[GUI Plugin] Astro-ph

A tool for organizing and maintaining library of scientific articles.

Used to download papers from ArXiv. (Mainly from Astrophysics section, as evident by the title, but as that website contains electronic prints in various sections such as Physics, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Biology and Finance, no reason why it shouldn't work on them, either).

It also supports NASA ADS Abstract Service links for collecting metadata purpose. If there is an ArXiv e-print associated with a record, it will be downloaded, otherwise, Calibre will create a blank record with metadata only.

It downloads all the relevant metadata information, such as Title, Authors, Abstract, Publication Date, and Citation Info (stored in the Publisher column). Please note that the latter may not render correctly if the record is downloaded from ADS, and it is not an actual published paper, but rather a presentation, a proposal, a conference talk etc. Do make sure to check it afterwards.

As an added bonus (though not part of this plugin), Calibre is capable of exporting book records in BibTex format.

Installation steps:
Download the attached zip file and install the plugin/add to context menu or toolbar/restart Calibre as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.

Special notes:
Calibre v0.8.57 or later is required

File Type: zip astroph_plugin_110.zip (187.9 KB, 11498 views)

Hi, I installed the plug-in, but it doesn't seem to work. Actually it is "fetching metadata" for ages. When I start it and hit download papers, I get the following error: calibre, version 1.14.0
ERROR: Uknown error <b>IndexError</b>:list index out of range

calibre 1.14 isfrozen: True is64bit: True
Linux-3.11.0-14-generic-x86_64-with-debian-wheezy-sid Linux ('64bit', 'ELF')
('Linux', '3.11.0-14-generic', '#21-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 12 17:04:55 UTC 2013')
Python 2.7.5
Linux: ('debian', 'wheezy/sid', '')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "calibre_plugins.astroph_plugin.dialogs", line 150, in do_loop
IndexError: list index out of range

Any suggestion?

Yeah, I haven't really done anything with it in quite a while, they likely has changed the page format. I'll try fixing it it a bit.

Give this file a try, it works on my end. If it doesn't work for you, let me know what link you are having an issue with.

iatheia, thanks for your response.

Question: when we hit the astro-ph button and the blank window appears (the one that states "paper url(s), one per line"), do we manually add the urls of the papers we are interested to download?

If the answer is "yes", then both the previous version of the plugin as well the new version, are ok. I just added a url and downloaded a cosmology paper.

Yesterday I thought that the plugin would "automatically" show me the papers and all I had to do then was to select which one I am interested to download etc.

Let me know, please,

Nikos

It should insert the link that you have copied in your buffer and if that link is of supported format. That does appear to be working for me.

Well, I have to add the urls manually (copy-paste), plug-in doesn't add them automatically from the buffer, but other than that, yes, it works ok (as I wrote above).

What link are you using? I can try to trouble-shoot.
And if you run into other bugs or have feature requests, let me know.
