How to expand first names of an entry
Sometimes, one has a BibTeX/biblatex entry with abbreviated short names:
1
@Article{Eshuis_2015,
2
author = {R. Eshuis and A. Norta and O. Kopp and E. Pitkanen},
3
journal = {{IEEE} Transactions on Services Computing},
4
title = {Service Outsourcing with Process Views},
5
year = {2015},
6
month = {jan},
7
number = {1},
8
pages = {136--154},
9
volume = {8},
10
publisher = {Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers ({IEEE})},
11
}
Copied!
Now, one wants to have the full first names. In case, there is a DOI available, this is as simple as the following steps:
    1.
    Determine the DOI: Switch to the "General" tab and click on "Look up DOI"
    2.
    Fetch BibTeX data from the DOI: Click on "Get BibTeX data from DOI"
    3.
    A popup appears. Select which data you want to merge into the existing entry
    4.
    Now the first names are expanded:
