An open-source academic paper management tool.
I'm a computer science PhD student. Conference papers are in major in my research community, which is different from other disciplines. Without DOI, ISBN, metadata of a lot of conference papers are hard to look up (e.g., NIPS, ICLR etc.). When I cite a publication in a draft paper, I need to manually search the publication information of it in Google Scholar or DBLP over and over again.
Why not Zotero, Mendely?
A good metadata scraping capability is one of the core functions of a paper management tool. Unfortunately, no software in this world does this well, not even commercial software.
A modern UI. No extra useless features.
What we need may be to: import a paper, scrape the metadata of it as accurately as possible, simply organise the library, and export it to BibTex when we are writing our papers.
That is Paperlib.
- Scrape paper’s metadata with many scrapers. Support writing your metadata scrapers. Tailored for many disciplines (still growing):
