Project description

cite

Test PyPI

Installation

pip install cite

Usage

Prints citation from DOIs or URLs of journal articles which provide DOIs in their metadata.

$ cite https://doi.org/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 generate a BibTeX entry with a shortdoi-based unique key use

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

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

Other output formats are supported, e.g. citeproc-json

$ cite --format citeproc-json https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRev.48.73 doi:10.1002/andp.19053221004

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

For the full list of options, see

$ cite --help

Uses habanero and the Crossref API (https://www.crossref.org/) as well as Pybtex.
