JabRef + automatic metadata extraction from PDF files (like Mendeley) I cannot get the pdf metadata import to work with your JabRef. Under File in JabRef select Import into new databaseor Import into current with BibTeX keys can automatically be added to the corresponding entries using. You can set up Jabref to automatically import a reference from Firefox into the current database, but it’s somewhat arcane. Here is my solution.

JabRef + automatic metadata extraction from PDF files (like Mendeley)

Published by Joeran Beel on 16th September However, I always was thinking about switching to Mendeley because they offer automatic extraction of metadata from PDFs which saves lots of jabre when creating your bibliography. But Mendeley is not that compatible with SciPlore MindMapping and has some other shortcomings, so I always sticked with JabRef and accepted the time consuming and annoying task of typing titles, author jabrfe etc.

But now this will change: What does that mean? If you need a PDF for testing take this one. This should definately work. If not, please contact us. And maybe the best thing: Some words about how all this works in detail: The meta data extraction does not take place on your computer but JabRef will transfer your PDF to our server on which it will be analyzed. Our server then jabrec the extracted meta data.

And if your PDF is an article in the field of computer science you have a good chance to get much more information. However, we are constantly improving our algorithms and database. Once we have analyzed it and returned the meta data to you it will be deleted from our server. I just started using JabRef, but cannot get it to load a pdf file at all. When I try to drag and drop it just gives me the empty sign.

I need help badly thanks. Hi, please, can you let us know at which point are we with the possibility to interact with Mendeley from Sciplore? Your answer will make me decide if I need to invest time on this or not. Mendeley can continuously export a BibTeX file which can be read with SciPlore there are some bugs which will be fixed in the next Beta.


But I like the idea and will ask the Mendeley team if they are interested in cooperating in this point. I cannot get the pdf metadata import to work with your JabRef modified version. I am running Kubuntu I tried to use your version of JabRef, everything works fine until after the pdf was detected by Mr.

We hope it will be in the next release. Another question, the video you provided does show very convenient features for big PDF database, but in reality jabfef is no such functions in the latest version. What we can expect for the future? Do you have any fixed date for the full implementation of those functions? There is a stand alone program that does similar thing, though it does require input from the user.

I dont know how well ur solution will work, some pdfs are quite large and imagine if s of users try to upload jaberf s of pdfs at the same time!

I have found that the reality is very few pdf files from the various online databases have metadata, not even the impoort. So I am not sure how useful this impoort be for those in non Computer Science fields. What I do is:. Download pdf files that I find from online databases into a directory that is monitored from my Sciplore Mind Map 2. Change the pdf filename into the title of the pdf paper the document title 3.

Create bookmarks as needed within the pdf file 4.

Download the citation information for the pdf that is usually available on the online database, and import it into Endnote for referencing. If Sciplore Mindmap could retrieve the title field from those pdfs which do have it in metadata, and display that title in the mindmap quto than the original filename, this would save step 2 above which can be a pain with long titles.

If the same downloaded file that contains the citation information for importing into Endnote could also be drag and dropped into the relevant pdf in the MindMap, that would be sensational.

While I would consider moving from Endnote to JabRef if it could give me additional functionality over Endnote, it seems to me that Endnote is fully featured, intuative and straightforward to use and the uni provides it for free and so it would need to be a compelling reason.


Thank you for your suggestions. Regarding the metadata extraction: I am not talking about XMP metadata metadata written by the online databases into the file. Accordingly, we will be able to provide at least some metadata for almost any PDF.

LaTeX and BibTeX

Would you like to drop me an email to discuss this further? Mendeley is using a proprietary data format for references. Because of these reasons we recommend JabRef and we do have the tools for extracting metadata anyway because of our search engine http: So it is no big effort to integrate it into JabRef for us.

Why do you create customized JabRef, not a plugin. It will require additional efforts from JabRef developers to decide and intergrateā€¦ By the way, have you contacted JabRef team discussing your update.

The other thing is the meta-data extracting server. If our tools would be directly integrated into JabRef we would have to release new versions of JabRef every few days. So we have little intention to release some libraries etc. Instead we will offer an easy to use webservice that wuto be used by JabRef and others. Your email address will not be published.

What I do is: Now what would be useful is: I think it would be great if both teams worked together! I understand that ijport would prefer having the metadata being extract locally.
