BibTeX bibliography formatting plugin

Description

BibTeX bibliography formatting plug-in is a native Joomla extension to present a BibTeX bibliography within an article (content item) in a human-readable format. bib files are included with the syntax {bibtex}filename.bib{/bibtex}, and bibliography entries are formatted as HTML in a language-dependent manner. The plug-in handles some common LaTeX accents and special symbols, which are converted to UTF-8. Linked to the formatted entries, raw BibTeX is included in the output as preformatted text. The extension has partial support for ris references.

The plugin uses a collection of PHP classes to manipulate BibTeX files, which are part of the Bibliophile project and downloadable under the GPL licence.

Usage (Joomla 2.5 and later)

During installation, sample BibTeX files are copied to the folder /media/bibtex/example relative to the Joomla portal root. Should you type (not copy-and-paste) the code {bibtex}example.bib{/bibtex} into a content item (after you have enabled the extension), you can test whether the plug-in works correctly.

You can explicitly set the location of the BibTeX files in the administration backend. The BibTeX folder plug-in parameter can be set to an absolute file system path or a relative path. Relative paths are interpreted w.r.t. the folder in which the Joomla web site resides.

Usage (Joomla 1.5)

After installation, the plugin assumes that BibTeX files are located in a folder bibtex in the Joomla portal root. In order to test if the plugin works correctly,

  1. create a folder bibtex in the Joomla portal root;
  2. copy a valid BibTeX bibliography file (e.g. example.bib) into it;
  3. type (not copy-and-paste) the line {bibtex}example.bib{/bibtex} into a content item.

You can explicitly set the location of the BibTeX files in the administration backend. The BibTeX folder plugin parameter can be set to an absolute file system path or a relative path. Relative paths are interpreted w.r.t. the folder in which the Joomla web site resides.

    N2  - Adult Fisher 344 rats were subjected to a unilateral impact to the dorsal cortex above the hippocampus at 3.5 m/sec with a 2 mm cortical depression. This caused severe cortical damage and neuronal loss in hippocampus subfields CA1, CA3 and hilus. Breakdown of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) was assessed by injecting the protein horseradish peroxidase (HRP) 5 minutes prior to or at various times following injury (5 minutes, 1, 2, 6, 12 hours, 1, 2, 5, and 10 days). Animals were killed 1 hour after HRP injection and brain sections were reacted with diaminobenzidine to visualize extravascular accumulation of the protein. Maximum staining occurred in animals injected with HRP 5 minutes prior to or 5 minutes after cortical contusion. Staining at these time points was observed in the ipsilateral hippocampus. Some modest staining occurred in the dorsal contralateral cortex near the superior sagittal sinus. Cortical HRP stain gradually decreased at increasing time intervals postinjury. By 10 days, no HRP stain was observed in any area of the brain. In the ipsilateral hippocampus, HRP stain was absent by 3 hours postinjury and remained so at the 6- and 12- hour time points. Surprisingly, HRP stain was again observed in the ipsilateral hippocampus 1 and 2 days following cortical contusion, indicating a biphasic opening of the BBB following head trauma and a possible second wave of secondary brain damage days after the contusion injury. These data indicate regions not initially destroyed by cortical impact, but evidencing BBB breach, may be accessible to neurotrophic factors administered intravenously both immediately and days after brain trauma.

    N1  - OBJECTIVE: Data from the AIDS In Multi-Ethnic Neighborhoods survey are used to test Stages 1 & 3 of ARRM (a three stage process model of sexual risk behavior change; Catania, Kegeles, & Coates, 1990). Stage 1 analyses examine predictors of labeling one's sexual behavior in terms of HIV risk; Stage 3 concerns predictors of sexual behavior (e.g., condom use) (Stage 2 was not assessed in this first wave of the study but will be examined in wave 2). METHODS: Data were collected in a random household probability study of 1,781 white (41%), black (26%), and Hispanic (25%) (8% Other), unmarried respondents, aged 20-44, residing in selected "high risk" census tracts of San Francisco (Heterosexual = 83%, Homosexual = 13%, Bisexual = 4%). Labeling defined as making an accurate or inaccurate assessment of one's risk for HIV based on prior and current sexual practices. The behavioral outcome is frequency of condom use averaged across sexual partners for the past year. RESULTS: Multiple regression (Logistic & LSQ) analyses indicate that, 1) Accurate labeling of high risk behavior is related to high susceptibility beliefs (Imp. Chi Sq. =,92.46, p less than .0001), but unrelated to knowing someone with AIDS; gay relative to heterosexual men (p less than .03), and Hispanics compared to whites (p less than .01) were more likely to accurately label their behavior, 2) Greater condom use during vaginal or anal intercourse is significantly related to better sexual communication skills, higher perceived benefits and lower costs of condom use, but unrelated to religiosity, self-efficacy, and ethnicity (R's range from .50 - .66); these latter results are substantially the same for men and women, and heterosexuals and gay men. CONCLUSION: The findings 1) suggest the ARRM model is applicable to most social groups, 2) underscore the importance of interventions that enhance communication skills and teach methods of facilitating sexual enjoyment of condoms
