The plugin add a shortcode in order to link a paper using its doi code. You can also use an other shortcode to resolve doi code and publish a full citation apa formatted. It is also a shortcode for manual citations.
Using the standard for doi link, the plugin introduce a shortcode in order to create a link to a paper provided by doi.
How to use the shortcode:
[ctdoi code=”…”]Title of the paper[/doi]
The plugin send the doi code to Crossref Metadata Search, get the information and publish a full citation in apa standard with the shortcode [ctdoiresolve …].
How to use the shortcode:
There are also three optional parameters:
[ctdoiresolve code=”…” arxiv=”…”]
if the paper has an arXiv version
[ctdoiresolve code=”…” pdfurl=”…”]
if the paper has a free pdf version
[ctdoiresolve code=”…” archiveurl=”…”]
if the paper has a free version on archive.org
There’s also a shortcode for manual citations, [paperdata …]. You can use it with the following syntax:
[paperdata auth=”author/s name/s” year=”…” title=”…” journal=”…” vol=”…” issue=”…” pages=”…” code=”…”]
You can also use the arxiv, pdfurl, archiveurl parameters.
You can style citations adding in your css theme the class “paperdata”.
