Importing From CiteSeer

CiteSeer is a scientific literature digital library and search engine that focuses primarily on the literature in computer and information science.

Importing An Entry From CiteSeer

JabRef can download information about a particular citation from the CiteSeer database. To start this process, add a new entry into your database and populate the citeseerurl field with a link to its content page on CiteSeer. The citeseerurl field must be in one of the following formats:[.html], or
oai:CiteSeerPSU:DDDDDD, or

where DDDDD is a sequence of digits. To find the sequence of digits (DDDDD) for a CiteSeer entry, goto the citation's document page of the format and click on the (Update) link for this citation. The URL for the Update link will contain the numeric ID for this citation.

Once you have populated the citeseerurl field, you may download the CiteSeer fields by selecting BibTex -> Import Fields from CiteSeer. Make sure you have selected the row(s) you wish to update.

Generating a Citation Database

Given a set of references, you can generate a list of documents that cite the elements of this set. To facilitate this feature, each citation in a database must have a citeseerurl field with the format specified in Importing An Entry From CiteSeer. To use this feature, select Web Search -> Fetch Citations from CiteSeer.

Using a Proxy Server

If you need to use an http proxy server, pass the server name and port number to java at runtime. These environment settings are documented at

java -Dhttp.proxyHost="hostname" -Dhttp.proxyPort="portnumber"
