Can you give an example?

Support for this is kind of rudimentary, because it is really difficult
to get properly formatted strings for all references.
When you click on a cite link and select copy formatted entry what
happens is the bibfile is opened to that entry and then the result of
org-ref-bib-citation is copied. It is pretty simple, and limited. At the
moment, I think helm-bibtex does the actual formatting if you load it,
and it does not appear to be customizable. See bibtex-completion-apa-format-

You could use a function like this on a link to get something more
(defun better-formatted-citation ()
citation (car (org-ref-get-bibtex-key-and- file)))))
see the variable org-ref-bibliography-entry-

be whatever format you want.

M-x org-ref-extract-bibtex-entries should put a new heading in the buffer
with the relevant bibtex entries.
