Was it intentional? — Daniel Forgues 02:28, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

YES! - N J A Sloane

Google Scholar

For RFC 4408 (OpenSPF) I created a Google Scholar e-mail alert; it works like a charme. If you want to get an e-mail whenever Google Scholar finds a new book or citation for OEIS click on the initialized Google Scholar search query, and then on "create alert" (Google account required, protect your online privacy).

Google Scholar (initialized query)

In the following

I added


to get rid of medical links related to (also removed) medical links


By doing so, do we risk losing some relevant links, e.g. "OEIS complex numbers" or something else? — Daniel Forgues 03:52, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Compare with what we get if we don't remove +-%22OEIS+complex%22

A Google search of "OEIS complex" seems to only produce medical related links, so I don't think we loose relevant links. — Daniel Forgues 04:00, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Referencing OEIS

It is said, "To reference a particular sequence, the usual citation is: OEIS Foundation Inc. (2011), The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences," I have 2 concerns about this:

  1. I don't think it' correct to put the "OEIS Foundation" as author. (Comparing with other collaborative works like wikipedia, I think best would be to put no author at all, but there might be better ideas.).
  2. Comparing with citation of individual items (papers, contributions...) in a collection (proceedings,...) I think the individual title should be cited first, followed by "(in:) The OEIS", viz, e.g.: "A123456, in: The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEISF...)," MFH 10:54, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
