Change the output of added Kopernio tags in Mendeley export from 'Author Keywords' to 'Tags'

John McManus shared this idea 4 months ago

After choosing 'View PDF' using the Kopernio extension, the option is given to 'Add tags' to the document:

ae6a900fa4d97d6690b2c07069f3f85e

When selecting 'Export to Mendeley', these tags are kept in the downloaded RIS file, but are registered as 'Author keywords' for Mendeley:

da116f7830acea039b74a2f48968737d

Ideally these would be interpreted as 'Tags' and not 'Author Keywords', as when keywords are included by the authors they appear to overwrite any included Kopernio tags.

Hi John,


Thank you for reaching out.

Unfortunately, we can't change this feature, due to the unified formatting of RIS files. These keyword meta tags (such as the Kopernio tags) are saved as KW (keywords) fields.

When Mendeley processes the RIS file, these KW items are saved as 'Author keywords'.

The Mendeley 'Tags' field has a local scope in the Mendeley library.

For example, you may add tags to the above record manually in Mendeley, then choose to export it as a new RIS file. The tags will not be incorporated into the RIS, because of the local scope of this meta tag. Instead, the 'Author Keywords' will be saved in the RIS file (as KW).


Hope this helps but please let me know if you have any questions.


Best wishes,

Ah, I thought that might have been the issue as I couldn't see a field for Tags when opening the RIS files in notepad.

Thanks anyway for the response!
