JabRef Reviews

about JabRef · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

JabRef is wonderful, if you are looking for tool to use for writing, as well as organizing your entire library of academic research articles.
Supports direct import of entry attributes based on doi, ISBN, as well as other identifiers.
The customizability of the environment is great and offers a lot to any academic, including undergraduates.
On the other hand, the Java based environment has been growing over time, becoming fairly resource demanding, which makes it slower than would be desired. Occasionally, a glitch occurs, but never anything that wouldn't be fixed in the standard "turn it off and on again" approach.


Plugins enable extra funcitonality, including Microsoft Word integration
