Providing good publication metadata helps locating specific resources, discovering new relevant literature, and increasing publicity of the referenced resources. However, providing correct and complete metadata is a tedious task which needs knowledge of required fields, correct abbreviations and optional information.
For instance, if you select the reference type book, title, authors and year are marked in blue as required fields. Additionally, editors, the booktitle, volume, number, publisher, address, month, edition, url, note, series and abstract are shown. Fields such as pages or journal are hidden. In case that your BibTeX entry has text in fields that are neither required nor optional, the field is shown just the same instead of being ignored. This prevents you from loosing metadata because of mistaking the correct fields of a reference type.
