Publications about InterMine & Publications that cite InterMine - tell us about them! #7
I just migrated the Galaxy Library from CiteULike to Zotero. I quite liked CiteULike, but it's not getting much maintenance and more and more journal web pages were failing to automatically load in CiteULike.
And, now, I quite like Zotero too. Since moving in September I've only had to paste bibtex for 1 of 200+ papers. The only error I have found so far that's easy to make in Zotero is adding duplicate entries (Zotero also makes them easy to detect.
I looked Mendeley as well as Zotero. I think both are good choices. I went with Zotero because people in the Galaxy community are already using it for other purposes. Zotero is also open, if that matters to you.
I've got email alerts set up with Google Scholar, Web of Science, Wiley, ScienceDirect, and PubMed. I then have custom code that
I curate papers every two weeks. In an average two week period I'll look at ~100 papers and add ~60 to the library. If you only get alerts from one source, or if you get less than 20 alters a month, then then using/custom code to manage them is probably not worth the effort.
By the way, the PubMed searches I use only search the abstracts (which is all pubmed has most of the time, isn't it?). This misses probably 90% of Galaxy papers. Google Scholar returns the most hits, but is also limited on the length of the search string, which means (for me) a fair number of false positives too.
