Location on CTAN: support/references
Summary: REFERENCES is bibliographic software for
authors of scientific manuscripts and for management of
bibliographic data of ARTICLES IN JOURNALS, of BOOKS,
of CHAPTERS IN BOOKS and other document types including
notes and electronic documents. REFERENCES supports
LaTeX including BibTeX. Bibliographic records in
MEDLINE format are easily imported. Retrieval of
references is possible by keywords, authors' or
editors' names, date of publication, title of article,
book title, journal name and other data fields. Lists
of references and formatted citations in the text can
be compiled in any bibliographic style required by the
publishers of scientific journals. REFERENCES is
provided with a text based console interface compiled
for win32-systems and as Linux port. An external text
editor is required for editing data.
Changes in v4.3d:
For books, the ISBN field has been enlarged to 20
characters due to the change of the international
standard book number format in 2007.
Linux version only: menu options in square brackets may
now be highlighted (controlled by the ENABLE_HL
variable in the configuration file).
A new awk script ``emptylines.awk'' added: removes
empty lines from a text file.
Bugfix: incorrect assessment of string length (Linux
systems with utf-8 encoding) fixed.
All changes and recommendations for use of the new
version may be found in the history.txt document. The
manual (refsdok.pdf) has been updated.
