I have been dreaming of organizing academic literature digitally and keeping it “ready to cite.” I have tried Mendeley, ReadCube, Zotero, Papers (Mac) and more… but could not find something ideal for me. Maybe I was not patient enough, but now I really need to get this done before I take my prelim. Some of the systems may have been significantly updated since I used them.
I propose a “Play” session for digital citation management systems. Although I have survived my coursework with manual citation, I believe that my final paper writing would be way easier with such a system! I now hope to meet people who can share their experience, either good or bad, while playing any of these systems.
