jabref - graphical frontend to manage BibTeX databases


jabref [options] [bibtex-file]


JabRef is a graphical Java application for editing bibtex (.bib) databases. JabRef lets
you organize your entries into overlapping logical groups, and with a single click limit
your view to a single group or an intersection or union of several groups. You can
customize the entry information shown in the main window, and sort by any of the standard
Bibtex fields. JabRef can autogenerate bibtex keys for your entries. JabRef also lets you
easily link to PDF or web sources for your reference entries.
JabRef can import from and export to several formats, and you can customize export
filters. JabRef can be run as a command line application to convert from any import format
to any export format.
