I would like to ask the Mathematica Stackexchange community if it is possible to use content (i.e., Mathematica codes) published by the forum users in academic papers.
If possible, I would like to hear opinions/thoughts about what is the correct manner to cite the content. The question here is: many users are identified by nicknames, and in this case it is impossible to cite the person directly. In this case should I cite the community itself, or should I try to contact the person who actuallly has presented the content/code, and ask for an authorization?
Thanks in advance.
