st: Suggestion - Citing references from Stata Journal

Subject   st: Suggestion - Citing references from Stata Journal

Sorry, but it was not my objective to be hostile.

FREE and FULL access were used to be emphatic.

I am nobody to shout to people.

My objective is to give my perspective that authors of Stata packages
should get credits with their hard work. Stata Journal will also gain with
that.

Cheers!

I do not understand the hostility here, nor do I understand the need to
SHOUT.

Anyhow, a solution was already proposed: the listings on the SSC
archive. This includes (usually within days) references to all
articles appearing in the Stata Journal. A complete list of articles
can be found here: <http://ideas.repec.org/s/tsj/stataj.html>.

Say you want to download John Gallup's article in the latest Stata
Journal, than you look it up on the site given above, follow the link
(in this case <http://ideas.repec.org/a/tsj/stataj/v12y2012i1p3-28.html>)
and look for the heading "Bibliographic Info". There you will find
"Download reference", which will allow you to download a citation in
various formats, including the formats you asked for.

There is absolutely no point in adding manually references from the Stata
Journal to reference manager softwares. I won't do it. People won't do it.
I won't pay a lot of money for Web of Science to cite Stata Journal
either.

If one does not have FREE and FULL access to each reference from that
journal, so that one can quickly import them to reference manager programs
(ENDNOTE, REFERENCE MANAGER, etc.), user-written packages won't get cited.
Period.


The Stata Journal loses. Authors of Stata packages lose. Everything is
summarized in "All statistical analyses were conducted using Stata
(version X, Stata Corp, College Station, Texas, USA)."

Pity.
