The software was developed as a component of activities in the Center for Multiscale Modeling Tools for Structural Biology, an NIH Research Resource supported by the NCRR via grant RR12255. Any publications resulting from the use or application of this software suite should acknowledge MMTSB and the grant RR12255 with an acknowledgement of the form: "The authors of this work acknowledge use of the NMFF software developed within the MMTSB Center and supported through the NIH (RR12255)".

In addition to this acknowledgement, authors of works deriving from use of NMFF are encouraged to reference the original research papers describing the elastic network normal mode model, the rotation-translation block method (RTB) and the papers describing the synthesis of these methods into NMFF.
