Scipion provides a easy way to export all methods used in a project to bibtex format. You'll find it under the methods tab, in the REFERENCES: section. You'll find there all the references for the selected protocols.

Developed by ...

... several teams across the globe. Scipion originated in Madrid, but nowadays its development is distributed among different academic institutions. Although the "core" of Scipion is developed in a few places, Scipion has become a "framework" ready to accept "new packages" (plugins) on the fly, therefore, there are already many people involved and we hope more people will join this project.

CNB - Instruct Image Processing Center

Located in Madrid where Scipion project was initiated. It is the home of Xmipp, a classic in cryo em image processing software and one of the main locations were Scipion is produced.
