Citing

This page describes how to cite SciJava projects.

  • For information on who contributes to these projects, see Contributors.
  • For information on who maintains these projects, see Governance.
  • For information on how ImageJ projects are funded, see Funding.


Guidelines

We ask users to cite:

  1. Any specific publications of plugins used.
  2. The general paper of ImageJ distribution(s) used—e.g., if you used Fiji, cite the Fiji paper.
  3. The general ImageJ paper.

If journal reference limits interfere, the plugin-specific publications should take precedence.

In general, please cite these projects—their long-term future depends on it!

Thank you for your support.
