Several languages such as Java, Common Lisp, C++ have specifications which are citable with a bibtex in academic papers. I cannot find one for Scala. What do people use to cite Scala specifications in paper submissions?
In particular I’d like to make some claim about the
<:< method for determining the subtype relation in an article I’m putting together. As a last resort I could cite a sha1 of some commit containing the method’s implementation, but I’d like to avoid putting URLs in my bibliography if possible, as some journal editors object.
