Fetch Bibliographic Data within Emacs

Are you frequently working with bibliographies, e.g. writing LaTeX documents with BibTeX? Finding the references you want to cite, and fetching/inserting the bibliographic data usually involves a number of clicks and database searches. There is an Emacs extension that may help you out here: Pub-Mode streamlines the whole process down to a couple of keystrokes.

Also, as he reported on a conference I attended recently, the author of Pub-Mode is developing a Bibliographic Management System that, amongst other things, automtically fetches the PDF-file of a reference. No more clicking through publishers websites. I’m really waiting for this one!
