# How to acknowledge answers of TCS in the paper?

I am researcher in a company from last 5 years.

I have received few answers on Theoretical Computer Science stack exchange regarding my current research work. They are not the main part of the paper but some preexisting results and some are like direct observations ( or wikipedia results). I am confused what to do with these answers. I mean Do I need to approach persons who have answered my questions or Should I just write an acknowledgement in the paper.

• Whether acknowledged or more, I like to explicitly mention that the interaction was facilitated by this site. Helps show impact on "real work", and that we're not all just wasting time on the internet :P. Jul 7 '21 at 21:18
• In case you cite the result, do not forget to mention it here. Just for fun. Jul 13 '21 at 23:16

And here's the bibtex entry you get: $$\begin{verbatim} @MISC {49216, TITLE = {How to acknowledge answers of TCS in the paper?}, AUTHOR = {Denis (https://cstheory.stackexchange.com/users/8953/denis)}, HOWPUBLISHED = {Theoretical Computer Science Stack Exchange}, NOTE = {URL:https://cstheory.stackexchange.com/q/49216 (version: 2021-07-07)}, EPRINT = {https://cstheory.stackexchange.com/q/49216}, URL = {https://cstheory.stackexchange.com/q/49216} } \end{verbatim}$$
