I've used Endnote's extension for Chrome which, although imperfect, gets the job done, especially with online sources. In FireFox, BibItNow failed to give me anything close to a usable RIS citation for websites.

I just need to figure out a way to add/customize reference styles.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoHi.
Thanks for the feedback. I am thinking about extending the format string system used for the link at the popup bottom to define custom styles. With the newly added support for regular expressions, it should be flexible enough to produce citation styles.
Thanks for the suggestion.

- by Firefox user 14401633, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is great. Super convenient! I use it all the time when collecting references now. Saves time not having to look around for a (sometimes nonexistent) "export citation" button.

In case something doesn't work one gets support very fast and a fix is sent out soon after. As a theoretical physicists, makes my everyday work notably easier.
- by Firefox user 13944980, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5In general this is a great add on. I'm using EndNote X7.8, and the RIS format apparently is not working properly. I don't know if there is something missing from EndNote itself though, as I'm not using the latest version (I don't want to upgrade before finishing my thesis). Excellent approach to disentangle the citation hassle, especially for online references.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThanks for letting me know! I will look into the EndNote problem asap (I am currently working on custom bibkey format strings, which take some time). Mendeley so far had no problem with the RIS output, but things might have changed.
EDIT: Fixed the problem. It seems like Endnote is stricter about the spacing between identifier and the hyphen. It should work in the next version which comes out the end of this week.
- by Firefox user 13923710, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5While this has made citation much easier, I wish the DOI would work consistently. I often have to go back and add information because dynamic citations aren't populating.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThanks.
Unfortunately, websites change from time to time, breaking some of the site adjusters (there is no big team behind this, so I cannot follow every change happening out there at the publisher's websites). I am currently in a control pass on dynamic citation functionality. You can always suggest/report websites to me that aren't working properly, and I see to it as soon as real life work permits. Go to the github or just contact me by email if you wish.
