Effective management of bibliographic information and citations of relevant work in an appropriate manner is considered as an integral part of all scholarly articles. To ease the process of literature management and to facilitate researchers, several reference managers have been developed offering different features. Almost all reference managers support extraction of metadata from articles but unfortunately very few provide facility of extraction of full-text from articles, their sub sections search and parsing of citations. Being a researcher, management of references is one of the most complicated aspects. Thus to smooth the progress of researchers, scholarly articles organizer is introduced in this paper as an extension of already developed open source reference manager Jab Ref. The proposed extension of Jab Ref basically performs the management, organization and processing of academic papers. And it has the special features of content reading, metadata extraction, citation parsing, relevant Bib TeX entry fetching and linking of In-Cite and Out-Cite information. Keeping in view the fact that scholarly objects basically represent research output in the form of metadata, parsed contents and citations. Accompanying Bib TeX entries with scholarly objects is really important because it can be easily handled by the end-users and can be read automatically by many repositories and several other tools. Thus the key inspiration behind the designing of the proposed add-on is to enhance the functionality of Jab Ref by reducing the complexities involve in handling academic literature and simplifying the process.
