Add books via ISBN

resolved

#1

The search online feature works well to add papers via DOI etc. but it would be great to see the ability to add books via ISBN, especially since the Paperpile extension doesn’t work on most publishers’ websites.

Thanks! Mark

That should work already. You can put in a ISBN in the search box under “Add papers”.

We are working on some big improvements behind the scenes for book handling so books are not treated as second class citizens compared to journal articles. So ISBN search should only get more reliable in the future.

Thanks! I tried a few more examples and they seem to work fine - I guess I was just unlucky last time :slight_smile:
