Thanks Matt - I'd agree with this, having seen oddities from google
scholar.  I emailed them ages ago about one problem (formatting of
initials in author names), but never heard back... it is a pity that
there is no mechanism for tidying up their references, as it seems to be
the best thing out there that covers all the fields.

Having said that, if google scholar can save me some typing, I'll
happilyuse it as a starting point for a bibtex entry.  I've just started
using pdfmeat -- this is nice, as given a pdf, it outputs the
corresponding bibtex entry from google scholar.  Probably works similar
to the way zotero does it, but can be used straight from the command


(Warning: I couldn't get one of the python dependencies, unidecode, to
work on mac, but it does work on ubuntu for me.)

If its not too tangential, why do you use biblatex -- is it the future
for bibtex?

Thanks for summarising your workflow, very helpful.
