Quick Medical Citation and PDF File Name Generator

This is a quick tool that I thought I would share with everyone. Essentially, it's a citation generator for medical references (and others) using PMID codes. Created by Mick Shroeder, PharmD, an informatics pharmacist, it is available on his website here.

 To use this generator, all you need is the PMID or associated identifying code.

I have used this generator to get quick references (which are not always correct mind you, especially with author listing and page citation) that I can come back to, and to generate PDF filenames for papers, which I find really useful as it becomes standardized and has all of the information I need.

 In this example I have generated my citation and PDF file name.

I hope you find this useful in your work!
