RefManageR: Straightforward 'BibTeX' and 'BibLaTeX' Bibliography Management

Provides tools for importing and working with bibliographic references. It greatly enhances the 'bibentry' class by providing a class 'BibEntry' which stores 'BibTeX' and 'BibLaTeX' references, supports 'UTF-8' encoding, and can be easily searched by any field, by date ranges, and by various formats for name lists (author by last names, translator by full names, etc.). Entries can be updated, combined, sorted, printed in a number of styles, and exported. 'BibTeX' and 'BibLaTeX' '.bib' files can be read into 'R' and converted to 'BibEntry' objects. Interfaces to 'NCBI Entrez', 'CrossRef', and 'Zotero' are provided for importing references and references can be created from locally stored 'PDF' files using 'Poppler'. Includes functions for citing and generating a bibliography with hyperlinks for documents prepared with 'RMarkdown' or 'RHTML'.
