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.
