The format of JabRef is BibTeX! So of course you can export a subset of a database in that format. Open a database and select the entries you want Select "Save Selected as…" from the "File" menu Give a name to the extracted file Use the resulting .bib file % This file was created with JabRef 2.5. % Encoding: UTF8 @INCOLLECTION{Degani:2009, ...

The proper TDS-compliant setup is as shown below. Make a directory, say c:\mytexmf and put your bibtex files in c:\mytexmf\bibtex\bib\mypackages\... Add your local texmf directory to the latex search path by declaring it in MiKTeX: Start -> All programs -> MikTeX -> maintenance -> Setup Under the tab Roots add the path, say c:\mytexmf and ...

You could use the cite package. By default, it will put a small amount of whitespace after each comma. If you want an ordinary interword space after the commas, include the space option; i.e., in your document's preamble, you should invoke the package as follows: \usepackage[space]{cite}

I've noticed two things: The encoding of your document is latin9 (View > View Source > Complete Source), but The entries in your .bib file are written in UTF-8 fashion, which BibTeX doesn't support. So, try writing accented characters in your .bib the usual way, e.g. González > Gonz{\'{a}}lez etc. Also, check LyX wiki for useful tips regarding usage ...

Thank you everyone! I have experimented a bit further, and some nice folk at LaTex community helped me figure out what's wrong. In my 'Configure Texmaker', i actually had the wrong setting (as you can see form the screen cap) I changed it back to "bibtex %.aux" and now it works! And I also set the quickBuild to latex bibtex latex pdfLatex ...

As Joseph Wright suggested in his comments as far as I am aware you cannot modify the behavior from options>>preferences. I also do not know of any plug in that would provide this support. I have never written a plug in for JabRef, but you might be able to pretty easily or you could make a feature request to JabREf: ...

If you have the BibTeX-Code available and copy that to your clipboard (either by opening the export.bib or by copying it from the homepage) and you click on the JabRef window (so that it has the focus) you can just paste (Ctrl+V) it as a new entry. I knew that from BibDesk (Mac OS) which I am using and found the same for JabRef here ...

Note that JabRef is only a BiBTeX database manager. On my machine, with an open project, clicking the "Save All" (Ctrl+Shift+S) in TeXnicCenter does a refresh of the project structure, including that of a Literature database update if the project has been processed under BiBTeX. In TeXstudio to refresh the drop-down list of references after updating your ...

I don't know of anything that will work without bother. For Word 2007, Reference Manager will export Word's bibliography to Bibtex. The next release is intended to handle Word 2010 bibliographies. I have the impression that you can import the 2010 format sources.xml files into Word 2007, with Word 2007 dropping what it doesn't understand, but I can't ...

Assuming that you are using (a) a bibliography style file that knows what to do with a field named url in an entry of type @article and (b) the natbib citation management package, all you would have to do is (i) change the name of the field from adsurl to url and (ii) load the hyperref package. After some poking around on the web, I've come across the ...

If your aim is being able to typeset bibliographies for specific topics, with biblatex there's no need to store your bibentries in topic-specific .bib files. Instead, use the keywords field to specify a comma-separated list of keywords (topics) for each bibentry. You may then combine \nocite{*} with \printbibliography[keyword=<keyword>] to produce a ...

(1) Putting the bib file along with the rest of the project helped me. (2) I could also give relative path like ../../myreferences/mylibrary where the file mylibrary.bib was placed two levels above the current folder (3) Most of the problems could be solved by deleting the mylibrary.bbl file in the project folder and recompiling

As @Meho R. pointed out the problem seems to be the encoding. This can be fixed by: Changing the UTF-8 characters to escaped latex. This can be done by using konwert utf8-tex plus an extra command to add the braces. An easier way than changing your encoding all the time is to export the Lyx file to LaTeX and replace the command for the encoding ...

The style of the references is not much depending on the data in the .bib file (or a program like JabRef). The main factor is the chosen bibliography style of your document. It determines which fields are shown. Suggestions to improve the looks: If URLs occur in your document (e.g. in the references) you can add \usepackage{url} to the preamble (in LyX ...

The bibliography style you are using sets only the first letter of a title in uppercase and converts everything else to lowercase. To protect parts of a title from this, encase them in curly brackets {} in the .bib file, e.g. @ARTICLE{adem, author = {Alejandro Adem and William Browder}, title = {The free rank of symmetry of {$(S^n)^k$}}, journal = ...

JabRef is a program for managing BibTeX database (.bib) files but does not directly affect what happens in LaTeX. Adding a database to a .tex file does not add in the citations. You need either \cite or \nocite: the latter adds references to the bibliography without a citation in the text \begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib} @article{demo1, author = {Other, ...

You can set up Jabref to automatically import a reference from Firefox into the current database, but it's somewhat arcane. Here is my solution under Linux: 1) Select Options -> Preferences -> Advanced -- and check "Listen for remote operation ..." I don't think it matters which port. 2) Create a small bash script (text file) named "jabref-import" that ...

You have to use extra braces around the part of the names which should not be enshortened. It should look like this: @ARTICLE{Aalst2003, author = {{Wil .M.P.} {van der Aalst} and {Arthur. H. M.} {ter Hofstede} and B. Kiepuszewski and {A. P.} Barros}, title = {Workflow Patterns}, journal = {Distributed and Parallel Databases}, year = {2003}, volume = {3}, ...

Simple answer: Place your bib file in the folder where your tex files are located. More complex answer: Make a TDS compliant tree. For example: \Miktex\bibtex\bib\mybibs And place your bib files in this folder. The root folder \Miktex can be placed anywhere you want. Edited for correctness, as suggested by Ulrike Fischer.
