- How many BibDesk files?
I am using LaTeX (and BibDesk) for research only (i.e., to write papers, book chapters, dissertation, etc.), therefore I need to cite an overlapping selection of references in each of my documents. Do you suggest that I stick to one BibDesk file for my bibliography? So far I have been creating different files for different documents, including the files in the document's folder (e.g. paper_one.tex and paper_one.bib in folder 'paper_one', paper_two.tex and paper_two.bib in folder 'paper_two', etc.). What happens is that I sometimes make small corrections to typos and other mistakes in, say, my paper_three.bib file, but those corrections won't transfer to other papers' .bib files. That is the main reason why I am considering unifying my .bib files. Won't I have a folder problem if I do so?
Different publishers require different capitalization styles. I have used curly brackets in my .bib title entries to keep the capitalization as inputed by me (title case capitalization). Now I am submitting to a different publisher which requires sentence case capitalization only, and I will have to remove my curly brackets from my .bib. Any suggestions with that?
