bibdoiadd.pl - add DOI numbers to papers in a given bib file


bibdoiadd [-c config_file] [-f] [-o output] bib_file


-c config_file
Configuration file. If this file is absent, some defaults are used. See below for
its format.

-f 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
"http://www.crossref.org/01company/free_services_agreement.html". In 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.


bibdoiadd -c bibdoiadd.cfg citations.bib > result.bib
bibdoiadd -c bibdoiadd.cfg citations.bib -o result.bib
