    I've got a way to do this using text2bib: Its a bit clunky but does help when someone shows up with refs in a doc and there is no other source for the refs. My instructions are here:

    I've also attached a copy

    CSL files can only be editied by the CSL community, so nothing we can change that.

    My understanding was the CSL file was correctly producing no publisher journal records (I was sent an example) and it's Primo which has been getting confused.

    One fix is Primo now does initials, not first name.

    Progress is being made on this. The CSL file is fine, its how Primo interprets the info which is the issue. I am due a webinar update soon.

    Just had an email from the person who owns the Cite them Right Harvard CSL file who says it works fine. The fault is with how Primo is using it. The problem has been referred to the second tier support team who ever they are to fix. Will keep people posted on this.

    Really dissapointing. Please can the Primo team and the RefWorks team talk to each other and share their best practice to provide a quality customer solution?

    Agree Primo using the non-CSL file from RefWorks would be an immediate massive quick win for Primo. Please can this be done for this academic year?

    Ditto for Primo please, as in common with many UK Universities this is what we offer. The version in Primo is inaccurate, eg puts publishers in journal references.

    Yes please to this. We use Cite them Right as our standard Uni wide referencing system and if Summon could reflect this it would be brilliant. (Yes we know we can do this via RefWorks, so long as the title isn't in capitals, but that's an added complication for our users.)

    Cite them Right online is widely used in the UK for UG students, so making this link would be really good to boost sales of Summon in the UK and provide the customer with a useful business solution.

    Please add this to Primo too. Book Reviews constantly fool students into thinking we have an ebook and then they complain.

    Due to limitations in the metadata associated with some content sources, there are cases where content that is full text is marked as being only an abstract, or where an abstract is marked as full text. Currently the system errs on marking it as full text, which provides some false positives. We could flip the priority which would reduce if not eliminate full-text icons appearing for abstracts, however, this would result in some full text being erroneously marked as abstract only.

    Much better to flip this. If I am searching and am told FT available but not it is very very annoying and then I email the librarian to complain who then has to investigate and write back which takes up their time on too many occasions.
    However, if I get an abstract with a bonus full text I am extra happy.
    Same applies with Primo, so hope you can fix that too.
    Please flip!

    And also making sure Cite Them Right Online (used by many us) works well too.

    We now have Harvard, but sadly not Cite them Right Harvard which is our official standard. Next issue is Primo doesn't allow us to set this as a default (which Summon did).

    Summon has this capability and Primo does not which means when we implement Alma we go back a step. Indeed it is no better than our current 1994 vintage LMS! Really poor given the need to support students with dyslexia. Should be a high priority to fix.
