With the `org-bibtex-yank' function mentioned (briefly) in one of my
previous responses, it is possible to read directly from the top of the
kill ring, which (assuming your kill ring is integrated with your
clipboard --- which is the case for me, but I don't know if it is a
common setup) means that entries can be "yanked" directly from your
clipboard into an Org-mode file as a headline.
