However, I still think you should let users submit links. There are
really two different issues here, one is to suggest a completely new
paper, another is to provide a link to an already listed paper where
there's currently no link provided. A lot of the papers only have a
DOI link currently. Submitting such links won't need any name
normalization, as the paper is already listed.

For papers not already in your database, maybe have a two-tier system
where not-yet-checked entries are marked as such when they are shown?

Providing bibtex entries would be nice as well.
