Append ' - Food Science and Technology' for the publication title of 'LWT'

hi all,

when the article in the journal LWT was added to Zotero, the publication title should be LWT - Food Science and Technology instead of LWT, and the - Food Science and Technology has to be appended after the web import, is there a solution to append it automatically when import from the homepage of the article? Possible modification of the sciencedirect translator?

An example article homepage:
  • That's what they have in the metadata both in the RIS (AU - Chen, Lingyun
    JO - LWT
    SP - 113162
    PY - 2022
    ) and in the page metadata (<meta name="citation_journal_title" content="LWT" />)
    I don't think we'd be inclined to hard-code this into the translator. I'm also not sure adding the subtitle is unambiguously correct.

    Yes, it is weird, also in the first page of article, it shows LWT sometimes, and LWT - Food Science and Technology other times. However, both mini image in top right corner show LWT - Food Science and Technology, and Lebensmittel-Wissenschaft und -Technologie- Food Science and Technology or LWT - Food Science and Technology in the reference list.

    I contacted elsevier, and the journal manager replied:

    Thank you for your e-mail and for bringing this to our attention.

    I would like to let know that the LWT’s exact name is “LWT - Food Science and Technology”.

    For more details, please refer to the journal website:

    I will inform the production team to update the title on the template so that all papers will have the exact name in future.

    Should you need any assistance, please let me know.

    Best regards,
