Experiencing Difficulty[edit]

Hi Smith609. A few times while using the reference formatter, it has not provided the |title field for me, and I haven't noticed until I see the big error message in ref list. Is this an error on my side (user malfunction)? Also, a suggestion for a future version would be to have a choice between compressed (inline) citation template, or the expanded (multi-line). Some editors prefer the one-line version as it shows up differently in diffs. Cheers, DigitalC (talk) 06:25, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I guess that when it's not found the title, it's because it's not had enough information fed to it to deduce the reference which is being cited: or, the title can't be found in the usual places. If you give me a couple of examples I will try to make some suggestions.
More formats are coming – I'm very busy at the moment!
Thanks for your feedback, Smith609 Talk 19:57, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Try this for example, searching Google Scholar for "Continuing Health Education in Canada". With the 2 results listed, Wikify the first one. This will be the result: [1]DigitalC (talk) 08:05, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi, you'll be pleased to hear that new formats are now available. The problem with the missing title is one with the database - there's not much that the software can do, unfortunately. The best I can suggest is trying alternative search results where they are available. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 20:36, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Bot collaboration[edit]

Greetings, Martin. I run a bot named User:Polbot, and one of her current (in trial) tasks is to convert bare links to full citations by following the links and harvesting information. For instance, when it finds the link:

...it looks at the html at that link and harvests title and author information to get:

(The source code, in perl, is here.) So far it works with the New York Times, Time Magazine, and several other popular periodicals. However I haven't tackled scholarly journals yet, since there is a lot I don't know about, for instance, DOIs, and I see that others have already delved deeply into this area. Like, for instance, you! So I was hoping I could ask for some help.

Given a link to a rated journal, such as http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7566020, is there a straightforward-ish way to get the DOI, authors, etc., without plowing through the html for the data in different ways for different publications? (I have considered, by the way, submitting the URL to Google scholar search, as in http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov%2Fpubmed%2F7566020, then parsing the html of the google page for the id ("ZazTb4xrtZ4J", whatever that is), and then submitting this to your tool... but there are problems with this strategy. Your tool loads some of the information in script after the page loads, making it difficult to harvest... and besides, I figure there must be a more direct way.) Any feedback or guidance would be most appreciated. – Quadell (talk) 03:18, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

PMID & PMC lookup broken[edit]

Hi Smith. When I enter PMIDs or PMCIDs into the URF, it doens't do anything. It looks up, finishes, and gives me a blank output. I see a lot of "invalid argument supplied" errors at the bottom of the page. Can you take al look at this when you get a chance? I rely heavily on this tool when citing, it's an incredible time saver for PMID referencing. Thanks for writing it! Chaldor (talk) 00:12, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh gosh, I wonder how I've broken that... I'll take a look when I get the chance, which will hopefully be in the next couple of weeks. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 12:46, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure if you've gotten around to it, but the PMID lookup is still broken. I tried PMID 5484812 and 19290931. Thanks. Temporal User (Talk) 20:53, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Using Google Scholar's BibTeX with URF[edit]

Hello, first of all, let me say ('cause I've never done it) that I have come to appreciate these little tools of your's for formatting references.

As for the section heading, I noticed that URF seems to interpret (at least sometimes) BibTeX reference names like aboitiz1992fch as being author=aboitiz, year=1992, journal=fch. At least the latter is problematic: When I paste complete BibTeX information like

 {@article{aboitiz1992fch,
 title={{Fiber composition of the human corpus callosum}},
 author={Aboitiz, F. and Scheibel, A.B. and Fisher, R.S. and Zaidel, E.},
 journal={Brain Res},
 volume={598},
 number={1-2},
 pages={143--153},
 year={1992}
 }, 

URF turns this into <ref name=Aboitiz1992>{{citation | author = Aboitiz, F.; Scheibel, A. B.; Fisher, R. S.; Zaidel, E. | year = 1992 | title = Fiber composition of the human corpus callosum}} | journal = fch | volume = 598 | pages = 1–2 }}</ref> , while the BibTeX conversion tool gets it right as <ref name=Aboitiz1992>{{cite journal | author = Aboitiz, F. | coauthors = Scheibel, A.B.; Fisher, R.S.; Zaidel, E. | year = 1992 | title = Fiber composition of the human corpus callosum | journal = Brain Res | volume = 598 | issue = 1-2 | pages = 143–153 | doi = 10.1016/0006-8993(92)90178-C }}</ref> .

I also noticed that the Scholar tool is currently not working, but I assume that you are aware of that. Thanks and cheers, Mietchen (talk) 04:59, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I hadn't thought to make the URF recognise bibtex. I'll get on to that when I get time. Also, note the updated link for the scholar search, http://toolserver.org/~verisimilus/Scholar/. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 12:45, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Bug report in experimental citation interpreter[edit]

Thought I would leave you a failure report from a free text citation, in case it helps you improve that marvellous "complete citation" box.

