    Maybe try Zotero[1]. There are many addons which can do what you need.


  • I wrote my bibliography manually (Dont ask why). How do I sort it by the first letter of each entry?

    And next time, you use a real literature management program like zotero (some university libraries offer classes, there is a r/zotero, etc) or jabref to create a proper bibtex file with the references. It is not that difficult, and keeps you sane (esp. if a paper has to be formatted for a different publisher). See e.g. learnlatex.

    Zotero | Remote | Full-Time or Part-Time | https://www.zotero.org

    Zotero is an open-source project that develops software to help people collect, organize, annotate, cite, and share their research. Our software is recommended by most universities and used by millions of students, scholars, scientists, and researchers worldwide.

    We're looking for a JavaScript developer to work on Zotero "translators" — the pieces of code that let people click a button in their browser toolbar on any webpage and save high-quality metadata and files to their Zotero libraries. If you like web scraping, APIs, data formats, and exploring sites in the browser devtools, this would be up your alley. As a core Zotero developer, you'll also have the ability to work across Zotero's vast ecosystem and help shape the future of the project.

    This is an open-ended contract role that can scale up and down in hours based on availability and workload.

    Zotero is your answer, it even auto generates your citations.


    Apparently there are plugins for Logseq and Obsidian as well.

  • Is there an equivalent of calibredb for research papers?
    3 projects | /r/emacs | 12 Jul 2023
    I use the free and open source Zotero which I think you'd find very calibre-like and manage notes and concept linking with org-roam in emacs.

    Resources: ZOTERO. Zotero is a free (you can pay to get more storage), open-source citation manager with optional browser plugins. IT WILL FORMAT CITATIONS FOR YOU. (sometimes you have to edit them, but most of the time it can pull metadata and format things correctly on its own). You can sort your references into folders or with tags, read and annotate PDF copies on your computer or in a mobile app, and make notes - which I used to keep track of specific quotations I wanted to use.
  • Extra Reading for Archaeology / Ancient History
    1 project | /r/6thForm | 30 Jun 2023
    You can also use online resources like The Encyclopedia of Archaeological Sciences, that I think is mostly free or the Handbook of Archaeological Sciences which I think is also mostly free. If you can't get a hold of those things you can also email the authors/editors and they might send you a free copy or look them up on Academia.edu and see if they have a free version. Also, if you don't already, use Google Scholar, it's the best resource for finding free articles and topics to read. It's also never too early to start using something like Zotaro, Mendeley, or Endnote to keep track of your readings and help you with citations/references in papers. You can literally download the citation, import it into one of those systems and it automatically formats your referencing.
