KBib is a bibliography manager for KDE. It uses BibTex as its native file format

* Add/edit/remove references
* Support copy/paste/drag-drop of references (BibTex entries can be copied/pasted or dragged/dropped from another Kbib window or a text editor into KBib and vice versus)
* Search and download references from Z39.50 servers, SRU servers, Pubmed server, IEEEXplore, ISI Web of Knowledge, Google Scholar, Citebase.org, ArXiv, Spires, Scitation, Optics InfoBase, Science Direct and MathSciNet.
* Download references from remote reference database (opened with Konqueror, Firefox), such as IEEEXplore, ScienceDirect (RIS format), Web of Science (ISI format), Google Scholar (RIS and Endnote formats) into KBib (see screenshot)
* Create new references from plain text, reference identifiers (DOI, ArXiv ID or Pubmed ID) and PDF files.
* Find/remove duplicated references
* Generate citation key automatically
* Check/correct duplicated citation keys
* Lock/unlock citation keys (to prevent unwanted change of citation keys)
* Sort references
* Search references(fairly simple)
* Cite selected references into Lyx/Kile (using Lyx pipe)
* Support string macros
* Import references from Bibtex/RIS/ISI/Endnote/COPAC/MODS XML/PubMed XML/Endnote exported Bibtex (without citation key) files

* Save selected references into a new file
* Support user defined reference types
* Add/Delete/Edit reference types
* Allow different view modes (view all/by reference type/selected references/unselected references)

* Allow flexible displayed fields
* Generate bibliography from selected references

When I've tried to compile this application using "./configure --prefix=/opt/kde", I got an error saying

Add the following line at the beginning of kbib/kbibdoc.cpp:

#include <algorithm>

and change line #include <fstream.h> to

#include <fstream>

in kbib/scholarsearcher.cpp. This works for me.

Hi there, this is a great piece of software, I think.

Any work in progress / plans for a KDE 4 version?

Hi me too interested to get kbib working on kde4. I do not want to install kde3 libs for compiling. I have been using it extensively for research publication and citation management.

I would be glad, If I can help in conversion.

This is a very nice piece of software. As a mathematician, I would find it very useful if queries to the mathscinet database (http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/index.html) were also implemented.

Great, support of mathscinet is available in the latest version. Thanks!
Now, I'm only hoping that there will soon be a kde4 version :) .

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.
