TexNicCenter has a Literature -search but it does not work. Suppose I write a number-theoretic -paper and a reference is a book but I cannot remember its publication details such as Author, Year and Publisher. I currently use Bibtex and I always manually enter things but after seeing the Literature -search in TexNicCenter, I started to think there may be some sort of platform-independent reference -search.
Does there exist some sort of tool that could help me to find fast the details (not going to library or using google)?
Does it export things to Bibtex -format?
Some sort of tool exist in Apple -products that helps to search academic papers (pay-only) but I haven't yet seen any platform-independent tool that could help to fill the reference details to formats such as bibtex. Also it is monotonous working to keep track of refrencese, perhaps some tool also to store refrences. Just brainstorming, ideas?
