You can certainly reference the website, but if you want to refer to a
published paper, I suggest

Matplotlib: A 2D Graphics Environment
Source: Computing in Science and Engineering archive
Volume 9 , Issue 3 (May 2007)
Pages: 90-95
Year of Publication: 2007

and/or the conference abstract at

Correction, the source should read:

  Source: Computing in Science and Engineering

there was an extra word "archive" in my OP

Could this be put up on the website somewhere in a easily-found place? Maybe a short sentence and link in the bar on the right under "Other stuff"? Something like "To cite matplotlib in a paper, use <a href='link to wiki page with that citation, preferably in several formats like bibtex'> this reference</a>." or something.

Thanks,

Jason

This would help by providing a consistent way of citing matplotlib. Without this, different authors may reference matplotlib different ways, thereby diluting the impact of the above reference. Plus, it always annoyed me to try and figure out how to cite things like matplotlib or various data sources.

Well, I had my bib program open, so here are a couple formats:

matplotlib.xml (1.51 KB)

matplotlib.ris (485 Bytes)

matplotlib.bib (930 Bytes)

Thanks for posting these. I added this to the FAQ:
