"A useful way of maintaining Bibtex references"

January 06, 2011  |  By philipm

 |  Version: JabRef 2.6


You don't have to remember Bibtex syntax


It isn't very good at importing Bibtext: paste it in to the raw BibTex box and it generally fails. It would also be good if it had corrections for non-ASCII characters, using TeX backslash codes.


It's a useful way of organising references but a bit weak on usability. A step up from editing a plain text file with Bibtex markeup.
