When is a CAM citation required?
CAM is provided as free software. It is also the output of a long-term research effort. As part of the licensing conditions, we thus require that you cite one of the publications listed below if:
- you refer to CAM or any CAM toolbox in your publication, or;
- you include models, screenshots, or other outputs generated using CAM or any CAM toolbox; or
- you refer to a toolbox you have developed using the CAM platform (citation to be placed in an appropriate context, of course!).
How to cite CAM in a bibliography
Overviews of the software that may be used for citation are:
- 2007: Wynn, D.C. "Model-based approaches to support process improvement in complex product development", PhD thesis, University of Cambridge, 2007.
- 2009: Wynn, D.C., Nair, S.M.T. and Clarkson, P.J. "The P3 Platform: An approach and software system for developing diagrammatic model-based methods in design research". In: Norell Bergendahl, M., Grimheden, M., Leifer, L., Skogstad, P., and Lindemann, U. (eds.) Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED'09), Vol. 1, pp. 559-570, 2009.
- 2010: Wynn, D.C., Wyatt, D.F., Nair, S.M.T. and Clarkson, P.J. "An Introduction to the Cambridge Advanced Modeller", Proceedings of MMEP 2010, Cambridge, UK, 2010.
One of these specific items should always be used; citing this website, or another paper describing CAM, is not sufficient on its own.
