Helm-bibtex doesn’t deal with this because I prefer to edit my BibTeX
file by hand.  BibTeX retrieved from journals is almost always messy and
I need to edit it anyway.  It’s not too hard, though: I click on BibTeX
export on the journal page, the BibTeX file is opened in Emacs, I fix
it, and use a command that appends it to my bibliography.

However, I think org-ref has tools that do more to support importing new
entries and org-ref combines well with helm-bibtex.

Org-ref has doi-utils that let you add bibtex entries and download PDFs from a doi or crossref query.

That’s what helm-bibtex was written to solve.

In helm-bibtex you can also search for keywords and tags.

helm-bibtex can generate references in APA style but as far as I can see
Chicago style is very similar, so it shouldn’t be hard to add support
for that.
