### Import abstract only

Hi all -- I'm conducting a long literature scan and want to add a citation and abstract to my text. Right now, I'm using
`\bibentry{my_citation_key}`
to import the citation. Is there a way to import the abstract right below the citation? Or, is there a separate command that allows me to only import the abstract from my .bib file?

Thanks!
Matthew

It would involve writing a bibliography style file (*.bst) that only inserts the abstract. This could be done, but you'd have to write it yourself (it's not an everyday request).
