DOI recognition fails, Firefox

Postby erik.hansen » 2011-01-13 22:38

System information: [ Citavi Version 3.0.1, Windows 7, English, Firefox 3.x, MS Office 2007, Acrobat 9 ]

Dear all,

in some scientific databases, such as the ScienceDirect (management literature etc) under the DOI of articles is not recognised, this is, there is no citavi icon for quick import. Probably there are some difficulties on the one or other website.
I tried to get around by selecting the DOI in firefox and then use right mous button for the Citavi context menu - however, there is no feature to use the selected text as DOI import. This could be added.

Thank you

Dear Erik,

ScienceDirect places the DOI in a hyperlink. Unfortunately, if we were to place the Picker icon in the link, it would break the link, so the Picker never inserts its icon into links (nor tables, for similar reasons).

You can search ScienceDirect directly from Citavi, or you can copy the DOI to the Clipboard and then use the Retrieve feature to automatically fetch the bibliographic information.
