@thesis entry type

Dear Community,

in my work, I need to cite also BSc and ‘habilitation’ theses (‘habilitation’ is a kind of second PhD thesis that is done e.g. in Germany). Ideally, I could use the '@'thesis entry type and differentiate these different types of thesis with the “type” field. I do however not find the option to create this '@'thesis entry type in the GUI of JabRef - only the '@'PhdThesis and '@'MastersThesis. Is the '@'thesis type not supported by JabRef?

Kind regards and thank you

(I needed to convert @ to ‘@’ so that the forum would not think those are links to people in the forum.)

'@'Thesis is not a standard entry type for BibTeX; but it is for biblatex.
Hence, if you create a file in biblatex mode, you will have the entry type Thesis.
