myCrsf

mind your Classical Scholar Research Framework is a LaTeX / BibTeX / JabRef based collection of readily configured files for managing the whole process of writing a research paper in humanities – including searching and evaluating the secondary literature, maintaining the bibliographical data, generating abstracts and extracts and writing the final work. But all these steps shall follow the rules of the classical scholar research process and writing style.

Initially, I needed a little old-fashioned presentation style for writing some scientific psikeds documents. But while elaborating that framework, it get more an more it’s own life. So, at the end it was time to give the software it’s individual name, license and open Github repository.

Objectives

mycsrf – a collection of prepared files for managing the whole process of writing a research paper in humanities – offers a complete set of BibTeX-, LaTeX- and Makefiles for

  • searching and evaluating secondary literature,
  • for maintaining the bibliographical data,
  • for generating abstracts and extracts and
  • for writing the final work.

The most prominent property of the myCsrf is its’ method for presenting citations in footnotes (or endnotes) following the rules of the classical scholar style as most as possible.

Examples in the package

For demonstrating the usage, myCsrf contains a self explaoining little text about the meaning of classical scholar research texts, in 4 versions:

  • scholar-fono-en.pdf:- brief self-demonstrating English Summary with footnotes
  • scholar-fono-de.pdf :- thoroughly elaborated, self explaining, and self demonstrating German Text with footnotes
  • scholar-enno-en.pdf :- brief self-demonstrating English Summary with endnotes
  • scholar-enno-de.pdf :- thoroughly elaborated, self explaining, and self demonstrating German Text with endnotes

Installation

Before having a successful download you need some “ingredients” …

After fulfilling the perequisites you can download myCsrf.

Then simply unpack the downloaded package: You may extract the package and rename the extracted directory wherever and however you want. For writing your own classical scholar research texts have a look at the myCsrf-README file which explains the usage and configuration of myCsrf.

Utilization

For getting a deeper insight into the utilization of myCsrf, simply read the mycsrf Readme file. (For creating that file, type make README.pdf for in the directory examples/readme.  This is a first outline how to work with myCsrf:

  • For managing your secondary literature, use jabref and the prepared bibfile bib/literature.bib.
  • For configuring jabref import cfg/jabref.pref.xml via the jabref prefrence dialog.
  • For reviewing your gathered bibliographic data, let compile the file tools/litlist.tex.
  • For compiling any LaTeX-file ${NAME}.tex  as dvi or pdf file, open a bash, go to the directory containing the file and call make ${NAME}.dvi or make ${NAME}.pdf.
  • For deleting the LaTeX auxiliary-files, call make clean.
  • For generating an extract / abstract copy and rename extracts/extract.tex  (for example like the bibtexkey(.tex)), open Eclipse/Texlipse, Winefish, Texmaker or vi and start your summarizing work./li>
  • For generating a snippet, which can be included into your main research paper, go to directory snippets, copy and rename snippets/inc.snippet.tex , open Eclipse/Texlipse, Winefish, Texmaker or vi and start your writing work. For reviewing your work, include it into your main research paper or into snippets/frame.tex and let that file be compiled.
