    Any way to import a Mendeley database into JabRef?

    Hey there!
    Yeah, I want to migrate from Mendeley to JabRef. Mendeley is nice, but a citation tool that does not offer a viable way to include page numbers and does not offer the "ibid" function is of no use to me.

    Anybody ever migrated the same way?

    Thanks!

    I think you should select the references by CTL+A or Edit>Select all....

    and File>Export as Bibtex format or RIS or Endnote XML format....(remember the citations marked as "need review" will not be exported)

    I have not used JabRef so I do not know more about that however Jabref site says that it can import any of these formats. If you have tried all these and I am wrong please ignore this...

    As JabRef handles the database in BibTex-format this is the solution I was looking for. Thank you!
