I am writing a paper that builds on a previous one, where another author was present. How should I quote the previous one? For example: "In a previous paper [1] we proposed ..." or "In a previous paper [1] we and a collaborator proposed ..."

What is the correct one both scientifically and linguistically?

  • 1
    "In paper [1] it was proposed that..."/"It was proposed in [1]..."
