  • jabref

    Graphical Java application for managing BibTeX and biblatex (.bib) databases

    It looks really good, might use it on top of JabRef[1] when I snapshot my library for inclusion in a paper. Even so, JabRef already does most of what is advertised here, but it is really useful just by being in the browser.

  • zotero

    Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, annotate, cite, and share your research sources.

    After getting into my thesis I switched to Zotero[1] to manage my resources. Its extension BetterBibtex[2] can refresh a bibfile automatically on change. Even works on subcollections too.

  • biblint

    BibLint -- a system for fixing bibtex databases

  • rebiber

    A simple tool to update bib entries with their official information (e.g., DBLP or the ACL anthology).

    This is great! Especially nice to be able to remove entire fields.

    Relatedly, here are a couple of tools to ensure that references are complete (e.g. updating arXiv papers to their published versions, mostly for computer science papers):

    - https://github.com/yuchenlin/rebiber (CLI, web interface)

    - https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~ga384/bibfix.html (only *ACL papers, web interface with diff, disclaimer: mine)

  • writegood-mode

    Minor mode for Emacs to improve English writing

  • betterbib

    :green_book: Command-line tools for bibliographies.

    I find formatting is usually a nonissue with BibTeX files as entries tend to already be automatically generated from some authoritative source (e.g., CrossRef).

    What I do end up using a lot however is nschloe's betterbib [1].

  • allmytexs

    My allmytexs script package has a texlint script which runs fotlatexmk, chktex, hunspell, and linkchecker. The next updates will also run biblint.

  • bibtool

    BibTool is a tool for manipulating BibTeX data bases. BibTeX provides a mean to integrate citations into LaTeX documents. BibTool allows the manipulation of BibTeX files which goes beyond the possibilities -- and intentions -- of BibTeX.

  • zotero-better-bibtex

    Make Zotero effective for us LaTeX holdouts
