    Hi Matthias,

    Although I think a batch Endnote import filter is the most pressing new feature right now (we have a couple of thousand records in endnote), I just thought I would also mention Web of Science - it seems to be the database of choice at my institution, over CSA for some reason. Anyway, just a suggestion for the future, as I noticed it wasn't in the list in your readme file. Sorry for bugging you yet again.

    Thanks again,

    Adrian

      Hi Adrian,

      unfortunately, our institution/university has no access to ISI Web of Science, so I have no clue how their data format looks like.

      It would be helpful if you (or somebody else with access to WoS) could zip some representative records and mail them to me. The example records should cover all sorts of publication types, like journal articles, book chapters, whole books, proceedings, thesis works, etc.

      As an alternative, do you know, if Thomson offers a trial account to WoS?

      Thanks for your help, Matthias

      Adrian and Matthias,

      I BELIEVE that WoS uses the same ISI format that is used in endnote.  Free filters do exist, as do open source converters to, for example, bibtex.

      Here is a singele example.  It is a simple teo author journal article, but includes all (optional) fields.   I imagine the the CSA filter could be adapted.  Please note that WoS only contains journal articles.

      Hi Rick,

      thanks for the info. Could you send me some example records (ten or more) via email, so that white space is preserved.

      Thanks for your help!

      Best regards, Matthias

        Matthias,

        I just sent 10 records as attachments with a long description to info@refbase.net.  Please let me know if anything is unclear.

        Thanks very much Rick - sorry for my silence on this - have been away for a few days. Let me know if there is anything else that you need Matthias,

        Adrian

      Great, thanks!

      This will help me a lot to get started with any WoS import functionality.

      Regards, Matthias

      So what's the current status of this??

      I'd be very interested in any such ISI WoS script or like that can handle these kind of imports. I don't care if it is an ugly hack as long as it works! Otherwise I might need (and I don't want to) make my own screen scraper for ISI citations.

      Please let me know...

      Admittedly, nothing has happend since then. There were many other things that had priority.

      However, as outlined before/elsewhere, we consider import from WoS, PubMed (and others) as very important. Speaking of a hack, 'import_csa.php' could be adopted. But ideally, import from WoS/PubMed would be provided via bibutils (isi2xml/med2xml) and a universal MODS XML importer.

      So do we have a MODS XML importer?
      In fact I am working on a script to extract XML from CrossRef that needs to get imported to Refbase...

      So how does that isi2xml work. What format of easy are we talking about here. You can export easy references in several ways, but I was interested in getting something that uses the information directly from the HTML code for each ISI reference, thus skipping the export step.

      Any ideas?

      Ok, I figured out isi2xml. And I can extract some of the XML items. But how do I get this information into Refbase? I thought that perhaps I could create some kind of POST to link it with the "Add Record" page. (I.e. sending the data directly to that page.) Do you have some kind of template?

      Thanks,

      -joachim-
