Fellow Mac & TeX users, I just wanted to follow this thread up with  
an announcement that more journals have been added to the article  
widget in case anyone has found it useful... hopefully it will only  
become more useful.

Journals are being added daily so check for updates if you don't see  
the ones you need (or let me know, and I'll try to add them).

The download link is still:


I have thought about making it into a service but I'll take it one  
step at a time. I would also love to integrate bibtex/bibdesk support  
but I think there are already a lot of good applescripts for pulling  
bibtex from journal websites, in addition to bibdesk's built-in  
support for WoS and web browsing in general. For now I just wanted to  
speed up the citation-to-webpage lookup time.

Happy TeX-ing