I pasted:

The Place of Y Gododdin in the History of Scotland’, in Celtic Connections: Proceedings of the Tenth International Congress of Celtic Studies, Vol. 1. Language, Literature, History, Culture, ed. R.Black, W. Gillies, R. Ó Maolalaigh (East Linton: Tuckwell Press, 1999), pp. 199–210.

I got:

<ref name=Koch1999>{{citation
 | author = Koch, John T. 'The Place of; Gododdin, Y.; Language, Literature; Ed. R.black, W. Gillies
 | year = 1999
 | title = In the History of Scotland
 | journal = Celtic Connections: Proceedings of the Tenth International Congress of Celtic Studies
 | volume = 1
 | pages = 199–210
}}</ref>

which, to be honest, is darn close but no cigar.

Anyway, great work on the formatter and search tool: I use it all the time.

hyphenating ISBN[edit]

Should the ISBN be automatically reformatted with hyphenation? Instructions are here:

Multiple OCLC entries[edit]

The OCLC field can only properly link to one number. Frequently, multiple numbers are found (for example, Lewis, edited by James; Sesay, Amadu (2002), Korea and globalization, London: RoutledgeCurzon, ISBN 0-7007-1512-6, OCLC 46908525 50074837 ). The OCLC link would work as either 46908525 or 50074837. I don't know whether it would be better to only use one of the OCLC numbers or to change the various citation templates so that they formatted multiple OCLC numbers as separate links like this:

Lewis, edited by James; Sesay, Amadu (2002), Korea and globalization, London: RoutledgeCurzon, ISBN 0-7007-1512-6, OCLC 46908525 50074837

Should generate date = instead of month =[edit]

citation no longer recognizes month =

instead, it prefers date = month year —Preceding unsigned comment added by Askmar (talkcontribs) 22:42, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Journal and title messed up from pasted citation[edit]

I just tried

Gallup GG Jr (1970) Chimpanzees: self-recognition. Science 167: 86–87 , 

and the output included the line

journal = Chimpanzees: self-recognition. Science 167:

which is obviously buggy. Thanks, Mietchen (talk) 22:37, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Google is rejecting searches today[edit]

Several searches which worked previously are no longer working for me:

Google displays a page with a somewhat odd message:

Do you know what this is about? --Teratornis (talk) 23:40, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

It's probably being used too much - because the Google interface is passed through the toolserver, Google thinks that all uses are coming from one machine and blocks it in case it's part of a Denial of Service attack. Try again tomorrow. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 01:29, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Problem with title, authors, issue, pages, italics[edit]

Hi, Martin. I tried DOI 10.1016/S0140-6736(03)14117-7 and got Garcia, H. (2003), "Cysticercosis", The Lancet 362: 547, doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(03)14117-7 . However a correct result is García, H.H., Gonzalez, A.E., Evans, C.A.W., and Gilman, R.H. (August 2003). "Taenia solium cysticercosis". The Lancet 362 (9383): 547–556. doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(03)14117-7. . I guess the italics are an unsolvable issue, but I suggest the authors, title, issue and page numbers need attention. --Philcha (talk) 08:15, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up; as far as I can see these omissions are the result of the publisher's database being incomplete, and cannot be readily resolved. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 17:13, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Error caused by unusual characters in ref name[edit]

Hi Smith609,

I suspect this error has more to do with Wikipedia than your tool, but I thought I'd let you know in case you could easily program a workaround. After manually entering "Cristina Sánchez-Martínez and José Pérez-Martín" in the authors field, the tool generated <ref name=Sánchez-martínez2001>. So far so good, but when I used <ref name=Sánchez-martínez2001/> in an article I got a big red "Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no content must have a name." I avoided the error by changing the refname [1]. From playing around a little, it seems both the á and the í are individually sufficient to cause the error. Perhaps your tool could generate ref names with the form <ref name=Sanchez-martinez2001> (i.e. without the accents) instead? That would be easier for editors to type, too. I've no idea how difficult this would be, just thought I'd suggest it. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 14:59, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Good idea. I don't have toolserver access at the moment, but will implement it when I do. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 15:37, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

It's not clear how I add this to the WAS entry.

Pascin727 (talk) 14:46, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi, there are two things you can do; the first is to place the code in-line, after the fact it backs up. You can the code {{reflist}} to the references setion: this will make the references show up. The second alternative is to remove the code <ref name=Paone1996> and </ref> from the citation you have copied in. I have made both changes to the article (See them here); feel free to experiment further in the Sandbox. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 23:23, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Difficult case: "Special Papers" citation[edit]

I am trying to work out how to build a citation for a difficult (but not uncommon) case of a work contained in another work. (For specific case at hand, Google for "Vogt" and "Origin of the Bermuda volcanoes"; this will be found in the publication "Plates, Plumes, and Planetary Processes". Which sort of looks like a book, but is specifically a"Special Paper" - a recurring but non-periodic publication of the GSA, in this case Special Paper 430. (Other scientific organizations also publish "Special Papers".) The traditional practice is to cite these as <title> in <work>, much like an encyclopedia article, and which is reasonably well accomodated using the citation template's "contribution" parameters. (Clumsy, but works.)

