Installed Zotero today

Zotero is an open source reference management software. It can be used to collect, organize, cite, and share the research sources. I have installed its version 4.0 as Firefox extension. It seems to have a lot of features, which I would explore in coming days.

Before installing Zotero, I also looked at Docear. Docear (“dog-ear”) is an academic literature suite containing digital library with support for pdf documents, reference manager, note taking and with mind maps taking a central role.Its latest version is 1.0 RC2. It seems to be an excellent tool for those who would like to use mind mapping to organize their collection of research sources. I was not sure so deferred its installation and instead installed Zotero.
Docear (“dog-ear”) is an academic literature suite. It integrates everything you need to search, organize and create academic literature into a single application: digital library with support for pdf documents, reference manager, note taking and with mind maps taking a central role. What’s more, Docear works seamlessly with many existing tools like Mendeley, Microsoft Word, and Foxit Reader. Docear is free and open source, based on Freeplane, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Technology and developed by scientists from around the world, among others from OvGU, and the University of California, Berkeley. - See more at: http://www.docear.org/#sthash.DcF7Eydp.dpuf

You can also use Docear and Zotero together if you like :-)
