Wikipedia pages about scientific papers contain many citations. Usually the citations use the "Citation" template, which gives a uniform look to all citations in a page.

I have a large database in CiteULike, and I would like to cite papers from my database in a Wikipedia article I am working on.

Is there a way to automatically convert from CiteULike format, perhaps through BibTeX format, to the format of the Wikipedia Citation template?

I know that there is another template - "Cite doi" - which is much easier to use, but, in some Wikipedia pages it is not allowed to use this template from reasons of uniformity.

One way could be to export CiteULike citations in BibTeX format, then use BibTeX2Wiki converter to convert BibTeX citations into Wikipedia's citation style 1 templates.
