    How to cite PHYLIP

    10th January 2014

    Official PHYLIP FAQ does suggest a few ways to cite the software, but I believe that the best citation is mentioned in the wikipedia PHYLIP article: pubmed reference for PMID 7288891. This PubMed citations seems the best, because

    • it does mention the software tool implementing the maximum likelihood approach,
    • it is likely the earliest mention of the PHYLIP software (which was distributed since around 1980),
    • it refers to a journal indexed by pubmed, and
    • according to Google Scholar, it was already cited over 6660 times :)
