I'd recommend looking at WinRefer before you shell out too much cash.
I tried version 2.0 and was pretty impressed by it.  I don't remember
if it is free or cheap shareware. Version 2.1 hasn't appeared at
ftp.cica.indiana.edu ( yet but they have deleted the old
version from /pub/pc/win3/util so it should come soon.

I've just loaded a slightly amended version of WinRefer into the
uploads directory of CICA as winrefer.zip.  We are now at version 2.1.

WinRefer is a reference management system running under Windows 3.x
(preferably 3.1).  It is intended for people writing books or papers
who want to search a database of references for citations.

WinRefer supports the following features:

	o	simple but flexible user interface
	o	support for a number of popular reference
		database file formats
	o	keyword and expression-based searching
	o	database indexing
	o	user-defined formatting conventions(*)
	o	bibliography generation
	o	plain text and Microsoft RTF formatting
	o	a DDE control interface
	o	ca template for use with Word for Windows(*)

Items marked (*) are new to this version, or have been extended.

WinRefer can deal with Unix refer, Chemical Abstracts, Medline and
Bath Information and Data Services (ISI) format reference databases -
BibTeX and ProCite support should be coming soon!
