I want to start using scrips to organize my bibtex file and I would love to use zbMATH's database for that.

I already know how to create an URL to search for a paper by fields, such as in:


This returns me a webpage (html) with the correct search results. But how do I specify that I want the results in BibTeX? Actually on the html there is a button to get to the bib-file I want, but I can't get it through the URL...

PS: sorry for the scripting question in TeX Exchange, but it's BibTeX, so I don't know the right place for it.
