In any type of citing issue, it is best to ask the editor/conference head. Another way to go about it is the guides. All journals/conferences have citing guides. You could follow them.

You can either: Include this as a footnote. Use this website https://www.bibme.org/bibtex/website-citation to generate website citations for the Bibtex generic citations. The following is I generated for the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2020. @misc{stack overflow, title={Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2020}, url={https://insights.stackoverflow.com/...

To add to the accepted answer, I believe you are looking for: writeLines(toBibtex(citation("package")), con = 'path_to/reference_filename') You can omit the package name for citing R. Hope it saves someone a few minutes.

I would cite this as a book section, including the DOI (because that's where you found it/how others will be able to find it) but not including "date accessed", because that is intended for more volatile resources like web pages. (If a reference has a DOI you can usually treat it as non-volatile.) Sticking as precisely as you can to a reference ...

A book is a written work distributed by a publisher, in physical or digital form. (Books and eBooks needn't be distinguished, they contain the same content.) Book drafts are distinguished, they are distributed by authors.

Citing in this case is unnecessary. An acknowledgement would be gracious, but also not strictly necessary. My personal inclination would be to do it if their explanation led to some insight on my part. But "Thanks to JDoe for their insights into Theorem 35 of Gauss", or whatever, is, as I say, gracious. It is even less necessary if the person's job ...

Neither alternative is good or bad. I would put the citation first if the author or the history is important: Darwin [On the Origin of Species, 1859] argued that natural selection ... but the citation last if you just want to tell your reader where they can look to check your facts: Darwin's finches continue to evolve [J. Wiener, The Beak of the Finch, ...

I see nothing wrong with putting the reference at the beginning, and in fact I see some situations where that placement would be necessary. Putting the reference at the beginning or the end makes no difference provided you agree with the statement you're citing. But if you disagree (or even if you're undecided), then putting the reference at the end doesn't ...

In the bibliography, you can cite a manual as a publication, e.g., Intel (2016) Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual: Instruction Set Reference, A-Z, Volume 2 (2A, 2B, 2C & 2D). In the main body, cite the relevant chapters, e.g., \cite[Chapter~3]{IntelManual}. Use the @manual tag in your BibTex file.

This depends on the level of abstraction. If you reference a more general claim (a synthesis of parts of the appendix), it might be better to reference the appendix as a whole. If you reference a very specific claim, you should reference the primary source (after double-checking its pertinence). An example hopefully makes this clear: Specific claim: In mid-...

What if the reference work is unavailable to your future readers? You should always cite the primary source if you have it.

Update #0: Case Study: Logistic Regression As an example, consider the origins of the logistic equation as a model for population growth. I came across "The origins of logistic regression" , Cramer 2002 on wikipedia in the context of machine learning. Cramer traces history back to the independent rediscovery of the equation by Pearl (Bio ...

You can cite websites and documents (even private ones) in the usual way. You should acknowledge the organiser for posing the question that your algorithm addresses (since it isn't a contribution of yours). The score is valuable when presented with the scoring metric (since readers can presumably only verify the score using the metric). That poses a problem,...

You can include an Acknowledgements section in which you thank the company for the data and the contest as appropriate. You can include, there, a link to the data, etc. It is probably unnecessary to even mention the scoring metric for purposes of citation. It is possible that the company wants it kept private if they haven't published it.
