I have a lab report where I have to show my results using PSpice simulation software. I take screenshots from my screen to illustrate my results and paste those images inside my report. Below a figure, should the label text be:

  1. Figure 1: Schematic using PSpice


  1. Figure 1: Schematic using pspice (without giving attention to the formatting used in the brand name)

What is the most appropriate way?


The approach I take is to look at (1) how the organization formats the name and (2) how other researchers write it. It doesn't make sense to make up your own formatting for it (unless maybe the formatting is just excessive).

Usually those two match, so in your case I would write it as PSpice.
