$ cite --style iso690-author-date-en https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRev.48.73

EINSTEIN, A. and ROSEN, N., 1935, The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity. Physical Review [online]. 1 July 1935. Vol. 48, no. 1, p. 73–77. DOI 10.1103/physrev.48.73. Available from: http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRev.48.73

To generate a BibTeX entry with a shortdoi-based unique key use --bibtex or -b

$ cite --bibtex https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRev.48.73

The entry's key is made of name, year and short DOI of the item.

To get Citeproc-JSON use --json or -j.

Where the journals provide the DOI in their website's metadata it is also possible to use the article website URL:

$ cite https://journals.aps.org/pr/abstract/10.1103/PhysRev.48.73

Einstein, A., & Rosen, N. (1935). The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity. Physical Review, 48(1), 73–77. doi:10.1103/physrev.48.73

To add to an entry to an existing BibTex file:

cite --bibtex https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRev.48.73 >> bibliography.bib
