Is there a preferred method of citing Mathematica or WL in a scholarly publication?
Since at least 13.2, there is a "cite this as" click-to-copy at the bottom of each documentation page. I think that may be the best way to do this if you are using specific functions.
For WL without the FrontEnd, I think you have met your moral obligation by using Danny's link to Mathematica, or perhaps Wolfram Engine Link or Wolfram Language
Thanks Craig. I opened with a cite of Wolfram Mathematica, but I think my story would flow a bit better with a specific site to WL as well, analogous to how I cite e.g. NDSolve. Otherwise I'm leaving the representation of the math kind of commingled with Mathematica the tool rather than WL the language. Splitting hairs I know!
I'd like to bump this back up: How to cite WL specifically? The link by Daniel shows the prefered form for several Wolfram products, but not the WL itself.
I would (and do) cite just as Craig suggests.
Craig, if you will happen to do this - please come and share about that publication on Wolfram Community.
