I've uploaded the script to http://ww2.lafayette.edu/~basus/paperorg
No comments, but it should be fairly self-explanatory. Keeping pdfs, bibtex and org notes files connected was a problem that I solved with some low-tech organization. My pdfs, orgs and bibtex keys all have the same format:

<publication><year>-<first author>

That way I can have the script easily pull together the different information sources because they have the same unique identifier (without the extension). This approach means that I don't see the paper title or any other information in the file manager. I basically use Emacs as the paper-organization interface, which is really nice since I can use tags and the like to separate out the papers while keeping them in one place if I need to find them.

I have one such setup for each research project, though in theory I could just use one large org-file as a complete paper database. But I feel that would be putting all my eggs in one basket, so that's not something I'd be comfortable doing.

I would like to get org mode to open the PDF links in an external viewer as opposed to in Emacs with doc-view as it does now. Any suggestions on how to do this?

I've recently started using org-mode to organize reading notes and to

I have a little trouble with is connecting these three pieces of
information for each reference: bibtex key, pdf file with actual
article, and org file with notes.
