Abstract: We present a working prototype of YouASTRO (, a web-based BibTeX-compliant reference management software (RMS) for astrophysical papers in the SAO/NASA ADS database. It also includes as a main feature the concept of distributed paper comments and ratings. In this paper we introduce the main characteristics of the web application, and we will briefly discuss what could be the advantages and drawbacks of such a system being widely adopted by the astrophysical community for its scientific literature.
