Citing a Diskmag

category: general [glöplog]
Yeah...should I just follow suit of a normal magazine on this one? It's for a paper for uni and I wanted to cite an article I wrote on diffusion-limited aggregation.

if nonscientific magazines are considered gray literature... diskmags must be brown!
then again, all the nazi propaganda must improve Hugi's IF :)
Ferris: the article probably has an author which can be cited the normal way - "Article by XYZ, first published in QWE, 03.03.2009" etc.

Maybe handle it somewhere between a magazine and a website, as you're presumably going to need a download URL in there.

Gloom: "probably" has an author? Ferris wrote it himself :D

Btw, how do you do the author name in the citation? Scene handle, real name or both?

I really wish I had done my masters in something more demoscene related. Although I learned a lot of applicable maths doing robotics, I couldn't really tweak it as far as DLA. Ferris, please post a link to whatever you're writing here?

"I wanted to cite an article I wrote"
you don't have to cite stuff you wrote yourself, do you?
you can reference for further reading, but i don't think it's needed.
I think you have to (or want to) cite your own work. I've seen it done all the time (in our previous work [25] etc ). I guess you can choose either the electronic source type or the miscellanuous type (MS-Word citation formats, never used tex or similar) but since it wasn't peer reviewed I wouldn't base a lot of things on that.
In an unrelated note.. My Msc thesis was also in DLA...

Cite it like an ordinary magazine and include a download URL.

or just put it as html somewhere on your website and use webcite. that's probably the cleanest way of doing it :)
