h1. Bibliography Plugin Documentation

We're developing a Plugin to manage project's and user's bibliographical entries. In the issue tracker it is named _feature_36_.

* [[BibliographyOngoingReviewNotes|Ongoing miscellaneous review notes]] from testing during development
* [[BibliographyPluginAlphaVersion|Plugin's Alpha Version Requisites and Notes]]

h2. Objective and Philosophy

Projects hosted on are usually associated with academic publications (papers, articles, etc). These often offer a strong theoretical background to the code that's being hosted on this site, and many times are the only way users can understand what's happening under the hood for a specific project. On the other hand many researchers are now adopting a "reproducible research" philosophy, in which they not only publish the paper/article itself, but also the code and/or data that supports such publication.

The main idea behind this module is to be able to provide a service that ties both features together, making it easy for researchers to make their source code and publications available on the same platform.

Since Redmine is a project-oriented platform, it makes sense that the publications can only be *created, edited, deleted, etc* in the project's scope.
