JabRef is highly customizable and adapts to you, not the other way around.

If you want to dive even deeper, have a look at the advanced information about JabRef.

JabRef is developed and maintained by a multidisciplinary core team of PhD students, postdocs, and researchers in industry who work on JabRef in their freetime. Without the support of numerous volunteers, none of this would have been possible. We welcome anyone who would like to contribute to be part of an active user and developer community!
