Reference import problem with author names containing accented letters

Hi,

I experienced a curious problem with Biblioscape 10 when I imported references with author names containing accented letters. I usually use DOI numbers to capture references (Quick Add feature) and I noted that in some cases, although the remaining fields of the reference are properly imported, the authors field contains truncated list of authors when author names contain accented letters.

E.g.

Using DOI number 10.1016/j.bcp.2008.05.011 and Quick Add this reference will have the authors name in the following format:

P\'erez-Torras, Sandra; Garc\'\ia-Manteiga, Jos\'e; Mercad\'e

The complete list of authors should be as follows:

Pérez-Torras, Sandra; García-Manteiga, José; Mercadéd, Elena; Casado, F. Javier; Carbó, Neus; Pastor-Anglada, Marçal; Mazo, Adela

(Otherwise, as I noted the remaining fields of the reference are properly imported)

There are two issues with this problem: 1. truncation of the authors list, 2. inappropriate import of accented letters (e.g. \'\i instead of acute accented i).

Any hint, how to solve this problem?

Best wishes,

Lajos

Hi,

Does anybody know the solution of this problem?

Thanks,

The "}," after "Mercad{\'e"

The "}," after "Mercad{\'e" makes Biblioscape think it is the end of the Authors field and caused the truncation. I will research how we can fix this problem. We also need to come up with a list for auto-replacement. You can help us with the list. For example: {\'e} to é

Hi, Thanks for your reply.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. So far I corrected these issues manually and I encountered this problem during import using the Quick add feature.

In version 11, the import

In version 11, the import filter for BibTeX will be improved to handle these problems.
