Citing KNIME

I was hopping that someone could tell me what was the prefered way of citing KNIME in a publication. Does KNIME (University of Konstanz, Zurich, Switzerland) work, or should I cite an actual paper?


Hi, thank you very much for citing KNIME. We created a FAQ entry for your question. Best, Fabian

Hi all,


in addition to the 2007 paper listed in that FAQ entry, I also found:

 author = {Berthold, Michael R. and Cebron, Nicolas and Dill, Fabian and Gabriel, Thomas R. and K\"{o}tter, Tobias and Meinl, Thorsten and Ohl, Peter and Thiel, Kilian and Wiswedel, Bernd},
 title = {KNIME - the Konstanz Information Miner: Version 2.0 and Beyond},
 journal = {SIGKDD Explor. Newsl.},
 issue_date = {June 2009},
 volume = {11},
 number = {1},
 month = nov,
 year = {2009},
 issn = {1931-0145},
 pages = {26--31},
 numpages = {6},
 url = {},
 doi = {10.1145/1656274.1656280},
 acmid = {1656280},
 publisher = {ACM},
 address = {New York, NY, USA},

Which one should be cited? Are there other papers I'm not aware of? Would you mind updating the FAQ entry?

Hi everyone,

is there a way to cite specific workflows? In my case the “Model Optimization and Selection” Workflow. Or just the common citization explained above?


Hi there @Gsiberger,

Don’t think so. Would suggest to check license and use short link when linking.

Additionally for this specific workflow you can add blog post link about:
