I need to write reference on 6-311++g(d,p) basis set in my work where I used it on atoms of I-II periods. Does anyone know where it was first published?

    $\begingroup$ If there is no particular reason to use Pople-type (Pople only developed double zeta quality) basis sets, you probably better switch to a more recent and more efficient one. $\endgroup$ – Martin - マーチン Jul 10 at 8:57

You should look on Basis set exchange

After you select your basis set of interest, on the bottom left you click "Get References for selected basis", and in this case you obtain (I did it for elements C,H,O):
