I was checking out a paper today in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics and was rather surprised, nay astounded, to see a prominent link to social bookmarking (see graphic).
Guess what the options were on clicking the link?
Complore? What the hell is that? Oh, a site for Indians studying for their MBA entrance exams for qual and quant analysis, it seems. Eeek, what is that doing in a cancer journal?
No StumbleUpon, Mendeley, Zotero, Diigo?
It seems a bit of an arbitrary list but hey, we technology friendly scientists should be pleased to see any bookmarking I suppose, but still. The only one I personally use in their list is Delicious but increasingly prefer Zotero and Diigo for social bookmarking.
Ah well, I look forward to seeing a Share This widget, then you can choose your sharing options more freely.
Are these appearing in mainstream journals in other therapy areas?
If so, that's a good reason as any to have some fireworks on July 4th 😉
