Hi,
I am adding references using the citation style for the journal: Genome announcements. That journal requires DOI accessions to be added to the end of the reference. However the CSL that is available in papers 3 does not include the DOI for my references.

to be clear:
the style produced this reference:
1. Meier-Kolthoff JP, Auch AF, Klenk H-P, Göker M. 2013. Genome sequence-based species delimitation with confidence intervals and improved distance functions. BMC Bioinformatics 14:60.

it should be:
1. Meier-Kolthoff JP, Auch AF, Klenk H-P, Göker M. 2013. Genome sequence-based species delimitation with confidence intervals and improved distance functions. BMC Bioinformatics 14:60. 10.1073/pnas.0906412106

How can I fix this in papers3 for this style?

    Hi

    The DOI will be included as part of the reference style you are using and we are not able to edit or write new styles for you. The styles in Papers come directly from the official CSL repository.

    The CSL Library currently has nearly 7000 styles, but there are still a number of journals not represented. However, Papers regularly updates when new styles are added or amended in the repository.

    All the styles available with Papers are listed in the style browser that you can access as follows:

    • Go into the Papers Preferences…Citations
    • Click on the popup menu 'Favorite Styles' and select 'More Styles...'
    • This will open the Style Browser

    Note that many journals actually point in their instructions to authors to some generic standard styles like 'Vancouver', 'APA' or 'Chicago' to be used for their publications. That's often a good way to get the style you want.

    We also made it possible to overwrite the styles present in Papers, or to add more styles, by dragging and dropping an .csl file directly into the Papers app. This however requires you to edit the XML files that are used by CSL, and to read the CSL specifications. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you are comfortable with XML and have a good text editor like TextMate or similar, then it's not out of reach. The advantage of CSL is that it is used by other applications, it has been developed in the open by many others before Papers adopted it, and there is a lot of material online about it.

    There is also a CSL visual editor, which is especially useful for editing an existing style to match your needs, which you can find here:

    http://editor.citationstyles.org/about/

    The manual on how to use it can be found here:

    User guide for the CSL Editor

    If you do write your own style, or need to add a style from a repository that has not yet updated in Papers, our Knowledge Base article has full instructions which you may find useful:

    Below are some other links you may find of use:

    Here is the CSL reference:

    http://citationstyles.org/downloads/specification.html

    And here are the main repositories for CSL stylesheets:

    http://www.zotero.org/styles
    https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles

    Please note that the above links, including the style editor, are not Papers specific. If you use their forums for advice they will only be able to help you with the csl styles and not their integration with Papers. Instructions for adding styles to Papers can be found in the knowledge base article above.

    Best Wishes,
    Ayie
