Projects / Pybliographer


Pybliographer is a tool for managing bibliographic databases. It supports several bibliography formats (BibTeX, Refer, Medline, ISI, Ovid) and can be used for searching, editing, reformatting, etc, through its nice graphical interface for GNOME. Due to its nature, it can be extended to many uses (generating HTML pages according to bibliographic searches, etc). It is provided with sample scripts.

          Release Notes: This is a preview release provided an interesting Python platform for importing, merging, batch modifying, formatting, fixing, and enriching bibliographic data. It is not bound to a single data format but can work with most of them. The code is extensible: you can easily adapt the existing parsers to match your needs and define a data schema that corresponds to your data. It is developer friendly and can be integrated with your own Python development, and uses Python instead of complex configuration files for most of its extensions, like the citation formatter.

            Re: Keywords
            Thanks for pointing that out. I've added a few keywords :-)

            This is pretty much the program which I was looking for a while ago. I couldn't find it until I saw it today on the frontpage. I'm not saying that I'm the best searcher but I suggest that you would add more descriptive words, such as bibtex, to the about section. That way more people could find this brilliant program!

            If I were a woman, I'd have the author's babies.... well. Anyway, It allows me to load a file from web of science and convert it to bibtex flawlessly and has a good user interface. I'd like easier import via Mozilla (i.e., register as a handler for Mozilla), but I'm not sure there isn't already a way (although it isn't documented). I thank the authors for a great program.
