Yes.

1) BibTeX is an extension to TeX that manipulates references.  There
are numerous free editors to manipulate these databases.

2) refer is a pre-processor for the nroff document formatting system
(the one manual pages use).  This file format is simpler, and more
widely supported, although I don't know of any *Unix* based editors.
Plenty of Windows/Macintosh/DOS reference managers use it though (my
own 'Refs' uses it, as can both 'WinRefer' and 'EndNote'.

Tim.
