The citations tool is used for w:User:Citation bot. Users have to authorize the tool via Oauth and their Wikipedia username will also be included in the edit, submitting suggestions on the users' behalf.

This tool was originally designed to add digital object identifiers (DOIs) to references; it now does much more, adding other identifiers (PMIDs, ISBNs), links to open access repositories, and fixing common formatting errors.
