Enhanced support for citations on GitHub
Making it easier for others to cite your work
« GitHub now has built-in support for
CITATION.cff files. This new feature enables academics and researchers to let people know how to correctly cite their work, especially in academic publications/materials. Originally proposed by the research software engineering community,
CITATION.cff files are plain text files with human- and machine-readable citation information. When we detect a
CITATION.cff file in a repository, we use this information to create convenient APA or BibTeX style citation links that can be referenced by others.
