Journal names & Upper case

I have the following problem - some of the journals are written in upper case, some are not (they are coming from different websites from “download citation”). When I want to use an entry in my tex file, the bibliography becomes
a. gigantic because half of an entry is upper case
b. really messy, because every entry looks differently.

Therefore, I would like to ask, if it is possible to make all the journals look the same (capitalize only the first letter)?

I have two entries from the same journal:

author = {Zhang, Youmin and Jiang, Jin},
title = {Bibliographical review on reconfigurable fault-tolerant control systems},
year = {2008},
language = {English},
volume = {32},
number = {2},
month = {DEC},
pages = {229-252},
issn = {1367-5788},
doi = {10.1016/j.arcontrol.2008.03.008},


author = {Jin Jiang and Xiang Yu},
title = {Fault-tolerant control systems: A comparative study between active and passive approaches},
year = {2012},
volume = {36},
number = {1},
pages = {60 - 72},
issn = {1367-5788},
journal = {Annual Reviews in Control},

I would like to have the name of the journal look like journal = {Annual Reviews in Control}.

I know you can change every entry manually, but I would like to avoid it, if possible.
Thank you!

Quality -> Clean-Up entries is your friend.
At the bottom of the window, add something like journal and Sentence case.
(and you may want to remove the other field formaters)


Title Case might be an even better match as this formatter capitalizes all words except articles and prepositions.
