More DOIs for "Beak and feather disease virus"?[edit source]

Howdy - your addition of DOIs to WikiJournal_Preprints/Beak_and_feather_disease_virus was much appreciated :) I suppose you have an automated method there (similar to Citationbot on WP)? Could I ask you to either let me know what you used, or otherwise give the article another DOI go-over, now that I've finished with templating the references? Thank you! --Florian (Elmidae) (talk · contribs) 20:43, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Elmidae! I don't have any automated tools for DOIs, just the ol' manual search and find. But! I think they're all updated now. Let me know if there are any other articles in need of DOIs! —Collin (Bobamnertiopsis)t c 01:01, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
Great, thanks (also for expanding the journal abbreviations)! I didn't mean to ask you to do that manually... shouldn't wonder if there is something similar to Citationbot here, but I have not yet discovered it. --Florian (Elmidae) (talk · contribs) 14:13, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
@Elmidae: It's no problem, it's the wikignome task I most enjoy anywhere on this site! There's something soothing about being able to link knowledge like that. I do wonder if it would be possible to turn on(?) RefToolbar on Wikiversity like Wikipedia has, as that makes retrieving bibliographic info a lot easier. Evolution and evolvability, sorry to invoke you at random but do you know if this is a capability we have? —Collin (Bobamnertiopsis)t c 14:26, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
I think all we have is the standard citation addition system of visualeditor. It usually works fine when just pasting in a plaintext citation or journal article title (it uses zotero behind the scenes to find the doi and other metadata). For the ~5% that don't work, I've found either PubMed or G-Scholar will find them and I then copy the DOI or PMID into visualeditor. Sadly nothing automated through when someone writes something like this. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 00:06, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
