    Inserting Pubmed links in a wikitext bibliography

    Set up a bibliography format (Endnote, Sente or other ref managers) that outputs in the format:

    * Zhang, J., Campbell, R.E., Ting, A.Y., and Tsien, R.Y. (2002) [ Creating new fluorescent probes for cell biology], ''Nat. Rev. Mol. Cell Biol.'', '''3''', 906-918.<br/>

    The reference will look like:

    This is pretty straightforward as it just involves adding extra little bits of text such as [ and ''' here and there within the bibliography format. Both Sente and Endnote enable the URL to be included in the bibliography (tip from Robert Campbell).

    In-text refs link to complete reference

    Zu07 or any text serving as a link to the <label> associated to each reference.


    • <label>Zu07</label>Zumer J, Attias H, Sekihara K, Nagarajan S. (2007): A probabilistic algorithm integrating source localization and noise suppression for MEG and EEG data. NeuroImage 37:102-115.

    Dear Dr. XXX,

    Thank you again for contributing "XXX" to Scholarpedia. As an Associate Editor of Scholarpedia, I am contacting you on behalf of Dr. Eugene M. Izhikevich regarding the following matter:

    Scholarpedia has a weekly Featured Author column on its main page.

    You were selected to be one of the featured authors. As you can see on the main page, it consists of a short biography (significant positions, awards and honors, and field of research) with a picture.

    If you agree with the general idea, there is some information that I need to write the column. Actually, I found most of it on your academic webpage except for: - a photo of good resolution - your date and place of birth

    Approval of the biography by the featured author is an important part of the process. When I'm finished with writing the draft, I'll send you an email. You will then be able to read the draft directly on your userpage and make corrections if necessary.

    Sincerely yours,

    Abdellatif Nemri, Associate Editor of Scholarpedia.
