Notes

Common software and apps that are mentioned in your text, but not paraphrased or quoted, do not need citations. Simply give the name and version number in text, e.g. "navigation was enabled by Google maps", "data was entered into Excel (2010)".

If an individual or group has proprietary rights to a program, use their name as the author, but otherwise create the reference as if it had no author. For more information see the Authors button below.

If the software is available online include the URL.

'n.d.' is used to show no known date of publication.
