How to cite PIVlab

We get a number of requests concerning the question how PIVlab should be cited. Here's our recommendation on how to cite PIVlab:

Thielicke, W. and Stamhuis, E.J. (2014): PIVlab – Towards User-friendly, Affordable and Accurate Digital Particle Image Velocimetry in MATLAB. Journal of Open Research Software 2(1):e30, DOI:

Thielicke, W. and Stamhuis, E. J. (2014): PIVlab - Time-Resolved Digital Particle Image Velocimetry Tool for MATLAB (version: X.XX modify this). 

And please also include a citation to William's PhD thesis (as this is the reason why PIVlab was programmed):

Thielicke, W. (2014): The Flapping Flight of Birds - Analysis and Application. Phd thesis, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.
