# Interfacing Bibdesk and Journler

I am becoming a mac-running academic, which implies that I need to find the right piece of software for each use. After my switch from Word to LyX/LaTeX, I find out Journler, a note-taking application, that I use to keep track of my thoughts on the publications I read for my lab work. Eventually, I note in it some hypothesis and paragraphs for my soon-to-be Master’s thesis, which implies the use of references.

I wrote an Applescript which allows one to send selected Bibdesk entries into the current (selected) note in Journler, in the form

\cite{key1,key2}

Just put it in the Scripts folder of your Bibdesk application support’s directory.
