To follow up on this, we perhaps should "educate" the users how to cite.
There are many alternative ways to cite the program which is somewhat
confusing. It may help if the users are better aware of the "standard" way
to cite.

Subject: amber-developers: some citation information

Hi everyone:

I was helping Charlie out with a grant application, and collected the
following numbers from the ISI Web of Science (Jan. 2007):

The "Amber" program has been cited in 1641 articles since version 5, which
released in November, 1997.

[Note that the force field papers, e.g. Cornell et al. have been cited more
than twice as often, about 3680 citations so far. This suggests to me that
a significant number of papers using Amber don't actually cite the program.]

The Pearlman et. al 1995 summary of Amber has been cited 780 times. The
more recent (2005) JCC overview has so far only been cited 45 times.

These numbers might be of use in applications that request some quantitation
of usage of Amber.
