I'm writing some report, and at a certain point I give an example by citation. The citation format is such that you don't see any names (e.g. "") without visiting the bibliography; or maybe it's just initials. And I wasn't the only author. I would like to "warn" my readers to take the citation with a grain of salt, as I am relying on what is at least partly, if not mostly, my own perspective or my own arguments elsewhere. At the same time, I don't want it to sound like I'm boasting about being an author; nor that I'm making a stronger pitch of the cited paper; nor that I'm disparaging it somehow.
What's a good way to phrase this limite-caveat/weak-warning?
- I'm currently writing alone, am not using the first-person voice at all, and have just a handful third-person "it is the author's opinion that" and similar expressions.
- I can't presume to individually take the credit for the work in  which was a group effort.
