bibdoiadd.pl - add DOI numbers to papers in a given bib file
bibdoiadd [ -c config_file
- -c config_file
- Configuration file. If this file is absent, some defaults
are used. See below for its format.
- If 1 (default), add empty doi if a doi cannot be found.
This prevents repeated searches for the same entries if you add new
entries to the file. Calling "-e 0" suppresses this
- Force checking doi number even if one is present
- -o output
- Output file. If this option is not used, the name for the
output file is formed by adding "_doi" to the input file
The script reads a BibTeX file. It checks whether the entries have DOIs. If now,
tries to contact http://www.crossref.org to get the corresponding DOI. The
result is a BibTeX file with the fields "doi=..." added.
The name of the output file is either set by the -o
option or is derived
by adding the suffix "_doi" to the output file.
There are two options for making queries with Crossref: free account and paid
membership. In the first case you still must register with Crossref and are
limited to a small number of queries, see the agreement at
the second case you have a username and password, and can use them for
automatic queries. I am not sure whether the use of this script is allowed for
the free account holders. Anyway if you try to add DOI to a large number of
entries, you should register as a paid member.
The configuration file is mostly self-explanatory: it has comments (starting
with "#") and assginments in the form
$field = value ;
The important parameters are $mode ('free' or 'paid'), $email (for free users)
and $username & $password for paid members.
