Currently I'm managing my thesis bibliography with JabRef and I want to know how to obtain key authors list and relations between them from all these references. I know that this can be accomplished by using charts, citation reports and graphs provided by ISI Web of knowledge. But I wanted to know if there is another way to do it.

    JabRef is possibly the most prominent bibliographic manager for bibtex databases. There are currently 121 questions tagged with jabref. There are also tags for other bibliography management software such as BibDesk. – koppor Feb 15 '16 at 10:32

Currently, this is not possible.

Recommender systems are planned in this year (2016): http://www.docear.org/docear/blog/. So, if you know an IT master student, feel free to recommend a project in Japan.

Charting is discussed among the developers: https://github.com/koppor/jabref/issues/38. There is also the PRRV plugin, but it is implemented straight-forwardly, and the developers should come up with a better approach: https://github.com/koppor/jabref/issues/95.

Links between entries are discussed among the JabRef developers: https://github.com/koppor/jabref/issues/14. Also cross-references: https://github.com/koppor/jabref/issues/79.
