Automating Software Citation using GitCite

Leshang Chen, Susan Davidson

The ability to cite software and give credit to its authors is increasingly important. This paper presents a model for software citation with version control, and an implementation that integrates with Git and GitHub. The implementation includes a browser extension and a local executable tool, which enable citations to be added/modified/deleted to software project repositories and managed through functions such as fork/merge/copy.
