Journal Review with CiteULike

Getting Started

1. Go to CiteULike
2. Create an account (username, password, email)
3. Email Per your username and he'll send you an invitation to join the group 'paulsson journal review'.
Everyone in the 'paulsson journal review' group has administrative access, so anyone already in the group can also send an invitation to join the group

  • Highly recommended:

4. Add the 'post to citeulike' bookmarklet to your browser's toolbar. I'd recommend the Advanced bookmarklet with no pop-up.
5. Install the CiteULike Enhancement Toolkit - among other things, it gets rid of the ads!
6. Install the LibX toolbar to simplify getting full access to articles through Harvard.

There is plenty of advice on how to use CiteULike on their HowTo page. Here's a little primer to get you going...

Searching, posting, tagging, and sorting

1. Search in PubMed for an article you want to contribute to 'paulsson journal review' (fyi: there are many other ways to browse and link articles to CiteULike).
2. Click the 'Post to CiteULike' button in your browser's toolbar and you will be redirected to a CiteULike posting page:

  • Tags: please enter 'new' if you will present this article at the next Journal Review session
  • Post to: select the 'paulsson journal review' library
  • Priority: choose how important do you think this article is to read
  • Privacy: don't check this box! The 'paulsson journal review' group is already private.
  • Notes: if you've read the article and have something to say about it...
  • Post: before posting, select the box to return to the original article page (this preference should be remembered for future posts)

3. Tags are useful, too many tags are not. There is a search engine, so think of tags as folders rather than just search terms. If you were going to file a single printed article in your drawer, which folder would you put it in (Tag#1). If you had a few more copies of that printed article, which folders would you place these extra copies in (Tags#2-n).
4. Sorting:

  • Use the tags.
  • Use the Enhancement Toolkit sort button in your library (for some reason the sort button doesn't show up in the group library!?!). Have a look at what it does to the URL when you use the sort tool in your library and just modify the URL yourself. For example, append </order/pubdate,desc,last> to the library URL and the citations will be organized by publication date in descending order, and articles without publication date metadata will be placed at the bottom of the list. Replace 'pubdate' with other logical terms, eg. postdate, author, year...
