Get a well-formatted, journal-abbreviated BibTeX string from a DOI:

julia> using DOI2BibTeX
julia> doi = "10.1103/PhysRevLett.45.494"
julia> doi2bib(doi)
  title = {New Method for High-Accuracy Determination of the Fine-Structure Constant Based on Quantized Hall Resistance},
  volume = {45},
  doi = {10.1103/physrevlett.45.494},
  number = {6},
  journal = {Phys. Rev. Lett.},
  author = {Klitzing, K. v. and Dorda, G. and Pepper, M.},
  year = {1980},
  pages = {494497}

The BibTeX entry is obtained from a GET request to, following the approach described here.

arXiv BibTeX

It is also possible to obtain an BibTeX entry associated with an arXiv identifier:

julia> using DOI2BibTeX
julia> arxiv = "arxiv:1710.10324"
julia> arxiv2bib(arxiv)
  title = {Crystal Graph Convolutional Neural Networks for an Accurate and Interpretable Prediction of Material Properties},
  author = {Tian Xie and Jeffrey C. Grossman},
  year = {2018},
  eprint = {1710.10324},
  archivePrefix = {arXiv},
  primaryClass = {cond-mat.mtrl-sci}

Journal abbreviations

Journal titles returned by doi2bib are automatically abbreviated using the List of Title Word Abbreviations (disable by setting the abbreviate keyword argument of doi2bib to false).

The functionality is also separately accessible via the exported function journal_abbreviation:

julia> journal_abbreviation("Physical Review Letters")
"Phys. Rev. Lett."

julia> journal_abbreviation("Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters")
"J. Phys. Chem. Lett."

julia> journal_abbreviation("npj Quantum Materials")
"npj Quantum Mater."


The package is registered in Julia's General registry and can be installed from the pkg> prompt:
