I'm new to the world of contributing to an open source community like this - where contributions are algorithms explored by academic communities. I've done some homework on the topic of scene stabilization. I've implemented a handful of those published approaches and found some success over the existing videostab package in the opencv library. Obviously, citing the source of an algorithm is simply good form, but is there anything else required? Is requesting permission required? Does this answer change if the published paper came from a paid-for service such as IEEE?

As long as you rebuilt the approaches mentioned in the papers and did not do a pull and build of their original source code you are quite safe to go! So add them to the OpenCV package! People will be greatly thankfull for that. Also if there would be any problems later on, the package will just get moved to the nonfree - module.
