I am used to manage my bibliography with org-ref and I am very satisfy with it. Nevertheless, in the context of a grant proposal writing, space is limited. So I would to save the space allowed to bibliography refs by replacing the classical citation approach by direct links on DOI (through https:\\doi.org...) of the cited paper. i.e. something like:


instead of :


Do you know if is there a way to do what I expect with org-ref ? Thx


The solution first rests in Latex instead of the org-ref configuration. Indeed a solution using biblatex and the definition of a new command is described here by Yegor256 and perfectly do the job (but directly in Latex). Now the next step is to make org-ref able to recognize this alternate \citea{} command. Any idea ?

  • I think you can just add (org-ref-define-citation-link "citea") to your init file, and it should create that link type. – John Kitchin Apr 22 '20 at 20:55
  • Thanks it works perfectly ! The last thing I have to do is to create a keyboard shortcut in helm. – Bertrand Simon Apr 23 '20 at 8:26
