Bypass reference library when citing

Wouldn’t it be great if you could directly search on Pubmed/your preferred search engine when inserting citations rather than first having to insert them into your own library?


Yes, this is indeed in our plans. Here’s a rough idea of the design we have in mind (as you’ll have noticed, the design for the library feature is overall not quite finished yet):

As you can see, we also intend to add more search sources in.


In regards to the library design, it would be useful to display:

  • the name of the Journal;
  • the name of the first three authors

Agreed on the source (journal / book etc), this is an omission in the design. Also we’ll put the 2nd author if there’s 2 authors, but would you not be OK with just Foo et al (x) otherwise? This is pretty common in reference managers.

Great, thanks! Yes, it would be OK

The journal name should now be available there :slight_smile:
