Connotea: social bookmarking system for scientific literature

I have recently started using Connotea which is what they now describe as ” Free online reference management for clinicians and scientists”. I remember seeing a presentation on Connotea at the Data webs workshop I attended, (excellent day of talks and discussions), where Connotea was described as a “social bookmarking for scientists”. I wasn’t overly convinced to use it then and my initial perception was that it was for scientists, so why not use  On a more recent, closer look, I see they have re-branded (or re-advertised) and are concentrating on tagging publications and providing exports to various reference managers, particularly bibtex, my favourite. This feature has convinced me to give it a try and as I am writting my thesis at the moment and I am really putting it through its paces.

I am liking it so far and definately “Discovering” new resources based on my tags. Hopefully I will never need to ask the questions again “Where did I put that paper?” or “I knew I read a paper about ontologies but which one was it?”

    Connotea is one of those up and coming social bookmarking sites, there are quite a few out there now. I love this idea of seeing what other people think of sites before visiting them. I think google is starting to get jealous of all the traffic they are pinching! Citeulike is one of my favourites.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for
    a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Cheers!

    more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
    into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve
    either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people could take a signal. Will
    likely be back to get more. Thanks
