Create and revise bibtex entries from DBLP.

Project description


Create and revise bibtex entries from DBLP.



The package can be installed from PyPI with:

pip install bibtex-dblp


Importing new publications from DBLP

The script bin/ searches for a new publication on DBLP and adds the corresponding bibtex entry to the bibliography.


import_dblp [--query QUERY] [--out OUT] [--format {condensed,standard,crossref}]

If the argument --query is not given, the search keywords can be given directly in the terminal. The script then queries the DBLP API and displays the possible matches. The correct publication can be selected in the terminal (or 0 for abort). The bibtex entry of the selected publication is either appended to the given bibliography (if --out is provided) or displayed on the terminal.

For more options see:

import_dblp --help

Converting between DBLP formats

The script bin/ converts the complete bibliography between different DBLP formats (condensed, standard, crossref).


convert_dblp INPUT_BIB [--out OUTPUT_BIB] [--format {condensed,standard,crossref}]

All bibtex entries with either the field biburl given or a bibtex name corresponding to a DBLP id are automatically converted. All other entries are left unchanged.

For more options see:

convert_dblp --help
