Accordingly, any part of CiteULike (or its source HTML code) may not be used, transferred, copied or reproduced in whole or in part in any manner other than for the purposes of utilising CiteULike meaning that you may only display it on your computer screen and print it out on your printer for the sole purpose of viewing its content.'
