When I import references from either the jstor website or through jabref front end, they all show up as red (i.e. incomplete). Specifically, "Journal title" is not present in the required field.

The really weird thing is, when I cite these references, they all show up complete. So where is "journal title" stored in my bib entry?

    Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Show how you call your bib file and show us a small part of your bib file containing a red marked book. You can use package filecontents (more type texdoc filecontents) to include the bib file in your MWE. – Mensch Oct 4 '12 at 3:36

    Do you happen to use Biblatex mode? Standard BibTeX format has journal as the name of that field, but JabRef in biblatex mode expects journaltitle. – Torbjørn T. Oct 4 '12 at 5:23

    JabRef's 'completeness' measure is only very basic. It simply checks if certain fields are completed, and does not allow for possible 'either/or' cases (such as editor and author for many types). As such, it's at best an aid to you checking properly. – Joseph Wright Oct 4 '12 at 6:17
