Learnt about the existence of such cool applications from a colleague today.
This is useful information for project work and term papers, reports and dissertations at university. It may also be handy for organising your notes for GP revision. Will need to figure that last idea out.
Here are some such software that have versions for free use, as listed on http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Bibliographic_Software_and_Standards_Information:
- Bibliographix http://www.bibliographix.com/
- Scholar’s Aid http://www.scholarsaid.com/
- Biblioscape (look for the express version) http://www.biblioscape.com
Some bibliography applications also support online collaboration, something that can be really useful.
There’s even a free Office suite for people who don’t want to use Microsoft Office at http://www.openoffice.org/index.html
