When using the MICA toolbox or any of its components you will have to cite Troscianko & Stevens (2015).

When using any of the components introduced to MICA by QCPA you will have to cite our forthcoming paper (van den Berg & Troscianko et al. 2019).

When using the AcuityView module in QCPA you will have to cite both Caves & Johnsen 2017 as well as van den Berg & Troscianko et al. 2019

The MICA toolbox provides the user with continuous feedback on who and what to cite via regularly placed popups.
