Bing academic search has been beta, and its search feature is really cool and very easy to use. It will be wonderful that Bibdesk can import bibtex directly from the search results.

It is stated that bing has the bibtex information on the search result page. I have tried and the bibtex information is under the linked page of the search result, and it can be exposed by clicking the "Export" button besides the title. I hope it will be not very difficult to extract it.

Thanks for the wonderful work!

    It does not look like we could. First of all, the reference is very indirect, through a lot of javascript functions and special divs. But the most problematic one is that the bibtex they offer is invalid.

    Found the form at for the link to the bibtex. Fortunately we can fix the buggy bibtex they offer. So this will be added for the next release.
