JabRef is a graphical frontend to manage BibTeX databases, the standard LaTeX bibliography reference format. JabRef is build to be platform independant (requires Java 1.4.2 or newer). It merges and extends the functionalities of BibKeeper (Morten O. Alver) and JBibtexManager (Nizar Batada).

What's New

Version 2.10:
  • Made IEEEXploreFetcher author parsing work again.
  • Added a few more characters in the HTML/Unicode to LaTeX conversion.
  • Find unlinked files tool doesn't always use PDF content importer any more, but the dialog opened when a file is dropped into JabRef.
  • Uninstaller doesn't delete whole directory any more. Fixes bugs 1142, 1175, 1212.


  • OS X 10.4 or later
  • Java 1.6 or later

Using OS 10.8.4 on an iMac and a MacbookPro with Safari 6.0.5 I have repeatedly downloaded JabRef 2.9.2, and 2.9, from MacUpdate and from SourceForge, and always when I try to run it gives the message that it is damaged and must be trashed. I am sure that if I could run it I could give a good rating, but I cannot run it.
