Publishing plotly graphs in an academic article

I’m a student working in a psychology lab in my university. We would like to publish an academic article featuring graphs we made using Pyplot. Since we’re not currently using any of your paid services, I’d like to know if we’re allowed to publish it, and if so, under which conditions.

Thanks a lot!

Hello, plotly graphing libraries are completely open source (MIT license), we’re happy that you can use them in your papers! It’s not required, but of course we appreciate if you can cite the plotly library in your paper in order to credit the open source tools which you are using.
