Reference Creator – version 1.1 – Windows 32/64bit (latest version)

Reference Creator is developed only for Windows.

Any MATLAB software requires the MATLAB Compile Runtime (MRC) in order to run in a machine without MATLAB. f you don’t have the MRC already (which is highly likely) don’t worry, the setup will download it for you. MRC is quite heavy (420 MB), so it may take long time to install.

The first time you run the application it may take a long time to start. Just be patient as this does not mean it has frozen!

LATEST VERSION: 1.1 – 17/07/14

  • When the user clicks “Find!”, a rough time estimation for the reference list creation is shown.
  • In the previous versions, the citations with et al. (with the dot) were not recognized. This has been fixed now.
  • In the previous versions, the number of double matches (and the related warnings) were overestimated. This happened because Mendeley may have more than one version of the same paper, leading the software to think that there are two papers with the same year and author list. This has now been fixed, and multiple papers with the same doi are excluded.
  • The software has some problems in dealing with special character, like ö or à. I suppose the reason is that MATLAB use the ASCII encoding system. Most of the times, names that contain these characters will not be found.
  • Even thought the citation in the format “Ratcliff (2001, 2002)  are correctly recognized and organized as two different citations, the software cannot match the citations with a letter after the year, as in “Ratcliff (2001a, 2001b)”. In this case, only “Ratcliff (2001)” will be recognized as a citation.
  • I have found at least one article where the in-text citations do not contain a comma after the author’s name, e.g. (Ratcliff 2001). In this case my software does not recognize the citation. I am not sure if I should correct this, because it could bring several false positive.
