DESIR CodeSprint

As partners in the European project DESIR we will participate in the DESIR CodeSprint which will take place in Berlin from July 31 to August 2. Within our task Import and export of bibliographical data from BibSonomy and ingest in managed collections a demonstrator will be implemented that showcases interaction between BibSonomy and Grobid and provides a simple tool for managing bibliographic metadata. The registration for the CodeSprint is still open - so if you are able to visit Berlin and interested in programming together with other experts (mainly in Python), register and you can meet a part of the BibSonomy team at the end of July in Berlin.

We are looking forward to the CodeSprint!

HTTP access disabled

Today we disabled our HTTP access as announced last year. This implies that every request is now encrypted by default using TSL (also known as HTTPS) to protect your privacy. We now redirect all non-encrypted HTTP traffic to the corresponding HTTPS page (using a HTTP 301 response).

Some plugins and extensions that are using the REST API might have problems with the redirects. Please try to update the plugin or extension. If you still have problems with the plugin or extension, please contact us via email or Twitter.

Happy secure tagging,

Release 3.8.6 + Java-REST-Client update

Dear BibSonomy users,

right before Christmas we decided to release BibSonomy Version 3.8.6. This minor update includes a couple of bugfixes and minor improvements. For example:

  • Adding publications by DOI is now working more reliable
  • BibTex mass-export now contains your tags as keywords
  • Updated existing scrapers and added new ones (e.g.
  • ...

Beside that we updated our Java-REST-Client. Spaces in search terms are no longer replaced by „+“. In case you are using the Java-REST-client we recommend to update to the latest version.

If you find something not working as you think it should, drop us a message either per Twitter or mail :)

Happy Tagging!

Firefox and Chrome Extension Update

Firefox Quantum was released last month. We are happy to announce that version 1.10.1 of our "BibSonomy Buttons" extension is fully compatible with the new Firefox version.

Firefox now supports the Browser Extensions standard, the same API that our Chrome extension uses. We adapted our Chrome browser extension to also work with Firefox to only develop one extension for both browser.

Furthermore, we also updated the shortcut feature. Instead of using our own implementation, we now use the commands API. The default shortcuts are:
  • myBibsonomy: Ctrl+Shift+Y (macOS: Ctrl+Shift+H)
  • save bookmark: Ctrl+Shift+X (macOS: Ctrl+Shift+B)
  • save publication: Ctrl+Shift+V (macOS: Ctrl+Shift+P)
We also published a new version of our Chrome extension. Please visit the Chrome Web Store for more information.

Happy browsing and tagging,
