"Articles and references online."

What do you like best?

The page allows you to find and incorporate references, records and articles of an academic nature, making it ideal for students, professors and researchers. It is also possible to find groups of a particular topic and save the data that interests us in our library.

What do you dislike?

I think that this page has a very outdated format, it is difficult to update the profile and upload the photo because it does not save the changes. In addition, one feels that it is the same to go to a library to search in a manual file to search for information online. On the other hand, the incorporation of references must have compatible sources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are interested or require an academic research this page will be very helpful, however, you should have some patience to navigate your platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Old school interface"

What do you like best?

CiteULike has a lot of information on articles, and it is different from other databases in that it also has groups and shares information on users who are also interested in the topic.

What do you dislike?

The user interface makes me feel like I am in the 80s and if I am just searching for an article, I would go to another service, such as Mendeley that lets you cite and filter search results more easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was trying to keep track of citations for my research and find new sources.

What Reference Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Incredible way to save and share citations to various journals "

What do you like best?

Author names, title, et.al. are imported automatically. One can even manually add tags for grouping of various references together. It can be used to search references made by all or one user. it encourages discovery of new articles.

What do you dislike?

Application programming interface is missing. Occasionally there is saving and organizing concerns.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We could upload PDFs to attach to the references which helped with coordinating with fellow researchers. It also helped us in recognizing our competition and/or collaborators.
