The cb2Bib is a tool for rapidly extracting bibliographic references from email alerts, journal web pages, and PDF files. It facilitates the capture of single references from unformatted and non standard sources. Output references are written in BibTeX. Article files can be easily linked and renamed by dragging them onto the cb2Bib window. Additionally, it permits editing and browsing BibTeX files, citing references, searching references and the full contents of the referenced documents, inserting bibliographic metadata to documents, and writing short notes that interrelate several references.


Document postprocessing and keyword extraction have been improved. A bug that prevented proper indexing when a document conversion was missing has been fixed.

 A couple of problems

 by paulatz on: Apr 4 2006
Score 50%

First I wish to thank you for your great software, it is definetly faster than writing bib at hand.

First of I have added this lines to my abbreviations:

PR|Phys. Rev.|Physical Review
PR|Phys. Rev. Lett.|Physical Review Letters
PR|Phys. Rev. A|Physical Review A
PR|Phys. Rev. B|Physical Review B

Second: network search does not work, or maybe I can't understand how it is supposed to work.

If I insert thew minimum information and than click on network lookup the status bar will show that it's lookin for info on www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov and crossref.org and than stop: nothing happens.

I'll suppose the retrieved html to be copied in the cb2bib window, even if it cannot be autoparsed.

Furthermore, I'll setup my own bookmark file if I could figure out how it works (as www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov definetly is *not* the right place for physics articles)

Last: clipboard connection could be tuned non to autopaste "internal" selections (e.g. I click on the "year" field it's autoselected, autopasted, autoparsed and messes up all the other fields). This is a minor problem, but it would be nice.

Bye and thanks.

1) Try typing prl at the journal box, press enter; you'll get Phys. Rev. Lett. written for you. Also, type praamop, to get Phys. Rev. A: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. So your journals are there... Should you prefer an incomplete abbreviation, feel free to modify the abbreviation file accordingly.

2) Network stuff might be tricked when retrieving of files is complicated by redirections or cookies. I'd suggest you to use kfmclient in these cases. See config panel. Make sure you don't have temporary files left in your home dir. This files are left there if so requested, to help you to write and debug your personalized netqinf file. Just at random, I tried prl, intro, set pages=1 and volume=10, and click net button. My browser show up with this page: http://prola.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v10/i1/p1_1 cb2Bib 0.6.0 includes a contributed regexp for PROLA. I could now easily extract the reference, and attach the pdf file to it, just dragging and dropping to cb2Bib. Feel free to modify and improve this regexps if you wish. NCBI is good for JCP and others. Crossref will work for many more, provided they have a DOI.

3) Go through the examples given at the netqinfo file. Try to understand them. Its syntax is pretty simple. It was designed having in mind that there is not definite database for scientific references. Insted, there is a huge number of different sites but just usefull for a very limitted number of journals. cb2Bib goals are to provide a frame or infrastructure to overcome this. I'd suggest to put sometime of yourself on it. I'm pretty sure it will pay off.

4) Just click connect/disconnect button if you need internal copying. cb2Bib is designed to minimize the number of steps needed for extracting a reference. In most of the cases this means to have it aware of clipboard changes.

 Binary Packages

It would be great, if you could provide binary packages for some common distributions, e.g. using the openSUSE build service (http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service).

Arne, I wasn't aware of this service. I looked at it and it seems a pretty good way to get the binaries for several distros/versions. I'll try to get an account there, and hopefully, next releases will have several binaries to chose from. Thanks.

Arne, thank you for let me know about the openSUSE build service. I got packages for SuSE and RedHat. Ubuntu and Debian will need to wait. There is the issue of (the lack of) Qt4 on the default packages available. As far as I read, updated, non SuSE distros will be available soon.

So thanks, and also thanks to the comunity behind openSUSE build service that gave me the permission to use their resources.

Does not install.
I have version 0.7.2 working fine.
However, this 0.8.1 version does not install. (nor did 0.7.3).

Thank you for let me know, this message didn't catch my attention. The command 'make install' doesn't return any error code, which is what my packaging script checks. In any case, and in spite of this message, installation goes well (all files are properly copied).

On version 0.7.2 it was introduced the 'download to reference manager' functionality. For convenience, the shell script dl_cb2bib was included. This was done to avoid conflicts with the config file cb2bib.desktop on KDE, which opens *.bib files.

When installing, make does 'strip dl_cb2bib', and hence we get 'File format not recognized. Error 1 (ignored)'. This seems to be *normal* for shell scripts. I'm a bit puzzled regarding when this started. Version 0.7.2 already had dl_cb2bib. Make files are done by qmake. Qt requirements hasn't changed since then, though this could come from newer Qt versions.

I'll try to figure out how to avoid this message. For the moment, just ignore it. Installation should be fine. Let me know if it's not.

Dear Constans,
I was puzzled with your reply but now I sort of understand, at least one part.

cb2bib version 0.7.2 remains installed in the path /usr/bin/cb2bib

However, cb2bib version 0.8.1 does install in the path /usr/local/bin/cb2bib

For this reason when I invoked it from the kde menu it gave me version 0.7.2 and I thought the newer version was not installed.

Manuel, thank you for your replay.

The default path changed to /usr/bin some time ago. I checked this now (I did a cleanup in the settings stuff in 0.8.1 and some bug could be there) and, by default, it should still be pointing to /usr/bin ...

Regarding the error message, I just learned that qmake does strip all executable files when writing the Makefile. I saw a post at the Qt mailing list, though it wasn't there any workaround to deal with attached scripts.

Anyway, hope now works smmooth :-)

.rpm package converted to .deb via alien works good on Ubuntu Feisty.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
