I like to use `@techreport`

, like

@techreport{ShakeriBS:16ks_dict,

author = {Z. Shakeri and W.U. Bajwa and A.D. Sarwate},

title = {Minimax Lower Bounds on Dictionary Learning for Tensor Data},

number = {arXiv:1608.02792 [cs.IT]},

month = {August},

year = {2016},

institution = {ArXiV},

url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1608.02792},

}

but the handy-dandy ArXiv to BibTeX uses `@misc`

(which makes it less handy-dandy, TBH):

@misc{1608.02792,

Author = {Zahra Shakeri and Waheed U. Bajwa and Anand D. Sarwate},

Title = {Minimax Lower Bounds on Dictionary Learning for Tensor Data},

Year = {2016},

Eprint = {arXiv:1608.02792},

}

I’d ask this on the TeX Stack Exchange but it seems more of a matter of taste.
