Some of them show the doi code (which is like a permanent web link for a scientific paper) and others show the company name etc instead of the file name as the title. Is there anyway to force it use the file name as the title?

I tried calibre but I had to edit metatags manually to get it to work.
It always uses the metadata, not the filename.
There's a workaround though.
You can batch-process your files in calibre. If the metadata does exist, you can process hundreds of files that way. If it doesn't exist, unfortunately you have to add it manually.
