Searching within years


(Petr Bednář) #1

Hallo, I have a question concerning searching in Jabref. Is it possible to search for papers in several years? For example if I need to list papers published within years 2005 - 2011. Thanks, Petr

Yes, it is possible. You have to use the regular expression search (a box to check on the search tool bar).
However, the syntax is not straightforward (it is coming from java regex).
For your case, year == 200[5-9]|201[0-1] should work.
Explanation:

  • 200[5-9] specifies years 2005 to 2009.
  • | means or
  • 201[0-1] specifies years 2010 to 2011.
