How to Cite SIAM Electronic Articles

How to Cite SIAM Electronic Articles

With articles in SIAM's research journals published electronically on an accelerated basis (excluding SIAM Review and Theory of Probability and Its Applications), there can be questions about how to cite the electronic articles. This is because papers in electronic issues may be published near the end of a year and the print version mailed early the following year. And prior to 2011, papers in the same issue were sometimes electronically published across two years.

When citing SIAM articles, note that SIAM considers the electronic editions to be the definitive editions for its journals. Mathematical Reviews, the Institute for Scientific Information, and INSPEC all use the electronic editions for their coverage of SIAM journals.

Because SIAM journal papers are published in PDF form in electronic volumes and issues that correspond to the later print archive, they are paginated at the time of electronic publication. Our articles can be fully cited with volume, issue, and page numbers.

When citing SIAM articles always use the year of electronic publication. For example, here is the correct citation, in SIAM style, for the following article. It was published electronically November 2, 2017, in volume 55, number 6 of SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, an issue mailed to print subscribers in January 2018.

CHARLES DOSSAL, VINCENT DUVAL, AND CLARICE POONSampling the Fourier Transform Along Radial LinesSIAM J. Numer. Anal., 55 (2017), pp. 2540-2564.

The year of publication is 2017, despite the fact that the print issue mailing is 2018.

The year of publication appears as part of the copyright line at the top of each paper, as well as in a footnote to the paper's title, in which the complete date of electronic publication is given. To help eliminate any confusion about the publication date SIAM print journals specify, " articles="" originally="" published="" online="" [month="" year]="" to="" year]."="" <="" p="" >="" <="">

SIAM Review and Theory of Probability and Its Applications are not produced on a paper-by-paper basis. SIREV, because it contains unique sections, is published electronically as a complete issue three weeks before the print issue is mailed. TVP is an English-language translation of the Russian journal Teoriya Veroyatnostei i ee Primeneniya. SIAM also publishes a number of all-electronic journals with papers published continuously: SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems, SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry, SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics, SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences, and SIAM/ASA Journal on Uncertainty Quantification.
