    • Zotero is a partial alternative for Docear. Docear is an open source blend of mind-mapping and reference management for academic writing. Zotero manages references, like Docear it's integrated to word processing software and has a great browser plugin to extract metadata from articles. But it lacks the mind-mapping component. Docear can integrate with Zotero, too, so you can benefit from the power of both. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

docear seems beautiful. really amazing. but it should be more user friendly. i spent two days before i knew how to use it. now i know and will probably switch from zotero.
