Inspec (Web of Science) : author import issue

When we import reference data from Inspec into Zotero (plugin for Firefox), the authors' names are not included. The references in Zotero have no authors, even if there are authors in the reference in Inspec.
This issue occurs only in Inspec and not, for example, in Web of Science Core Collection, which uses the same search interface. Maybe this is due to the new Web of Science search interface.
  • I don't have access to INSPEC through WoS, so we'll need help to troubleshoot.
    Could you open an individual item, at the top select "Save to Other File Formats" and in the dialog "Other Reference Software" and "Full Record". Open the File with a text editor and paste the entire content here.

    AB Recent analyses of data from the NASA Kepler spacecraft have established
    that planets with radii within 25 per cent of the Earth's (R otimes) are
    commonplace throughout the Galaxy, orbiting at least 16.5 per cent of
    Sun-like stars. Because these studies were sensitive to the sizes of the
    planets but not their masses, the question remains whether these
    Earth-sized planets are indeed similar to the Earth in bulk composition.
    The smallest planets for which masses have been accurately determined
    are Kepler-10b (1.42R otimes) and Kepler-36b (1.49R otimes), which are
    both significantly larger than the Earth. Recently, the planet
    Kepler-78b was discovered and found to have a radius of only 1.16R
    otimes. Here we report that the mass of this planet is 1.86 Earth
    masses. The resulting mean density of the planet is 5.57 g cm -3, which
    is similar to that of the Earth and implies a composition of iron and

  • A translator fix is now up. Your version of Zotero will automatically update within 24hs, or you can update manually using the "Update Now" button in the "General" tab of the Zotero preferences.

    Please let us know how it works.
  • I'm sorry, but it still doesn't work. I updated many times, but nothing is changing. I'm sure that I use the last version of Zotero.
  • what happens if you select the record you posted above - from FN down to ER - copy it to the clipboard (ctrl+c or cmd+c on a Mac) and then select "import from Clipboard" in Zotero. Does that import?
  • It works! When I import from clipboard, all authors are OK. So, what's the issue?
  • I don't really know - but at least we know now that you have the up to date version of the translator. I'll try to come up with more troubleshooting. Maybe Aurimas has an idea, too.
  • I added some debugging code. Please update your translators via Preferences -> General -> Update Now, restart your browser, and provide a Debug ID for an attempt to import that item from Inspec
  • It still doesn't work. Here is the Debug ID : D111883733.
  • Thanks. That was never going to work, it was just to get more info.

    Dan, could you get us the ISI record from that debug, please? Since spaces might matter, maybe put in a gist?
  • thanks. That would explain it, of course, though I'm not sure I understand why we're getting an export without authors...
  • @adamsmith, The fields that are being exported to Zotero are determined by a filter, which is hard-coded in the translator. It's possible that INSPEC has some different names for its field values, which would explain this. I don't currently have a better solution than to just add more fields to the filter and hope that WoS does not break with "unknown" fields.

    @laureMEL, since neither of us has access to INSPEC, could you do the following:

    From the page where you exported the Full Record above, could you right-click the page and (assuming you're doing this in Firefox) select Save Page As... In the dialog that pops up, could you select "Web page, HTML only" as "Save as Type" then save it with whatever name you want. Finally, email the HTML file to That file should not include any personal information other than whatever is visible on the page.
  • @laureMEL sorry this took so long. Could you update your translators via Preferences -> General -> Update Now and try again? If it doesn't work, we would like a debug ID again.
  • It's still not OK. The debug ID is now : D986807992.

    AB We present an efficient analytical method to predict the maximum transit
    timing variations of a circumbinary exoplanet, given some basic
    parameters of the host binary. We derive an analytical model giving
    limits on the potential location of transits for coplanar planets
    orbiting eclipsing binaries, then test it against numerical N-body
    simulations of a distribution of binaries and planets. We also show the
    application of the analytic model to Kepler-16b, -34b and -35b. The
    resulting method is fast, efficient and is accurate to approximately 1
    per cent in predicting limits on possible times of transits over a 3-yr
    observing campaign. The model can easily be used to, for example, place
    constraints on transit timing while performing circumbinary planet
    searches on large data sets. It is adaptable to use in situations where
    some or many of the planet and binary parameters are unknown.

  • Sorry about that. Made a typo. Same instructions as before.
  • It works! Thank you very much.
