The Check Integrity function I use is in JabRef 4.1 (the latest). I'd suggest making sure your bibtex file is 100% bibtex as follows: 1. In JabRef, create a new "bibtex" library. 2. Copy all the entries from the existing "biblatex" library and paste them in the library created above. 3. Run "Quality > Check Integrity" and resolve any "biblatex field only" issues. 4. Save the library as the converted "bibtex" library. Cheers, C.
