  • Online Citation Tools

    1. 1. Online citation Tools
    2. 2. First a little history • Web 1 - modems. Data was slow to access and slow to find. Wasn’t a huge benefit to finding scholarly information online more than a library - although textual databases (not through a web browser) did have a place
    3. 3. The Web 1 data finding process
    4. 4. • 1. 0 Go to a computer terminal in a library • 2. 1 Enter some search terms in one or more favourite scholarly databases of journals • 2.2 Become baffled why nothing or everything turns up on a search (e.g. “occupational OR therapy”) • 2.3 Spend the next two hours refining search terms • 2.4 Get a list of references • 2.5 Hope the search engine doesn't time out • 2.6 Print or write out by hand a list of abbreviations and citations that you then have to.. • 2.6 Scurry off to other databases to see if its online in fulltext or in the library • 3.0 Find the article or give up after spending a day at the library without food or water.
    5. 5. And then what..
    6. 6. • A list of references or full-text photocopies/ print outs that become rapidly un- manageable..
    7. 7. • A list of references or full-text photocopies/ print outs that become rapidly un- manageable.. • A friend asks you “do you have such and such article?” you grimace (because it has taken you ages to find it) and say “think so” because genuinely you have no idea whether you did find it or not..
    8. 8. • A list of references or full-text photocopies/ print outs that become rapidly un- manageable.. • A friend asks you “do you have such and such article?” you grimace (because it has taken you ages to find it) and say “think so” because genuinely you have no idea whether you did find it or not..
    9. 9. And then this Web 2.0 • Web 2 - broadband. Data faster = more people online = more need to get all information online. Becoming much more useful
    10. 10. • But the Web 1 model still not much different • More is online - not a lot harder to manage and find data • A real need for OT where data regarding intervention is scattered and often not in the top level scientific type journals
    11. 11. Data finding and management is needed for every OT because..
    12. 12. Data finding and management is needed for every OT because.. • We are all researchers • We all need to find up-to-date information • We all need to communicate with our peers and share this information to build on it • If its hidden away how can we?
    13. 13. The old way
    14. 14. The old way
    15. 15. The old way
    16. 16. The old way
    17. 17. The new way
    18. 18. The new way Discussion Rank Comment
    19. 19. The new way = Social citation managers
    20. 20. The new way = Social citation managers • Long word
    21. 21. The new way = Social citation managers • Long word • Simple concept
    22. 22. The new way = Social citation managers • Long word • Simple concept • Citations stored online (“the cloud”) rather than your own computer or paper(!)
    23. 23. The new way = Social citation managers • Long word • Simple concept • Citations stored online (“the cloud”) rather than your own computer or paper(!) • Focus is sharing your literature with others and finding other relevant references rather than integrating with word etc.. (e.g. Endnote)
    24. 24. The new way = Social citation managers • Long word • Simple concept • Citations stored online (“the cloud”) rather than your own computer or paper(!) • Focus is sharing your literature with others and finding other relevant references rather than integrating with word etc.. (e.g. Endnote) • Export and Import your references / data
    25. 25. The new way = Social citation managers • Long word • Simple concept • Citations stored online (“the cloud”) rather than your own computer or paper(!) • Focus is sharing your literature with others and finding other relevant references rather than integrating with word etc.. (e.g. Endnote) • Export and Import your references / data • A number of sites (citeulike, mendeley) - all work slightly different
    26. 26. An example • CiteULike • “scrapes” the data remotely • E.g. • Install the “browser button” (a complex url that sits in your web browsers tool bar) • 1. Find a citation on say pubmed • 2. Click on the browser button on your toolbard • 3. Citeulike looks at the URL and downloads the page itself - it then extracts the data and presents it to you for you to tag, upload the pdf etc.. • 3. Done! Carry on your literature search
    27. 27. Lots of others! • Zotero - a firefox plugin - works very well - being used by a large number of indviduals and fairly stable and well developed • Bibsonomy - an opensource citeulike clone. Useful for placing on your own servers if you need to • Desktop citation managers: endnote, bibdesk, refworks.. (but excusing bibdesk, they all cost!!) - good at integrating into Word - rubbish at sharing and keeping your data online (NB: you can export data from this into an online based manager if you wish to get going quickly!)
    28. 28. Mendeley • CiteULike is one of the easiest ways to get started. Mendeley has a similar web interface (& confusingly can sync with citeulike!) but its real power comes in a desktop client • You can start to use the client as a Endnote replacement (it works with Word for example) - as well as a starting point to find more related articles
    29. 29. Academia.edu • Like delicious (and thus citeulike) for academia - but note - its for academia.. So those who don’t have .edu or .ac.uk type email address’ can forget it • Many other features to help you connect with other researchers • Worth a look!
    30. 30. CiteULike part 2. • You now have one citation in citeulike. Once you have several you can collect them using your tags and share them - either to a private group (e.g. Workmates who would have the same access to journals as you) or public (who don’t see your fulltext uploads) • People can comment on articles • You can see which you have read and rate them • You can also export lists (using tags) for use in a bibliography or printed reading list (perhaps!)
