tl;dr: tell us how to cite your yt-using papers at
For the last few years, we've been working on a paper about yt-4.0,
and the updates since the last paper was published over a decade ago.
I've dragged my feet on it a little bit, but I'm hoping that over the
next few months the last bits can be written up, polished, and the
paper submitted. (See the end of this email for authorship
information on the paper!) The current "build" of the paper is here:
with a repository at github.com/yt-project/yt-4.0-paper/ .
The paper isn't *yet* complete... which is where this email comes in!
I've been trying to collect a somewhat representative set of
references to the papers that describe or utilize yt for different
simulation platforms. There are two types of citations that we're
trying to track down -- citations that describe the simulation
platform (i.e., the "method paper" that talks about the code) and
those that use yt to analyze data output by the simulation platform
(i.e., maybe you wrote a paper and used yt). To make this easy, I've
made up a google form:
If you are able to take a minute and submit a couple references to
your work or work you know about that used yt, it would be very, very
And as for the paper itself, we're preparing an email inviting
authorship to anyone who has had changes committed into the yt
repository, but the authorship policy for the paper is by design very
inclusive and described here:
https://github.com/yt-project/yt-4.0-paper#authorship-policy . If you
have contributed, you are likely going to receive this email, but if
you are certain you would like to be included, please follow the
instructions in that link to see how to be added to the manuscript.
Thanks very much,
