= How do I make bibliographic citations of a SPSS or R procedure? =
The below is taken directly from the SPSS website [[http://www.spss.com/corpinfo/faqs.htm#book|here.]]
For most of our products, you can get the complete product name, version or release number and date of creation from the "About . . ." dialog box that appears under the "Help" menu. For example, if you have SPSS for Windows, you might see this:
SPSS for Windows
Release 11.0.1 (15 Nov 2001)
You can then write a bibliographic citation as follows:
SPSS for Windows, Rel. 11.0.1. 2001. Chicago: SPSS Inc.
If you are referencing material from the SPSS Web site, please refer to the terms and conditions [[http://www.spss.com/terms.htm|here.]]
