Import formatted references in Papers 3 for Mac

In Papers 3 for Mac you can now import a reference from its formatted citation. You can do this by two ways, described below

  • Simply go to ‘File>New Paper>From Reference...’ and paste in the formatted citation. This will then fetch all the related metadata to this article.

  • You can do the same by pasting the citation into the blank title field of a 'new paper’. This will then suggest matches so you can choose the correct one. In this case, if the PDF is available it will automatically be imported.
