We ask users to cite:

  1. Any specific publications of plugins used.
  2. The general Fiji paper, if you used Fiji.
  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.
