bibutils – A collection of bibliography format convertors
The bibutils program set interconverts between various bibliography formats using a common MODS-format XML intermediate. For example, one can convert RIS-format files to BibTeX by doing two transformations: RIS->MODS->BibTeX. By using a common intermediate for N formats, only 2N programs are required and not N^2-N. These programs operate on the command line and are styled after standard UNIX-like filters.
The author reckons to use the tools at the command line, but they are suitable for scripting and have been incorporated into a number of different bibliographic projects.
