Okay, then I should definitely take a look at JabRef. Anyhow, maybe I'm naive here, but I don't see a reason why Zotero should support BibTeX Strings. If I type the BibTeX file manually, sure. But Zotero reads the (e.g.) Journal names from the corresponding websites, so there should be no need

I hope my question does not come off as too aggressive, but why on earth are we still using BibTeX? Or, more accurately, when can we _stop_ using BibTeX and move onto something that has native UTF-8 support and can also integrate with a reasonable configuration environment such as CSL? What is

What is the next step for bibliographies in Context? Surely we won't be chained to BibTeX (which has seemingly been largely been in practice for the sake of BibLaTeX) forever? Perhaps Biber (http://biblatex-biber.sourceforge.net/) could fill the void. It supports Unicode, is BibTeX compatible

Hi Paul, I recently switched from Papers (Mac only, commercial) to JabRef. Advantages: JabRef is open source, and I can use it at work (Macs) and at home (Linux). I like it -- it has everything I need (searching PubMed etc., managing a collection of pdf-files...). Cheers, Jörg Quoting

using ConTeXt and not LaTeX you maybe also use a nice reference management software the main stream does not know about. But probably it is not related to ConTeXt at all since it is BibTeX in the end. I can warmly recommend Zotero. It works very well and can fetch content directly from web pages

Dear ConTeXt folks, using ConTeXt and not LaTeX you maybe also use a nice reference management software the main stream does not know about. But probably it is not related to ConTeXt at all since it is BibTeX in the end. I found a comparison in Wikipedia [1] and consider to use JabRef.
