How to cite VidSync
A peer-reviewed journal article describing VidSync, detailing its underlying mathematical methods, and testing its accuracy is available here:
Neuswanger, Jason R., Wipfli, Mark S., Rosenberger, Amanda E., and Hughes, Nicholas F. 2016. Measuring fish and their physical habitats: Versatile 2-D and 3-D video techniques with user-friendly software. Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences 73(12): 1861-1873.
This is the preferred citation to accompany a use of the software.
If your institution does not have access to CJFAS articles, you can contact Jason Neuswanger to request a PDF of the final journal article, or download the accepted manuscript for free here. The free version is substantively the same, minus the journal's attractive formatting.
How to describe your work with VidSync
To assure repeatable results, especially in behavioral studies, the methods section of a paper should carefully describe the standards used for delineating specific "events" and "objects." An example of how to describe a study-specific VidSync workflow can be found at:
Neuswanger, J., Wipfli, M. S., Rosenberger, A. E., and Hughes, N. F. 2014. Mechanisms of drift-feeding behavior in juvenile Chinook salmon and the role of inedible debris in a clear-water Alaskan stream. Environ. Biol. Fish. 97(5): 489-503. doi:10.1007/s10641-014-0227-x.
