How to cite CP2K

When performing calculations with CP2K, you will find a “R E F E R E N C E S” section in the output. This section lists the scientific articles that describe the specific modules and methods used in the calculation.

When using CP2K as part of a scientific publication, the CP2K developer team kindly asks you to acknowledge their work by citing the articles in the “R E F E R E N C E S” section.

Sometimes, you may need to cite CP2K in contexts where a detailed list of references is not appropriate (for example, as part of a list of quantum chemistry or solid state physics software packages). In this case, we recommend citing the latest relevant CP2K review. As of May 2020, this is 10.1063/5.0007045.
