    Brief Description : DEJAVU is a manually curated repository of duplicate citations found in several databases, including Medline. In the scientific research community plagiarism and multiple publications of the same data are considered unacceptable practices undermining the public confidence in scientific integrity. DEJAVU? vu is a database of duplicate citations (abstracts and titles) that are computationally identified with the text similarity searching tool eTBLAST and manually confirmed (2;3). Duplications are recorded along with user provided commentary and evidence to affirm or deny a given documents putative categorization. The availability of a search tool by which journal submissions can be compared to existing databases to identify potential duplicate citations, and this database of duplicate citations increases the ability of the scientific community to identify duplications and provides means to help prevent the multiple publication of a scientific study. The DEJAVU database is freely accessible at http://spore.swmed.edu/dejavu. The tool eTBLAST is also freely available at http://invention.swmed.edu/etblast/etblast.shtml.
