you can still use org-ml to generate the string that gets inserted. I guess you would just go to the end of the buffer and insert it.

this is what I came up with. I don't know if it might be useful to others, or if maybe a modified version might be worth putthing into some kind of package.

(use-package org-cite
  (defcustom org-export-ensure-biblio
    "Whether or not to create bibliography slide when missing from document"
    :group 'org-export
    :type 'string)

  (defcustom org-export-biblio-heading-id
    "custom id for bibliography slide heading in org-re-reveal"
    :group 'org-export
    :type 'string
    :package-version '(org-re-reveal . 1.5))

  (defcustom org-export-biblio-heading-text
    "Default Title to display above bibliography in org-re-reveal"
    :group 'org-export
    :type 'string

  (defun mwp-add-biblio-export-hook (&optional backend)
    "If there's a citation object, search for a bibliography keyword;
if that's missing, create a new headline with the keyword. Intended for use with
      (when (and org-export-ensure-biblio
                 (not (re-search-forward "^[ ]?+#\\+print_bibliography:" nil t))
                   (goto-char (point-min))
                   (re-search-forward org-element-citation-key-re (point-max) t)))
        (let* ((title (or org-export-biblio-heading-text "Sources"))
               (id (or org-export-biblio-heading-id "bibliography")))
          (goto-char (point-max))
             :title `(,title)
               (org-ml-build-node-property "CUSTOM_ID" id))
              (org-ml-build-keyword "print_bibliography" "")))))))))

  (add-hook org-export-before-parsing-hook 'mwp-add-biblio-export-hook))

conditionally add a headline with content to parse tree using either org-export-before-parsing-hook or org-export-filter-parse-tree-functions

I use org-re-reveal to make lecture slides from subtrees. Often I forget to add a heading with #+print_bibliography: and as a result org-cite does not generate the bibliography, and my citations are not wrapped in links. I'd like to search *either* the parse tree  *or* the temporary export buffer for the #+print_bibliography keyword, and if it's not found, add a headline to the end of the subtree/parse-tree with the appropriate information. 

I can easily generate the proper lisp object with the org-ml package:

(org-ml-build-headline :title '("Sources")
                         (org-ml-build-node-property "CUSTOM_ID" "bibliography"))
                        (org-ml-build-keyword "print_bibliography" "" )

And if I want I can turn that into a string by wrapping it in (org-ml-to-trimmed-string ...)

However, I'm not sure how best to add it to the exported data.  I believe I can add a function to either org-export-before-parsing-hook or org-export-filter-parse-tree-functions, but beyond that I'm a bit lost. It's not immediately obvious how to find the last headline and append another headline after that headline's section. Looking at the nesting confuses me somewhat and I'm afraid I'll break the data structure.

Has anyone done something like this before and do you have ideas?

Thank you!
