Can't get DOI and ISBN

Hi, this is probably a FAQ but… here I am.

Context :
JabRef 4.3.1
Linux 4.9.0-9-amd64 amd64
Java 1.8.0_201

I am following : https://help.jabref.org/en/GetBibTeXDataFromDOI

but I always get some message (french) that means it’s enable to find it.

i.e : 978-2-8195-02746

I am probably missing something.

So help appreciated. Jacques

Hi,

ISBN does not always find data. JabRef uses ebook.de and this site https://bibtex.chimbori.com/
If it doesn’t find data, you can try out http://www.ottobib.com/

DOI normally should always work.

Thanks Christoph. Will make it a try. Just a noob question : where under Debian/Linux should I add http://www.ottobib.com/ as new search engine ?

Btw chimbori looks to have problems with Amazon.

It’s not possible to add extra search engines to JabRef, because some need special treatment to get the results etc.
Therefore we need to implement it in JabRef. There is an issue for collecting all fetcher wishes
