I am hoping to draw upon the expertise of other LaTeX/BibTeX user to help improve a common workflow of mine.
Currently, I download and import BibTex citations from the likes of IEEE/Springer/ScienceDirect and then cut and paste the citation into JabRef. That is, it goes something like this:
- (In firefox) IEEE/Springer/Whatever -> Export as BibTeX
- Create new article in JabRef
- Copy-paste citation text from gedit into Jabref.
Trying to open the
export.bib file into Jabref has it open the BibTeX file as a new database and I have to copy and paste the citation anyway.
I would like to improve this workflow to a one-click "Open With" when I save the
.bib from Firefox and it gets added to my BibTeX database.
I currently use JabRef, but would be willing to switch BibTeX managers if something else (in Linux) offers this feature. Of course, a script with
cat $FILE >> /path/to/my_database.bib might work, but I then still have to find that reference to link it to the paper I just saved :)
