If you collaborate with people who use another reference management system or (to a lesser extent) word processor/typesetting program, you know that things can get messy.
I just found out Bibtex4Word, and this could be a good solution:
BibTex4Word is an add-in for Microsoft Word that allows the citation of references from a BibTex database. BibTex4Word will insert a bibliography into your document using your choice formatting style.
It is intended for three types of user:
- LateX users who need to use Microsoft Word. BibTex4Word allows you to use your existing BibTex database and favourite bibliography style.
- Word users who can’t afford a commercial bibliography package but need to insert citations and bibliographies into their documents. Everything you need to manage references is available free.
- Word users who have a commercial bibliography package but who don’t like it. BibTex4Word is lightweight, transparent and doesn’t mess up your documents. It is also free.
Bibtex4Word is GPL’d. the only downside is that it depends on latex, so you might need to install MikTex (http://www.miktex.org/) and use the MikTex package manager to install any style files that you want to use.
