Can Paperpile import bibtex on Web by setting URL?

Mendeley and Zotero have web importer by setting URL.
Mendeley can import by the following URL.
Zotero can import by the following URL.

Is there a similar web importer in Paperpile?

Thanks for the query, @Keiji. While we’re not able to import bibtex from that kind of URL / page, you can paste the bib code directly to your library via Add Papers > Add Manually:

Another alternative would be to download a .bib file to then upload to Paperpile. That being said, it would certainly make sense for our extension / web importer to be able to catch this sort of information, so I’m adding the feedback to our internal tracker for the team to consider. An updated version of the extension is currently being worked on.

At that time, I hope to add export button to Paperpile.


I published Lead2Amazon for (Search-Output System for

Even now, Lead2Amazon enables to output BibTeX and RIS format for citing references.

As I wrote in the top page, I will update Lead2Amazon such as “exporting Bibtex information to Mendley or Zotero” using their web-importers. If Paperpile publishes a web-importer, please let me know.

If Paperpile publishes a web importer by specifying URL, I will add export button in Lead2Amazon.
