Last year, MathOverflow has added a pretty nifty "Insert citation" button to the markdown editor, which is very handy for inserting links to (mathematical) papers or books one wants to mention in their question or answer.

Would it be possible to have it activated at SciComp.SE as well, or is that something too specific for MO (which is still not 100% integrated into the SE network, as far as I know)?

MathOverflow is pretty well integrated at this point. I've enabled the fancier citation option on Computational Science:

Fancy citations

I notice the textbox overflows the popup. I'll check with a designer to see if we can get that fixed.

I also added the link for including citations in answers:

Notice something new? ;-)
