“Beyond the PDF” workshop at Science Online London 2011

Martin Fenner demonstrated how to use his three WordPress plugins: BibTex Importer, Link to Link and KCite to introduce citations to scientific articles into a blog post. I have now installed these plugins and will insert a few citations below to see how easy this is:

This is a reference for a paper on Drosophila [cite source=’doi’ rel=’cito:cites’]10.1016/j.neuroscience.2011.06.058[/cite] and this is one on Hermissenda [cite source=’doi’ rel=’cito:cites’]10.1016/j.neuroscience.2011.06.063[/cite] or one on the leech [cite source=’doi’ rel=’cito:cites’]10.1242/jeb.057224[/cite]. If this worked, there should be a reference list at the bottom of this post.

In the afternoon part of the workshop Eva Amsen showed how to link a blog post to researchblogging.org, which is what I already demoed in our journal club, so I won’t cover it here.

Now, after two weeks, my provider is fiddeling with some settings to make the citation plugins working. Looking good so far! We have citations!

The importance of open science

I met Michael Nielsen at ScienceOnline 2009 and I think his talk here shows why we should strive to do science as openly as practically possible in our lab:

Which is precisely why I have invited him to give a talk here in Berlin while he’s on tour. Let’s hope he accepts the invitation.
