KP raised a very important point in his reply to Isra´s comment on the Madrid VL outbreak by saying that:

communications do not constitute a formal scientific publication, but do help
spread the information more quickly to the scientific community."
For the reasons given by KP Leish-L communications are not eligible as citations in formal publications. The idea behind the messages is simply to make

This brings me to question the acceptability of web-links as sources of information in dissertations, theses and papers.
With best wishes
