OpenOptogenetics uses the Biblio extension to manage citations.

Citing an article using its PMID

Citing one reference

  • Use the following syntax:
Here is a citation of a paper <cite>Zhang2006</cite>
<biblio>
#Zhang2006 pmid=16990810
</biblio>
  • The above block of code yields:

Here is a citation of a paper [1]

Error fetching PMID 16990810:
  1. Error fetching PMID 16990810: [Zhang2006]

Citing several references

  • To cite several papers, use this syntax:
Here is a citation of several papers <cite>Zhang2006 Berthold2008 Nagel2003 Boyden2005</cite>
<biblio>
#Zhang2006 pmid=16990810
#Berthold2008 pmid=18552201
#Nagel2003 pmid=14615590
#Boyden2005 pmid=16116447
</biblio>
  • The above block of code yields:

Here is a citation of several papers [1, 2, 3, 4]

Error fetching PMID 16990810:
Error fetching PMID 18552201:
Error fetching PMID 14615590:
Error fetching PMID 16116447:
  1. Error fetching PMID 16990810: [Zhang2006]
  2. Error fetching PMID 18552201: [Berthold2008]

All Medline abstracts: PubMed HubMed

Citing a book using its ISBN

To find the book's ISBN, you can check isbndb.com, the ISBN database.

The syntax looks like:

Here is a citation of a book <cite>Goodwin2009</cite>
<biblio>
#Goodwin2009 isbn=0-1237-4836-4
</biblio>

...and yields:

Here is a citation of a book [5]

  1. isbn:0-1237-4836-4. [Goodwin2009]

This does not work. What should I do?

Sometimes the Biblio extension fails to grab the desired reference and displays an error message. In this case, remove the reference and put a regular link, such as:
