Citing fmriprep

Hi guys,

just a short question on citing fmriprep in paper:

Can I simply use the latex text from the citation.html file (or from the visual report) in my publication? This is not plagiarism in this case, is it?

Thank you very much!

Cheers,

Dima

This is an excellent question, thanks for raising the issue.

The boilerplate is generated for the purpose of being copied and pasted into papers. We will make sure it is clear that it goes with a CC0 license (probably very unclear as it stands now).

Hi @Dmitriy_Desser, we’ve added a section to the documentation that should hopefully clarify this. https://fmriprep.readthedocs.io/en/latest/citing.html#note-for-reviewers-and-editors

Future versions of fMRIPrep will output a note to researchers along with the boilerplate text.
