Posting to CiteULike is much easier if you use one of our bookmarklets. You can install one by dragging one the "Post to CiteULike" links below onto your browser links bar. (There are detailed instructions here but note that the bookmarklet on that page is the classic one without popups - there are other options below.)
When you are viewing an article you would like to post to CiteULike, simply click on the bookmarklet and we will attempt to extract the metadata for the article. We support a huge number of journals, but please let us know if there's a journal you'd like us to support. Many users have even contributed to CiteULike by writing their own plugins.
This posts to CiteULike using the current window. When you are finished posting, you will be returned to the original article page.
This opens up a popup window to post the article. If you would like to change the size of the popup, edit the width and height to suit. You may need to configure your browser to allow popups from CiteULike.
These add support for Scopus, ISI Web of Knowledge, Mendeley, Google Scholar and Google Books. In addition it supports multiple simultaneous postings from PubMed.
Scopus and ISI. These are protected site which we can't normally access the data from. The bookmarklet tries to extract a DOI from the page (if available) and posts that instead. Note that the posted article won't have a link back to Scopus/ISI.
Google Books. This looks for an Amazon.com link and posts that. There will normally be a link back to Google Books, though (through the ISBN).
Google Scholar.NEW All the articles on the current Google Scholar view will be shown on a separate CiteULike page, from where you can post them individually.
PubMed. On the search results page in PubMed, click on one or more (max. 10) of the checkboxes next to the articles, then click on the bookmarklet. CiteULike will attempt to post them all at the same time.
Mendeley. You can directly post from any "catalogue" or "publication" page as long as the URL is one that we support. On your Mendeley library page, you should select ("check") a single article and then click the CiteULike bookmarklet.
Selected Text. Select any URL in the page (including text starting with "doi:", "pmid:", "isbn:") and the bookmarklet will try to post that. You can also select a "bare" DOI, PubMedID or ISBN and the bookmarklet will try its best to do the right thing.
Note:This new bookmarklet is undergoing current development so you may need to reinstall it from time to time. You will be told when this is necessary.
Please report any problems using the forums.
Although we recommend using the advanced bookmarklet to post arbitrary DOIs, ISBNs and PubMedIDs from a text selection, some users may prefer the following option:
Firefox (and maybe other browsers) support custom protocol handlers Below are a few for DOI, PubMed and ISBN. Click on them to install (you can disable them later). Whenever you see a DOI, PubMedID or ISBN, simply cut and paste "doi:xxxxxx", "pmid:xxxxx" or "isbn:xxxx" into the browser address bar (don't worry about capitals or spaces after the ":") and it will post directly to CiteULike. This is especially useful if either (a) the site is not supported by CiteULike or (b) the page you are on is not the one you want to post (e.g., the DOI is a reference to another article).
As far as we are aware, these links do nothing in browsers other than FireFox, but there's probably no harm in trying them.
