Referencer

Referencer

Referencer is a document organiser and bibliography manager for GNOME. This application helps users to organise documents or references, and generate a BibTeX bibliography file.

Referencer may be used for editing your documents and bibliography data (library). However, this application also includes useful time-saving features. The most important among these is the automatic acquisition of bibliographic information (metadata) for certain types of document. When adding a PDF file to a Referencer library file, it will automatically be searched for key identifiers such as a DOI code or arXiv identifier. If either of these is found, Referencer will attempt to retrieve the metadata for the document via the internet.

Referencer also uses its knowledge of papers to provide handy functions such as opening the web page associated with the article, or opening the document itself. Additionally, you can attach tags to documents to catgorise them, and then browse documents more easily by filtering them by tag. The software is a great tool for the scientist and researcher.
