    Citation Note

    Many plugins have been published separately as summarized on Fiji's publications (http://fiji.sc/Publications) page. The authors of Fiji would like Fiji users to cite both the paper listed as the primary citation below as well as the plugin specific paper. However, if journal reference limits interfere, the plugin specific publication should take precedence.
