Instructions on recording references in ETH E-Citations are available here:
A work is regarded as a scientific publication if it has been produced in connection with the work of ETH members at ETH Zurich and has been published or accepted for publication by a publishing house in the broadest sense. At least one of the authors or editors must be a member of ETH Zurich at the time of the publication's origination.
See also Publication- and document types.

Only abstracts that were published in an open access journal under a Creative Commons license may be added.
Other journals usually claim all rights for the abstract and article from the authors at the moment of publication. The publication of these abstracts would cause an infringement on copyrights. Consequently you may only add abstracts that differ from the ones published by the journal.
