==== Acknowledging WormBase  ====
We would like to enlist your help in ensuring that WormBase continues to exist and is successful. You can do this by explicitly acknowledging WormBase in each of your
papers when you have used it in the planning, design, execution, analysis, or reporting of the research described.
This simple task will help us make the case to administrators at NIH and others for the utility of WormBase. You can do this in two ways:
1. Include in your acknowledgments, a statement thanking WormBase, ‘We thank WormBase’. To save characters, it can be included in a list:  ‘We thank XYZ for reagents, ABC for comments and WormBase’. If this is a problem, just mention the particular WormBase release (WSnnn) in the text.  When you use these methods, the acknowledgements of WormBase are amenable to searching and reporting.
2. As a reviewer or editor, you could check that WormBase is acknowledged, if appropriate.
==== Citing  WormBase  ====
If you base hypotheses or experiments on data found in WormBase, please cite us according to the following guidelines:
WormBase web site, http://www.wormbase.org, release WSXX, date XXX.
Use the current WS release number and release date in your citation. This information is available at the top of the WormBase home page.
For data analysis and citation purposes, WormBase offers periodic freezes of both the database and WormBase software. These freezes, occuring with every tenth release of the database, are permanently archived at wsXXX.wormbase.org. They can be cited using the following URLs:

==== Citing A Specific Page ====
If you'd like to cite a specific page, you should use the WormBase "get" URL. Although pages may change or be retired, this special URL ensures that an object of interest will always be available, even if specific displays are retired.
Make note of the "name" and "class" of the current page:
Substitute these values into the "Get" URL:
From the example above, the URL would be:
==== Published references ====
You may also wish to cite the [[Publications|WormBase Nucleic Acids Research papers]].
