The underlying question is whether the paper fitted the simultaneous
autoregressive model (spatial error model, SEM), or the spatial lag model
(a.k.a. SAR) using Bayesian methods. If it did, then reporting DIC seems
possibly sensible, if it used ML, it doesn't make much sense anyway. All
kinds of odd things appear in published work, it's worth thinking through
whether they should be there.
