I am currently a final year BSc(Hons) Computer Science student at
Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.  For my final year dissertation, I
am  researching the problems associated with the BibTeX standard for
bibliographic data and developing an RDF based data format for
bibliographic data, which would overcome these problems.

As a user of BibTex:

Do you have any experiences of where BibTeX is cumbersome to use
and/or inaccurate?

Are there any references that BibTeX does not handle very well?

Are there any other problems that you have come across?

More information on this project is available at
http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~ceerdl/Dissertation. A current copy of the
'work in progress' is also available.  Please do feel free to email me
with any suggestions or othere relevant information.  Any
contributions will, of course, be acknowledged.
