I initially kept my list of papers (mostly academic) organized in http://delicious.com/ as a set of links and in bibtex so that I can refer to them. But this approach has many shortcomings, not the least of which is the difficulty of maintaining it. I then switched over to using a personal Mediawiki instance to manage it: this has the benefit of storing the paper and any meta-data about it. But this is also slightly painful to maintain.
I recently was introduced to the following:
- Papers: http://mekentosj.com/papers/
- Zotero: http://www.zotero.org/
- Medeley: http://www.mendeley.com/
Does anyone have experience using any of these services to manage your papers? Any recommendations?
