In the various citations that are auto-generated by QIIME 2, I have occasionally found lacunae. Perhaps this is trivial, but the culture around here seems to emphasize meticulous citing habits, which I share and support. The classic post Alpha and Beta Diversity Explanations and Commands does an excellent job, but users have to know about it, whereas the systematic approach would be to close gaps in the auto-generated citations. So how are the citations made by the details tab in view.qiime2.org, or by running
qiime citations [filename] or the
[command] --citations option? E.g., I ask because for my Chao1 and Simpson qzvs, at least, Chao's and Simpson's papers aren't cited. Or running PERMANOVA on Aitchison distances, Anderson's paper for PERMANOVA is cited, but not Aitchison's.
Can users contribute/influence these outputs directly, even though this is no wiki? Or do we just submit a suggestion for every lapse we see/change we'd like to see? I'd rather pitch in directly than complain, but I understand caution in limiting who can edit qiime's outputs.
