Docear is a free writing tool that includes mind-mapping and reference manager software. What makes Docear so great to use for writing is that notes and highlighted quotes you create in the .pdf files of your downloaded articles automatically appear in your mind map.
Other great features of Docear:
The ability to search Google Scholar and directly import articles you find interesting
Articles you’ve selected automatically appear in the reference manager
You can easily search for sources using tags or key words to locate that quote you need
Separate from notes in the .pdf, you can also create and assign notes to anything in the mind map
A Docear4Word feature (only for Windows) that is a Word add-in that allows you to insert references and bibliographies from the reference manager based on the Citation Style Language (CSL), the same one that Zotero, Mendeley and Papers for Mac use
Learn how getting started with your writing project will be easy when everything you want to share is right there in front of you, visually arranged and referenced.
