I've uploaded the script to http://ww2.lafayette.edu/~basus/paperorg
No comments, but it should be fairly self-explanatory. Keeping pdfs, bibtex
and org notes files connected was a problem that I solved with some low-tech
organization. My pdfs, orgs and bibtex keys all have the same format:

<publication><year>-<first author>

That way I can have the script easily pull together the different
information sources because they have the same unique identifier (without
the extension). This approach means that I don't see the paper title or any
other information in the file manager. I basically use Emacs as the
paper-organization interface, which is really nice since I can use tags and
the like to separate out the papers while keeping them in one place if I
need to find them.

I have one such setup for each research project, though in theory I could
just use one large org-file as a complete paper database. But I feel that
would be putting all my eggs in one basket, so that's not something I'd be
comfortable doing.

I would like to get org mode to open the PDF links in an external viewer as
opposed to in Emacs with doc-view as it does now. Any suggestions on how to
do this?
