Markdown and DVCS can change the way we collaborate. Even for those pesky journals that require a submission in Word format, you can do the majority of your work in Markdown and then convert to Word via pandoc (and if need be LibreOffice to convert .odt/.docx to .doc). However, a common bibliography is still difficult to pull off. The Makefile and scripts here automagically extract the relevant pandoc references from the specified BibTeX library and create a minimal local BibTeX file that you can include in your repository.

This was inspired by and expands upon the ideas in this blog post.
