  KBibTeX is a user-friendly BibTeX editor

KBibTeX is a bibliography editor for KDE and is most often used in conjunction with Kile. KBibTeX's primary file format is BibTeX as known from LaTeX, but other formats such as RIS or EndNote can be imported and exported.

Currently, there is a stable version for KDE3, for which most Linux distributions include packages for easy installation. A version for KDE4 is under development, but already mature for most daily tasks.

KBibTeX allows you to do the following things:

  • Enter a preamble that defines how special text should be formatted in your bibliography using Element → New element → New preamble menu item or Main Toolbar.
  • Choose an entry encoding using Encoding item in Save as dialog or on the File Settings panel.
  • Enter comments that are not taken in regard by BibTeX using Element → New element → New comment menu item or Main Toolbar.
  • Preview and save bibliography entries in various formats (Source (BibTEX), Source (RIS), Wikipedia, standard (XML/XSLT), fancy (XML/XSLT), and abstract-only (XML/XSLT)) using Reference Preview panel. Additional preview styles become available when bibtex2html is installed.
  • Search for the bibliography entries data in online databases using Online Search panel.
  • View local or remote (online) resources (such as files) linked in the BibTeX entry using </menuchoice>Document Preview</menuchoice> panel.
  • Find and fix duplicate entries in bibliography using Edit → Find Duplicates menu item or Main Toolbar.
