Description:

The bibutils program set interconverts between various bibliography formats using a common MODS-format XML intermediate. For example, one can convert RIS-format files to Bibtex by doing two transformations: RIS->MODS->Bibtex. By using a common intermediate for N formats, only 2N programs are required and not N²-N. These programs operate on the command line and are styled after standard UNIX-like filters.

I primarily use these tools at the command line, but they are suitable for scripting and have been incorporated into a number of different bibliographic projects.

Programs:

bib2xml - convert BibTeX to MODS XML intermediate
biblatex2xml - convert BibLaTeX to MODS XML intermediate
copac2xml - convert COPAC format references to MODS XML intermediate
end2xml - convert EndNote (Refer format) to MODS XML intermediate
endx2xml - convert EndNote XML to MODS XML intermediate
isi2xml - convert ISI web of science to MODS XML intermediate
med2xml - convert Pubmed XML references to MODS XML intermediate
modsclean - a MODS to MODS converter for testing puposes mostly
ris2xml - convert RIS format to MODS XML intermediate
xml2ads - convert MODS XML intermediate into Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO)/National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Astrophyics Data System or ADS reference format (converter submitted by Richard Mathar)
xml2bib - convert MODS XML intermediate into BibTeX
xml2end - convert MODS XML intermediate into format for EndNote
xml2isi - convert MODS XML intermediate to ISI format
xml2ris - convert MODS XML intermediate into RIS format
xml2wordbib - convert MODS XML intermediate into Word 2007 bibliography format
