References and citations#

An article about scipp has been published in the conference proceedings of ICANS, see Scipp: Scientific data handling with labeled multi-dimensional arrays for C++ and Python or the paywall-free copy on the Arxiv.

A significant amount of changes such as multi-threading and support for binned (event) data has gone into scipp since the publication so we recommend to also cite the scipp documentation pages.


Scipp is available as open source under the BSD-3 license.

Scipp is hosted and developed on GitHub.
