While I try my best to cite scholarly resources and journals in Logos for academic papers, at times, the interactive resources and datasets that are available in Logos are becoming increasingly beneficial in my research. 

However, I am not sure of the best way to cite such resources if I use any of the data from them in an academic paper (and style manuals generally do not cover the best way to cite these either). I have generally pieced together my own citations, but it hasn't been ideal.

Can Logos offer a way to pull citations/bibliographic information from these in the future?

Thanks!

The Interactive resources offer a citation on their Information page.

For datasets Factbook might be useful e.g. for Baptism of Jesus

Faithlife Corporation. (2017). Baptism of Jesus (Version 7.9) [Computer software]. Logos Bible Software Factbook. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife Corporation. Retrieved from https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25baptismOfJesus

The About page gives you version information for datasets e.g. DB:LEXHAM-CULTURAL-ONTOLOGY; 2017-04-26T16:22:46Z. So if you were citing results for Baptism i.e. from {Section <Culture Baptism>} = 91 in 91 verses in the NT it could be:

Faithlife Corporation (2017). Baptism (Version 2017-04-26) [Computer software]. Lexham Cultural Ontology. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife Corporation. Retrieved from {Section <Culture Baptism>}

Excellent. I'll look over all this info and check out the info panes. Thanks for this!
