Getting reference type via Applescript

Post by kseggleton »

I was wondering if there is any way of getting the reference type via Applescript e.g. Journal, Book Chapter etc. It appears that reference type is stored as «class RIST» but I don't seem to be able to access it.

You would ask Bookends to send you the reference in RIS format (the GUID AppleEvent). The reference type is given after the tag TY - that begins each reference.
