Below is a list of key publications related to KIM that describe the project, extensions to the OpenKIM framework, and significant use of KIM capabilities to do science. (The list does not include publications that only use a KIM model in a simulation.) Publications are listed in reverse order starting with the most recent. Links are provided to the full text where available and a news item on the publication.
