Creating chapters from books/collections

I often have to add several chapters from the same edited volume. It would be ideal if Jabref had an easy way of starting such entries.

One such way to implement this would be add a “create chapter from entry” option if you right click on entries, which could create an entry that has the entry type associated with the original entry type (inbook for book, incollection for collection, etc) and the citationkey from the original entry added to the crossref field.

Please vote if you support this proposal:

  • I would like to have this feature, too!
  • I don’t care.

This (or at least a very similar) feature has been requested before. See here for the related github issue. Would be cool to have the crossref workflow improved! :slight_smile:

Oh good, thanks for linking this! I couldn’t find it on the forum; didn’t think to check it on github
