Some guidelines for citing package ‘surveillance’ in publications:

If hhh4() is used, cite:

Paul, M. and Held, L. (2011). Predictive assessment of a non-linear random effects model for multivariate time series of infectious disease counts. Statistics in Medicine, 30(10), 1118-1136. doi:10.1002/sim.4177

If twinstim() is used, cite:

Meyer, S., Elias, J. and Höhle, M. (2012). A space-time conditional intensity model for invasive meningococcal disease occurrence. Biometrics, 68(2), 607-616. doi:10.1111/j.1541-0420.2011.01684.x

If twinSIR() is used, cite:

M. Höhle (2009). Additive-Multiplicative Regression Models for Spatio-Temporal Epidemics. Biometrical Journal, 51(6), 961--978. doi:10.1002/bimj.200900050

For many of the algo.* functions, the appropriate citation is:

M. Höhle (2007). surveillance: An R package for the monitoring of infectious diseases. Computational Statistics, 22(4), 571--582. doi:10.1007/s00180-007-0074-8

In general, the references given in the help pages of the respective main functions should be used.
