A Scientific Collaboration Tool Built on the Facebook Platform

By Steven D. Bedrick and Dean F. Sittig

Abstract

We describe an application (“Medline Publications”) written for the Facebook platform that allows users to maintain and publish a list of their own Medline-indexed publications, as well as easily access their contacts’ lists. The system is semi-automatic in that it interfaces directly with the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed database to find and retrieve citation data. Furthermore, the system has the capability to present the user with sets of other users with similar publication profiles. As of July 2008, Medline Publications has attracted approximately 759 users, 624 of which have listed a total of 5,193 unique publications
