Looks neat (if you use the particular journals it supports).  That  
would be more useful coupled with something like Skim.

In answer to your question: BibDesk doesn't do this directly, although  
you can add recognized text formats via Services.  However, the  
current nightly builds of BibDesk allow you to search and import from  
Web of Science directly, which I'm guessing a few people will find
