How to add your paper

In order to add your paper you need the usual citation details, a link to the paper, e.g., on the publishers website or in a preprint repository and an electronic version of the abstract. If you have this information at hand it should take you no more than 2 minutes to add your paper (perhaps 10 if it is the first time you use the wiki).
If this is the first paper you add to the site you might want to print this page in order to be able to follow the instructions step by step without switching pages.

Step 1: Adding a line to the publication list

  • Go to the publications page by clicking on Publications in the top bar menu.
  • When you are on the publications page enter the edit mode by clicking on the grey edit button at the bottom of the page.
  • Find the right line where your paper should go by scrolling in the edit box (papers are ordered acording to year and then according to first authors name).
  • Now insert a line for your paper using the format: [[[paper:NameYEARletter]]] -- Authors: //Title// as in the other entries in the list.
  • Once you have finished inserting the line, click on save (grey button below the edit window)

Step 2: Creating an abstract page

If you followed the steps above, a one-line entry for your paper should appear in the publications list. However, the link that is embedded in your entry is still grey. This is about to change now.

  • Find the line corresponding to your paper in the publication list and click on the grey paper ID.
  • A screen will appear telling you that 'The page does not (yet) exist'. Click on create page.
  • You now see the edit window for your new page. If everything is right the edit window should already contain a template for your abstract page.
  • Start with putting in the title. It should not go into the title field, but in the line starting with a '+'. The '+' tells the wiki that a top-level heading follows. There has to be a space after the + in order for this to work.
  • Now you can cut and paste bibliographic information and the abstract below. You can use ** to set the volume number in bold, e.g. **23**.
  • Finally you can add a link to the published version of the paper. An example link is already contained in the template. Note that almost all current publications have a digital object identifier (doi) in this case they can be linked simply by [* This paper in YOURJOURNAL]
  • Once you are finished editing. Click on save (grey button below the edit window) and you are done. Congratulations!

Step 3: Inserting into categories

In order to make your paper more visible and this website more useful you should insert links to the category pages. This is best done in the following way:

  • Click on publications in the top bar menu.
  • Now click edit (grey button below)
  • Find your paper in the list and copy the respective line
  • Now click cancel (grey button below)
  • Browse through the categories that can be found under by-category in the top bar menu.
  • If you find a category into which your paper belongs edit the page, paste the copied line it the right place, and click save.

Finishing touches

Wikidot offers a number of features that you can use to make your pages nices. Here are some suggestions.

  • Please feel free to upload additional material. We have some constraints on storage space but they are not too tight.
  • You can add keywords to your page by using the tag button (grey below). Your tags will appear in the Index. The keyworks are space separated. Please use a dash to enter multi-word tags, e.g. hopf-bifurcation.
  • If you have LaTex equations in your abstract enclose them in [[$ $]] to activate LaTex parsing. For instance [[$a^b$]] becomes $a^b$.
  • Feel free to add material to your paper, such as links to media reports, wikidot can embed even video and audio feeds.
  • Use the discussion feature to discuss publications and ask questions.
