Welcome to the CSL Editor blog! This space will serve as a hub for information related to the development of a CSL Editor by Columbia University Libraries and Mendeley resulting from a generous grant from the Sloan Foundation.
The goal of this project is to develop a working prototype of a Citation Style Language (CSL) editor and to share it with researchers who employ various reference management applications. Columbia University Libraries and Mendeley will collaborate using an AGILE development strategy to produce a CSL editor with a sophisticated graphical user interface and a flexible back-end to support developing user needs and ever-changing filetypes, citation conventions, and custom bibliographic styles. The code for the prototype CSL editor will be deposited into an open-source repository during and at the end of the project for the research community to build upon and to further improve the prototype application resulting from this project.
