ResearchGATE now supports COinS
5th February 2010
As one of the many requested features, ResearchGATE now supports COinS (ContextObjects in Spans).
COinS is an open and easy to use specification for publishing OpenURL bibliographic metadata in HTML. On web pages, embedded COinS can be read and processed by applications. A COinS section is embedded in each of our publication pages. This means that other bookmarklets can extract and process the information from ResearchGATE’s publication pages.The addition of COinS to ResearchGATE will allow scientists and researchers to access their colleagues' journal publications through their own library subscriptions. A growing number of tools including Zotero and LibX support COinS." said Eric Hellmann, editor of the COinS specification.Thanks for your feedback and we are looking forward to your next ideas.
