How can I cite LimeSurvey (in an academic paper)?

Hey guys,

I love LimeSurvey, and use it for a number of academic research projects. I now write the first paper about data collected with LimeSurvey. Therefore, I would like to cite LimeSurvey. Perhaps it is useful if LimeSurvey promotes a standardized way of doing this? This would make it easy to track papers based on LimeSurvey, and recommending a way of crediting LimeSurvey would increase the probability that LimeSurvey is mentioned in a paper, thereby increasing the number of potential users you reach. Currently, I can cite the paper by Nicole Engard ( www.mendeley.com/research/limesurvey-httplimesurveyorg/ ) or the documentation ( www.mendeley.com/research/limesurvey-documentation/ ).

I think providing something like cran.r-project.org/doc/FAQ/R-FAQ.html#Citing-R would be great. I would, however, not know how to complete this information in the case of LimeSurvey :-) This is about as far as I get:

@Manual{,
title = {LimeSurvey - The free and open source survey software
tool!},
author = {{LimeSurvey Development Team}},
organization = {LimeSurvey Development Team},
year = 2012,
url = { limesurvey.org }
}

Does there exist a 'LimeSurvey foundation' like you have for R? I guess that foundation's address would be the Limesurvey 'hometown'?

What do other users (and developers) think?

Excellent, thanks! I didn't manage to find this using google or by search the forums. I just tried again and now this forum post shows up as second hit, so you're also helping people from the future with this question :-)

PS: For these people from the future (hi :-)): so the BibTeX entry would become:
     @Manual{,
       title        = {LimeSurvey: An Open Source survey tool},
       author       = {{LimeSurvey Project Team / Carsten Schmitz}},
       organization = {LimeSurvey Project},
       address      = {Hamburg, Germany},
       year         = 2012,
       url          = {http://www.limesurvey.org}
     }

seems to be correct for me... probably since the default for me is dutch language. Also noticed the translated pages don't show this correctly.
