What I’d like to highlight here is a complementary service to Mendeley that can help you curate your own subsection of journal articles, including comments and reviews to and from fellow academics who weren’t invited to review the articles the first time around.

Simple Citations Why was Simple Citations created? Simple Citations was created because none of the software applications for maintaining family history data has ever incorporated (or developed) a standardized, simple-to-use, method to cite genealogical data in a consistent manner. Indeed, citing sources has always been a nightmare. Part of the reason for this is that the first software application to receive widespread use was Personal Ancestral File (PAF) which advocated the use of GEnealogical Data COMmunication (GEDCOM) as means to share genealogical data between computer programs. Unfortunately, GEDCOM became the de facto standard despite the fact that it was so poorly designed. icyte Keep your websites iCyte lets you save webpages & PDF's exactly as you remember them.

Recommended Search Engines-The Library-University of California Google alone is not always sufficient, however. Not everything on the Web is fully searchable in Google.
