In this paper we propose MentaLink, a tool for preserving and sharing mental links in science. MentaLink can be thought of as Wikipedia for links between scientific publications. Contributors can collaboratively define and edit links between entire articles or specific text passages. MentaLink builds on the idea of typed links, allowing authors to explicitly specify how the publications relate to each other, e.g., whether they share the problem statement, whether one publication is built on another or whether they contain contradictory results.
