Paper Abstract RefManageR provides tools for importing and working with bibliographic references. It greatly enhances the bibentry class in R by providing a class BibEntry which stores BibTeX and BibLaTeX references, supports UTF-8 encoding, and can be easily searched by any field, by date ranges, and by various formats for name lists (author by last names, translator by full names, etc.) using R’s person class (Hornik, Murdoch, and Zeileis 2012). Entries can be updated, combined, sorted, printed in a number of styles, and exported. BibTeX (Patashnik 1988) and BibLaTeX (Lehman et al. 2016) .bib files can be read into R and converted to BibEntry objects. Interfaces to NCBI’s Entrez, CrossRef, and Zotero are provided for importing references and references can be created from locally stored PDFs using Poppler. Includes functions for citing and generating a bibliography with hyperlinks for documents prepared with RMarkdown or RHTML. A vignette is available to further demonstrate all functionality (McLean 2014).
