In the JabRef entry table, I’d like to have a column that displays the journaltitle for an @article entry and the booktitle for an @incollection (etc.) entry, rather than having a separate column for journaltitle and booktitle. They’re never both filled out in one entry, so I could save some column space here.

Is there any way to achieve this?


To change the columns, go to Options⇒Preferences⇒Entry table columns. In the table, simply enter both field names separated by a slash, so e.g. journaltitle/booktitle. You can even combine more than two fields this way. The first non-empty field will be displayed in the entry table.

This feature was implemented following feature request #438 author/editor column, but doesn’t seem to be documented elsewhere.
