How can I truncate http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/ from every adsurl field that looks like

adsurl = {http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2015EPJST.224.2217S}.

Could it be accomplished by changing the rendering


I would like the field to appear as link at the end of a reference as

Author (year), Title, ..., ADS: 2015EPJST.224.2217S

This question appeared in How to add adsurl field as link to bibliography.


It seems like I found a first solution based on the comment by Joseph Wright by cutting the text first and adding it later as follows


      \step[fieldsource=adsurl, match={http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/},

\DeclareFieldFormat{adsurl}{ADSURL: \href{http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/#1}{#1}}


And it produces something like:

Kundu, M. R. (1965). Solar radio astronomy. New York: Interscience Publication,
1965. ADSURL: 1965sra..book.....K.

While 1965sra..book.....K is a link. See How to add adsurl field as link to bibliography.

I am wondering if this is the simplest way of doing it.
