CiteMD (Digg for Medical Literature, Part X)

CiteMD is a community-based popularity website with an emphasis on science articles. It combines social medical bookmarking, blogging, and medical reference management with a form of non-hierarchical, democratic editorial control. News stories and websites are submitted by users, and then promoted to the front page through a user-based ranking system.

The features above aren’t anything new to anyone familiar with the seven similar tools that have previously been mentioned on this blog (see Related Posts below).

What sets CiteMD apart (for me, anyway) is that it will allow the user to “create a document from scratch, insert references and generate the footnotes automatically.” This sounds great as an idea, but when I created an account, logged in, ran a MEDLINE search and selected references to import, it didn’t import the references, telling me I was “not logged in” (when I clearly was)- so it appears to still be working out the kinks.

Also interesting: CiteMD appears to have been built on the Drupal open source CMS.

  1. Thanks for the feedback on CiteMD, we have fixed some issues that were affecting the creation of a new project and importing references into the projects. I will let you know when we release a significant update.
