Citing a SAS Global Forum Paper

As a student of others more masterful in SAS than I am, I am frequently reading and incorporating techniques in data management or analysis that I come across in SAS Global Forum Papers. (It's great that these pop up with a good Google query!) While some of this is learning to use general SAS techniques and the stock PROCs, at other times it is full use of macros developed and shared by those authors. 

 

Do others cite (in proposals, methods sections, etc) these resources? If so, how? Bonus if EndNote tips.

 

Thanks all,

My citations are limited to SAS Global Forum papers that I write.  If you need to know the format of the citation, this is what I use:

 

DelGobbo, Vincent. 2016. "New for SAS® 9.4: A Technique for Including Text and Graphics in Your Microsoft Excel Workbooks, Part 1". Proceedings of the SAS Global Forum 2016 Conference. Cary, NC: SAS Institute Inc.

Hi @AaronTram. Great question. Yes, I do cite whatever I reference - some examples you can see in my MWSUG paper.

 

If I use someone else's macro, or write something inspired by what they do, I also include a link to their paper/website in my code. Typically in the comments, and perhaps in the header information.

Two more thoughts: you can enter conference / regional user group papers just like any other conference citation in EndNote.

 

Yes, Google is great at finding these papers. You can also use LexJansen.com. Lex works for SAS, and the search bar on his site uses Google's engine to search just the contents of every SAS conference paper.
