from looking at line 14 here https://www.zotero.org/trac/browser/extension/trunk/translators/unAPI.js i'd say: ad 1. RECOGNIZABLE_FORMATS = [mods, marc, endnote, ris, bibtex, rdf] also see function checkFormats ad 2. the order listed above ad 4.: from my experience the unapi scraper takes

This was the only information I found when I developed unAPI support for our MetaLib installation: http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/1229/unapi-support/. Based on my experimentation and looking at the code, if my memory serves: 1. At least the formats mentioned in the forum post. I believe

Wait, does it actually recognize the format by the format _name_ used, and not by a mime content-type? Like unless my unAPI server calls the endnote format endnote, it won't recognize it? That would be odd, and good to know. I thought the unAPI format names were purely arbitrary, but

well, looks like a combination: in case of mods it checks for the namespace URL, in case of rdf, it looks for a format name of rdf_dc, ... and yes, endnote export would have to have a name of endnote (i ran into this problem as well with names like endnote-utf-8, ...). i think unapi would be more

Yeah, we need some actual documentation on Zotero's use of unAPI in general. Maybe if I can figure it out (perhaps by asking the developer(s)) I'll write some for them. Robert Forkel wrote: well, looks like a combination: in case of mods it checks for the namespace URL, in case of rdf, it

The unAPI support is also...non-ideal...in that you can't present preferences for the best format to use. For example, the Refworks Tagged format just plain has more tags (and hence more or more-finely-grained information) than other formats (e.g., Endnote), but Zotero will prefer Endnote just

It's still a LOT better than COinS for Zotero, I assume though. I'd like there to be better documentation to encourage more people to use unAPI instead of COinS; even the limited Zotero documentation there is admits that COinS is pretty limited. Jonathan Bill Dueber wrote: The unAPI support

It's still a LOT better than COinS for Zotero, I assume though. Yes, if only because you get more complete metadata with things like RIS than COinS does via OpenURL. I do like the theoretical benefit of a metadata format request API , but the promise of richer metadata (primarily for Zotero)

At the moment Zotero development seem to be focussing on the use of RDFa using the Bibo ontology for picking up bib details from within pages (see discussion on the Bibo Google group) Owen On Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 4:17 PM, Chad Fennell fenne...@umn.edu wrote: It's still a LOT better than COinS
