Hi, I found that AFP will generate a bibtex snippet for each entry. It is extremely helpful when using and citing such works. Now, I want to cite AFP itself, is such bibtex snippet also avaible?
What do you mean with "citing the AFP"? It is a journal with an ISSN, which you can use to refer to it.
I would just cite the webpage of the afp as a "@misc" entry (maybe add the ISSN in the note field?).
I would argue it's a question of intention - if you want to refer to the webpage or information on it, refere to the page; if you want to refer to the journal, use the ISSN. A footnote is probably more suitable for both. Citations usually refer to published articles.
Thank you for the answers! I was intended to cite the webpage.
AFP entries, and websites in general, are data sets. You can cite them as such. One good explanation of how to do that is below:
