I am writing a scientific article. In the "materials and methods" section I must specify the hardware I used, namely an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC (I also specified the details of its features).
Now my doubt:
Should I use bibliographic citations (such as when mentioning a software, book, or scientific article) when I mention the hardware?
What is standard (if any) for such cases?
Thanks in advance for any help and/or suggestion.
P.S. I use APA standards for bibliographic references, although the question is independent of that subject.
