When writing academic papers or research reports, it is often necessary to cite other papers or books, and serious academic journals have different specification for bibliography style. Therefore, editing and formatting the content and style of bibliography often take up a lot of time. In fact, these tasks do not have much substantive value for paper writing, and should be completed automatically.
For this goal, Lattics has innovatively designed and developed bibliography man - agement, editing, citation and automatic formatting features, which will greatly improve the efficiency of paper and report writing.
There are many formats for bibliography, the more commonly include BibTex, RIS, and EndNote, which are easily available on academic journal or pre-print websites.
Copy them on the web page, then create a new bibliography in the project outline of Lattics, paste the bibliography text into the pop-up editing window, and when the content is recognized as a supported bibliography format, you can save it as a Bib file.
Lattics will automatically parse and create fields in bibliography, such as Title, Author, Keywords, Type, Time, DOI, ISBN, PMID, arXiv and other IDs.
Bibliography files can be imported in batches by dragging them into the project outline, or through the import function of the project outline. Currently supported bibliography for‐ mats are: BibTex, RIS, and EndNote.
Created and imported bibliographies can be managed like other files. You can drag and drop them in the project outline or the Graph to adjust their hierarchical position. You can also mark them with Tags (keywords) and manage them through Tags.
Lattics can automatically read the metadata from the PDF file as a bibliography field. Usually the title and author can be obtained easily, but IDs such as DOI and arXiv need to be completed by yourself. You can fulfill and edit them in the extension info interface of PDF.
Excerpt PDF content as Cards:
Open the PDF in Lattics and select part of the text to add it as a card. Cards created through this will have PDF link info in their extension info. You can click the link to open the PDF and locate the page of the excerpt.
Bibliography Cited in the Articles:
Bibliography can be cited by @ in the articles or cards.
Add a Bibliography Block into Article:
Bibliography Block can be added into articles using the / shortcut key. After adding the bibliography block, if there are cited bibliography in the article, they will be automatically displayed as bibliography style, such as cards excerpted from PDF, PDF files, Bib files.
In editing the article, when the location of the citation changes, the bibliography list will be automatically changed, and the citation number will also be automatically updated.
The styles of bibliography can be adjusted freely. Lattics has built-in more than 10 com‐ mon journal CSL styles, which can be switched in the bibliography block.
Bibliography block can be converted into text to facilitate editing text and proofreading.
Custom Bibliography Templates: There are so many journals that we cannot create their bibliography styles one by one, so Lattics adopts the CSL bibliography specification. You can download more CSL tem‐ plates and import them into Lattics, or you can refer to a CSL template and modify the XML parameters to develop your own style.
