One thing that is a pain in the ass is that some journals want the
words in the journal titles to be title case (i.e., upper case for
all words except 'the', 'of', etc.), while others want only the first
word of the title capitalized. I have created two perl scripts to
go back and forth between lower case and title case.
In each case, make sure to leave off the .bib from the file name.
- The perl code file uc.pl
takes file.bib, converts all journal titles to title case and saves
to fileU.bib (leaving file.bib unmodified). One invokes the code using
perl uc.pl file
- The perl code lc.pl
takes file.bib, converts all journal titles to lower case, and overwrites
it, but saves a copy to file.bib.save. It is invoked as
perl lc.pl file
