RePEc as a bibliographic tool

RePEc is a scheme to collect bibliographic information about publication and pre-publications in Economics. Publishers provide all the relevant information, which is then displayed in various ways by RePEc services. This allows users to have access to this data. While it is useful to find items of research while browsing or searching through these services, it is even better when one can upload the relevant bibliographic data directly into one’s bibliographic tool.

Every abstract page on IDEAS has links that allow to download such bibliographic information in various formats: as a HTML citation, a plain text citation, the BibTeX entry familiar to LaTeX users, the RIS format used in various software like EndNote, and the ReDIF format used by RePEc. For registered authors, it is also possible to obtain these records for all their publications in one download. If other formats are used in the research community, they can be provided as well. Just ask.
