Latex note#3 managing citations…v2

Tired of editing bibtex files with a half-thousand lines?

I suggest you use a bibtex manager: such as JabRef.

A feature list includes:

  • Advanced BibTeX editor
  • Detailed editing of BibTeX entries.
  • Search functions
  • Search a pattern in the whole bibliography.
  • Classification of entries
  • You can group entries explicitly, by keywords or any other fields.
  • Import of various formats
  • BibTeXML, CSA, Refer/Endnote, ISI Web of Science, SilverPlatter, Medline/Pubmed (xml), Scifinder, OVID, INSPEC, Biblioscape, Sixpack, JStor and RIS.
  • Customization of BibTeX fields
  • You can add your own fields to any BibTeX entry type.
  • Integrates to your environment
  • Launch external applications: PDF/PS viewers, web browser, insert citations into LyX, Kile, LatexEDitor, Emacs, Vim and WinEdt… (I think no support for LEd, but have to search more)
  • Automatic Key generation (nice one…)
  • Search Medline, Citeseer, IEEEXplore and arXiv
