Social Citation

How often do you provide accurate citations to your blog or presentations? I didn't think so.  I'm hoping you give proper citations in research papers.  A utility that can help you with the process is CiteULike.  What I like about the site is that you can search their database to build a citation library.  Much like you can do with social bookmarking.  Additionally, like social bookmarking others can see your selection.  This way you are able to make contacts who are interested in similar research.  You can also create groups, so if your students are working on a project collaboratively, the can post all of their information to the group.  There is also a browser button which can help you properly cite information out of articles and papers from a large list of supported cites from across the web.  So, if you're all about the research - check out CiteULike