I was hoping the Google Scholar Wikify function might be of use in this regard, but that led to the Universal Reference Formatter, which failed, and rather sadly. I was hoping that the URF might be developed (a "small matter of programming". :-) enough to handle "contributions", but no luck. Worse, it got confused parsing the reference (perhaps complications with what is coming from Google?), and did some nonsensical things like putting the title of the work ("Plates, Plumes...") in as the name of a journal (which it is not), and leaving out the editors. It also put the paper number ("430") in as a volume number (which I think actually makes sense, but is contrary to normal practice). Using the DOI (which I would think should access the most complete, most authoritative information on this item) provided essentially the markup.

Building citations manually is okay for me. But I think it would add greatly to the URF's usefulness if it could more elagantly handle these cases. J. Johnson (talk) 20:27, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

It's in the pipeline - I'll use this case as an example when I get the chance to improve the code. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 23:22, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Trouble with square brackets in url[edit]

I'm having trouble with the url in a ref. I tried the following[3] but the display is disrupted by the [AU] part of the url and did not link to the relevant site. I tried using different brackets and a nowiki on the url but that didn't work either.

Hi Martin, I recently noticed that the author names are heavily scrambled. For instance, the search term

Thanks for working on this, Martin. The co-authors seem to be back now but the ordering of the lines in the output is rather strange and, more importantly, the doi is not found for some papers ( try "NMR measurements of permafrost: unfrozen water assay, pore-scale distribution of ice") or, if the doi is pasted into the search mask, the rest of the metadata can not be found (try "10.1016/j.coldregions.2004.12.002"; the same paper). Daniel Mietchen (talk) 08:31, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh dear, I wonder what I've done - it looks like I've introduced an error into one of the algorithms I use, which is causing it to silently exit. Investigation will follow when I have time... Meanwhile, you could allow a bot to do the completing for you by including {{cite doi|10.1016/j.coldregions.2004.12.002}} in the article. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 12:57, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, using the doi template is a good idea but when I just tried it, the co-author was gone again. Daniel Mietchen (talk) 11:41, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Standardizing the name attribute of the ref tag[edit]

Please standardize the name attribute. Currently, if a long wiki article cites a journal or website article more than once, each one will become a unique entry in the references. As done by the diberri tool, consider the following for the name value:

  • pmid
  • doi
  • isbn

etc,

For example:

<ref name="pmid18347878">{{cite journal |author=Simel DL ''et al.'' |title=The STARD Statement for Reporting Diagnostic Accuracy Studies: Application to the History and Physical Examination |journal=J Gen Intern Med |volume=23 |pages=768–74 |year=2008 |pmid=18347878 |doi=10.1007/s11606-008-0583-3 |url=http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11606-008-0583-3 |issn=}}</ref>

or, in this example, the user can append a page number or chapter title to the isbn:

<ref name="isbn0-409-90077-X-The Chest Examination">{{cite book |author= |authorlink= |editor=Walker HK, Hall WD, Hurst JW |others= |title=Clinical methods: the history, physical, and laboratory examinations |edition=3rd |language=English |publisher=Butterworths |location=London |year=1990 |origyear= |pages= |quote= |isbn=0-409-90077-X |oclc= |doi= |url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bookshelf/br.fcgi?book=cm|chapter=The Chest Examination|chapterurl=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bookshelf/br.fcgi?book=cm&part=A1403 |accessdate=|id={{LCC|RC71 .C63}} }} [http://lccn.loc.gov/87013782 Library of Congress]</ref>

With this method, articles will only be inserted once into the bibliography. - Badgettrg (talk) 16:43, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I much prefer the human-readable 'AuthorYear' format for a reference name. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 21:31, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
AuthorYear is not a reliably unique string. - Badgettrg (talk) 12:45, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Simply append an "a" or "b" if there are more than one "Smith2000". Much better than ISBN/PMID/etc... Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 04:37, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Mathematical Reviews BibTeX/Google Scholar references for mathematical papers[edit]

Putting in the BibTex output of a Mathematical Reviews entry into the "complete citation" box is not very successful: the title is cut off, and in any case there is no need to carry the information about the MR reviewer (who then appears as the second author). However, Google Scholar appears to include all the papers covered by MR, so I am quite happy to use that instead.

Thanks Smith609 !

The output was very helpful to me, but I thought I ought to pass it onto you as you requested, as it is a little garbled and needed some manual edits.

CrossRef[edit]

Where should I go to enquire about the uptime of Cite.php? "Trying to expand citation info using CrossRef..." does not work for me (when for example, I use the DOI 10.1145/347194.347203 , the expansion never completes.) --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 11:16, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

I've not maintained this tool for a while because it's easier to do this all within Wikipedia. Visit your user preferences and activate "Citation expander", under "Editing gadgets"; then you can type {{cite journal | doi = 10.1145/347194.347203 }} and expand it in the page.

Universal Reference Formatter still working?[edit]
