A tool for producing citations and bibliographies in WordPress posts. Developed for the Knowledgeblog project (http://knowledgeblog.org).

Interprets the [cite] shortcode to produce citations from the appropriate sources, also produces a formatted bibliography at the foot of the post, with appropriate links to articles.

This plugin now uses multiple resources to retrieve metadata about the references in question, including CrossRef, DataCite, arXiv, PubMed and arbitrary URLs.

Additional documentation is available at Process.


DOI Example - [cite source='doi']10.1021/jf904082b[/cite]

PMID example - [cite source='pubmed']17237047[/cite]

Whichever 'source' is identified as the default (see Installation), will work without the source attribute being set in the shortcode. so:


Will be interpreted correctly as long as DOI is set as the default metadata source.

Kcite now supports DOIs from both CrossRef and DataCite. Identifiers from PubMed or arXiv are directly supported. URLs are supported via Greycite.

From Kcite 1.4, Citeproc-js (https://bitbucket.org/fbennett/citeproc-js/wiki/Home) is used to render the bibliography on the browser; the main visible change it that Author-Year citation is used. There is now experimental support for reader switching. This must be enabled in the settings page as it is off by default.

Kcite is developed at http://code.google.com/p/knowledgeblog/ in Mercurial. To contact the authors, please email knowledgeblog@googlegroups.com.
