    Hello,

    depending on the type of publication (journal article, book,...) some fields may be required, optionally useful or even quite senseless. It would be great, if your interface could react depending on the choice of publication the user adds.

    Or did I simply overlook an existing feature..?

    Regards, Tim.

      you didn't overlook an existing feature.

      Thanks for the request! This has been requested quite a few times, and I agree that it would greatly help the user to add or edit data.

      Unfortunately, I cannot tell you if/when anything like this gets implemented. But you can be assured that it's on our radar.

      Thanks again, Matthias
