Use of PyCBC in Scientific PublicationsΒΆ

If you use any code from PyCBC in a scientific publication, then we ask that it is cited in the following way:

These results were generating using the PyCBC software package
\cite{Canton:2014ena,Usman:2015kfa,Nitz:2017svb,pycbc-software}

For the citation pycbc-software, please use a bibtex entry and DOI for the appropriate release of the PyCBC software (or the latest available release). A bibtex key and DOI for each release is avaliable from Zenodo. A key for the latest release is available at:
