Adding PMID and PMCID

I'm using the "Redox Biology" Citation style which was in the Zotero repository. I'd like to add PMID and PMCID to each entry of the bibliography while still using this citation style.

Some of my PMIDs and PMCIDs are attached to the entry in Zotero as notes others are embedded into the entry.

Thank you for any help you may offer.
  • Is this a requirement of the journal or just a personal thing you'd like to have?
  • It's a requirement
  • So, as an Elsevier journal the style you see is actually just a dependent style that links to elsevier-with-titles.csl.
    From the guidelines or recent papers I do not see that they include the PMID.

    Happy to get this added, but it needs to be an actual requirement. Please clarify.:)
  • From what I understand (from Author guideline Redox Bio): (I starred the specific text)
    Web references
    As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. ****Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given.**** Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

    I had to redo all of the citations and bibliography because the references from the original author were not "talking" to my library (see post from yesterday). His original references/bibliography included PMID and PMCID from Zotero. If it can't be added to the template generally is there a way I can add it to my template?

    The style already adds the DOI, which is the most future proof way of citing. It will never change. Just stick with the style that we have. Elsevier journals have the styles very much standardardised and actually also just say "use any style as long as it is consistent" as they do their own typesetting later on.

    This is how the citation looks for me. You see it includes the DOI and is also the way recent papers have it typeset.

  • Thank you for your help!

    Is there a way for me to edit this style to add PMIDs, as that is what the original author requested?

    <text variable="PMID"/> will do the trick.

    General how to:
  • But again, Elsevier’s typesetters very strongly prefer that you just use the DOI.
  • Thank you! Where in the code do I add this?
