Chinese, Cyrillic, and Arab characters in URLs

We have a pleasant and handy update in our citation service.

You might have noticed that, when copying a link with Chinese, Cyrillic, Arab or ony other non-traditional characters from the address bar of your browser, you get some hardly readable code symbols with '%' signs. For example, if you copy this link from the browser

you will get the following output after perfroming Ctrl+V :

Why does this happen, if we see a nice link in our address bar, as shown in the first example? This is due to automatic encoding. For the sake of trouble-free work, all non-Latin characters in URLs have their encoded equivalents, which you happen to see in the form of '%' signs, letters, and digits.

When we paste this kind of links into our bibliography, we face two considerable flows: first, it can be very long and take one third of a page or even more; second, it is not quite neat or readable.

We have improved our algorithms, and now all your links will be not only accurate but also aesthetic. If you copy a URL with Chinese, Cyrillic, or other non-traditional characters and paste it to generate a journal article refrence, we will automatically convert the hyperlink and insert a neat and correct URL:
