Manage publications


Introduction: In BibSonomy, 'publications' means all kinds of documents (articles, monographs, etc.). You can create and manage your own or third-party publications (for example as the basis for a scientific research).


Add publications

Goal: This tutorial shows you how to add a new publication in BibSonomy, e.g. to create a publication list later.

  1. Move the pointer over the menu item "add post" in the Main Menu. A sub-menu appears.

  2. Click on "add publication" in the menu by pressing the left mouse button.

  3. There are four different possibilities to add new publications:
    • manual: You can add all entries manually.

      1. Enter all required data into the appropriate fields.
      2. Click on "post".
      3. The next dialog allows you to add additional information. You can also skip this step by clicking directly on "Save" to store the publication.
    • BibTeX/EndNote snippet: This option allows you to import the data from almost any literature management program (for example Citavi). You can find the instructions here.

    • upload file: This option allows you to upload EndNote and BibTeX files to BibSonomy to import them automatically. You can find the instructions here.

    • ISBN/DOI - the fastest way: Allows you to enter publications by ISBN, ISSN, or DOI.

      1. Fill in the boxes with the ISBN, ISSN or DOI. 2. Click on "post". 3. The data is automatically collected from various catalogs. 4. If you agree with the displayed data, click on "save".

  • scan code: This option allows you to add a publication by scanning its ISBN code with your webcam. A detailed description how to do this can be found here.

Create publication lists

Goal: This tutorial shows you how to create publication lists with your publications or with the publications of another user. You can use these publication lists on external websites (see also: URL syntax).
To create publication lists, just enter the following URLs into your browser.

Note: The lists will show 20 items only. You can display more items by adding ?items=variousnumber at the end of the URL (replace variousnumber with the number of posts you want to be displayed).

  • General list:
    http://www.bibsonomy.org/publ/user/<username> Replace <username> by your own username.
    Example: <http://www.bibsonomy.org/publ/user/hotho>.

  • General list without tags:
    http://www.bibsonomy.org/publ/user/<username>?notags=1
    Replace <username> by your own username.
    Example: <http://www.bibsonomy.org/publ/user/hotho?notags=1>.

  • General list with tag limitation:
    http://www.bibsonomy.org/publ/user/<username>/<tagname> Replace <username> by your own username and <tagname> by the tag that the publications should be tagged with.
    Example: <http://www.bibsonomy.org/publ/user/hotho/myown>.

  • BibTeX list:
    http://www.bibsonomy.org/bib/user/<username> Replace <username> by your own username. A list of BibTeX entries for the publications of a user is created.

Note: The list will show 20 items only. You can display more items by adding ?items=variousnumber at the end of the URL. Replace variousnumber with the number of posts you want to be displayed (see also URL syntax.)

Example: <http://www.bibsonomy.org/bib/user/hotho>.
