to have learned that. Oh, anyway, just google on it.. >:D

It is not straight forward at all. I am an academic who writes scientific software, as well as papers on algorithms. Users of my software are required to cite it, or one of my papers.

This site raises a few of the questions:

I'll try to cite you in my next paper Bart! :)

Promoting Free Pascal / Lazarus by academic citation is an excellent way to promote visibility among the scientific and academic communities.

A standard citation agreed on by the developers could help.

Cheers,

R, a free implementation of the S language for statistical computing delivers the following output if you enter citation():

Quote
To cite R in publications use:

  R Development Core Team (2009). R: A language and environment for statistical
  computing. R Foundation for Statistical Computing, Vienna, Austria. ISBN
  3-900051-07-0, URL http://www.R-project.org.

A BibTeX entry for LaTeX users is

  @Manual{,
    title = {R: A Language and Environment for Statistical Computing},
    author = {{R Development Core Team}},
    organization = {R Foundation for Statistical Computing},
    address = {Vienna, Austria},
    year = {2009},
    note = {{ISBN} 3-900051-07-0},
    url = {http://www.R-project.org},
  }

We have invested a lot of time and effort in creating R, please cite it when
using it for data analysis. See also ‘citation("pkgname")’ for citing R
packages.

This could be translated to Free Pascal and Lazarus as:

  }

As far as I know the Lazarus foundation is still in the phase of planning. Therefore, I have omitted the corresponding field.

In addition, it should be possible to cite the official Free Pascal manuals available form http://www.freepascal.org/docs.var and the publications from http://wiki.freepascal.org/Pascal_and_Lazarus_Books_and_Magazines.

It was once proposed by Michael van Canneyt, and the wiki contains a draft for a foundation charter.

Unfortunately, I am unable to deliver more information, since I am not a member of the core group. I think, however, that a Lazarus (and/or FPC) foundation would be a great achievement.

Hi all,

Please make me know if the following would be fine for the devs, I am using the APA (v6) style:

Today, I have submitted Lazarus and Free Pascal at SciCrunch.

SciCrunch is a "cooperative and collaborative data and resource discovery platform for scientific communities" and a key tool of the Resource Identification Initiative. If the submission gets accepted it will be sufficient to cite the respective RRID handles in manuscripts.

I will post updates here.

  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.

Lazarus and Free Pascal have been curated by SciCrunch.

From now on, it is possible to cite them as

Lazarus IDE, RRID:SCR_014362 and Free Pascal Compiler, RRID:SCR_014360.

Where required, it is also possible to link to the RRID entries http://scicrunch.org/browse/resources/SCR_014362 and http://scicrunch.org/browse/resources/SCR_014360, respectively.

See the Wikpiedia article on SciCrunch for more details and background information.
