How to cite DSI Studio in journal publication?

I would suggest citing the method you used in your publication (e.g. reconstruction method or tracking algorithm) and mentioning that the data were analyzed using DSI Studio ( For example:

Generalized q-sampling imaging (GQI)
GQI is a model-free method that calculates the orientational distribution of the density of diffusing water.
Yeh, Fang-Cheng, Van Jay Wedeen, and Wen-Yih Isaac Tseng, "Generalized-sampling imaging."Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on 29.9 (2010): 1626-1635.

Q-space diffeormophic reconstruction (QSDR)
QSDR is a model-free method that calculates the orientational distribution of the density of diffusing water in a standard space.
Yeh, Fang-Cheng, and Wen-Yih Isaac Tseng, "NTU-90: a high angular resolution brain atlas constructed by q-space diffeomorphic reconstruction." Neuroimage 58.1 (2011): 91-99. [pdf]

Restricted diffusion imaging (RDI)
RDI is a model-free method that calculates the density of diffusing spins restricted within a given displacement distance.
Yeh, Fang-Cheng, Li Liu, T. Kevin Hitchens, and Yijen L. Wu, "Mapping Immune Cell Infiltration Using Restricted Diffusion MRI", Magn Reson Med. accepted, (2016) [pdf]

Deterministic tracking algorithm
The fiber tracking algorithm implemented in DSI Studio is a generalized version of the deterministic tracking algorithm that uses quantitative anisotropy as the termination index.
Yeh, Fang-Cheng, et al. "Deterministic diffusion fiber tracking improved by quantitative anisotropy." (2013): e80713. PLoS ONE 8(11): e80713. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0080713 [link]

Group connectometry
Group connectometry is atlas-based analysis method that tracks association/correlation/group difference along major fiber pathways and statistically tests the findings using false discovery rate.
Yeh, Fang-Cheng, David Badre, and Timothy Verstynen. "Connectometry: A statistical approach harnessing the analytical potential of the local connectome." NeuroImage 125 (2016): 162-171. [pdf]

Individual connectometry
Individual connectometry is atlas-based analysis method that tracks the deviant pathways of one individual (e.g. a patient) by comparing subject's data with a normal population.
Yeh, Fang-Cheng, Pei-Fang Tang, and Wen-Yih Isaac Tseng. "Diffusion MRI connectometry automatically reveals affected fiber pathways in individuals with chronic stroke." NeuroImage: Clinical 2 (2013): 912-921. [link]
