EBSCO, DOIs and Journal Abbr, pdfs
In EBSCO, I am noticed that Zotero fills the Journal Abbr field if I am using MEDLINE but leaves the DOI field blank. Conversely, it fills the DOI field but leaves the Journal Abbr field blank if I am using Psycinfo. I clicked the checkbox for automatically attach associated pdf, but with both MEDLINE and Psycinfo, Zotero adds a tag that includes a useless accession number but no pdf. Is there a way around these problems?
I'll try to see about PDF attachments-- there might be some database-specific tweaks we need to work out.
PDFs - the problem with EBSCO - like an increasing number of publishers - is that they don't actually allow pdf download. They embed the pdf in a page. ajlyon has mentioned in the past that it might be possible for Zotero to get these types of pdfs, but currently we're not getting pdfs for any of the sites that do that - Wiley, Cambridge U press, EBSCO...(there are some - like Sage - which embed by default but still have a download link - those work).
Of the large databases, JSTOR most reliably attaches pdfs (though you have to manually download one first to OK their copyright rules).
Please go to http://github.com/ajlyon/translators/raw/master/EBSCOhost.js and save the file to the translators directory of your Zotero data directory (http://www.zotero.org/support/zotero_data).
It should start working. If this works for you, please post here so that I can submit this change to be pushed to all users.
