Docear

Docear

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. These applications are BibTeX based reference management, mind mapping, and some pdf management capabilities.

Docear works seemlessly with many existing tools like Mendeley, Microsoft Word, and Foxit Reader.

Docear is based on Freeplane, open source mind mapping software, and integrates JabRef, the open source reference manager.
