Available for beta testing: Create parent items by identifier

edited 14 days ago
In the latest Zotero beta, we've extended Create Parent Item to prompt for an identifier (DOI, ISBN, PMID, arXiv ID) to use to retrieve metadata for the new parent item, making it easier to create a parent item when metadata can't be retrieved automatically for a PDF. If the publication doesn't have an identifier, you can still create an empty item and enter the data manually.

This feature will be included in Zotero 5.0.94.

(We're also working on metadata updating for existing items, but that will be a separate feature.)
