How to cite Stan [moved to GitHub]

I’m about to cite Stan in a journal article. The canonical recommendation reads:

To cite Stan itself you can cite the Stan manual, taking the year and version from the latest release documented at https://mc-stan.org/users/documentation/:
Stan Development Team. YEAR. Stan Modeling Language Users Guide and Reference Manual, VERSION. https://mc-stan.org

However, the user’s guide and the reference manual are now separate books. Time for an updated recommendation?

Sorry if I’m missing something.

no, you’re not missing anything - this is a good question. I’ve created an issue for the Stan @SGB: how to cite Stan and DOIs · Issue #9 · stan-dev/sgb · GitHub

let’s continue the discussion there
