Mendeley Desktop

Mendeley is a desktop / web program that can be used to assist in your research. It is called a “reference manager and an academic social network”.
You can organize research papers, share them with your research group, annotate documents, find meta-data about the paper automatically (yes! the software actually searches the web and finds information about the paper you are reading – AND – you can get the metadata in the format you want for citation!!), and so much more. This is a truly fantastic research tool! Try it out.

If you don’t like to use MS Word for all your research related writing, but don’t want to use a command line version of LaTeX too, you can settle for a very good compromise! Here’s TeXstudio, a LaTeX editor – it is cross-platform and open source.
