Data is available from [HTML_REMOVED]2007-05-30[HTML_REMOVED] onwards.

The file constitutes an anonymous dump of [HTML_REMOVED]who[HTML_REMOVED] posted

  [HTML_REMOVED]what[HTML_REMOVED] and [HTML_REMOVED]when[HTML_REMOVED] the posting took place. There is no
  data in this file which is not already available publicly through the
  web site, so there are no privacy implications for making it
  available. The advantage is that it's available in one file rather
  than having to spider the entire site to get at the information
  (please don't do that!).

The file is a simple unix ("n" line endings) text file with pipe ("|")

  delimiters. The columns are:


[HTML_REMOVED]The CiteULike article id which was posted[HTML_REMOVED]

[HTML_REMOVED]An obfuscated representation of the username (a salted MD5 hash of

  the true username). Again, it is possible to piece back together what
  the true username is by scraping the site, but I'd rather you didn't
  do that. The reason I've gone to the trouble of obfuscation is
  primarily a slightly paranoid anti-spam measure[HTML_REMOVED]

[HTML_REMOVED]The date and time the article was posted to the site[HTML_REMOVED]

[HTML_REMOVED]The tag the user used to post it[HTML_REMOVED]


[HTML_REMOVED]NB[HTML_REMOVED] Note that if a user posts an article with [HTML_REMOVED]n[HTML_REMOVED]

  tags, then this will result in [HTML_REMOVED]n[HTML_REMOVED] rows in the file

[HTML_REMOVED]Article linkout data[HTML_REMOVED]

Mapping CiteULike article_ids to resources on the web can be done

  with the linkout table. The current snapshot is available at  href="http://static.citeulike.org/data/linkouts.bz2" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://static.citeulike.org/data/linkouts.bz2
