I am writing a paper on a study where I used NodeXL and I don´t how to cite it. Im confused about who are the authors or developers, and the role that SNAP, CodePlex and Social Media Research Foundation, play.
With other software I usually say "XX is a trade mark of YY". How do I cite NodeXL?
Thanks in advance..
