Manage PDF Documents with gPapers
If you struggle to keep tabs on PDF documents scattered all over your hard disk, then the gPapers tool can come in rather handy. Described as "iTunes for PDFs", this Gnome-based application sports a few clever features that can help you to manage PDF documents with consummate ease. Here is what you can do with gPapers:
- Search, download, and import PDFs from ACM, IEEE, PubMed and CiteSeer.
- Manage relations between authors, papers, organizations, sources, publishers.
- Organize papers into collections.
- Search your local library, including full metadata and text extracted from PDFs.
- Annotate PDF documents.
- Save searches as "smart playlists".
- Rate papers and authors on quality.
gPapers is available as a source distribution only, so installing it requires some manual work. Fortunately, you can find a detailed description of the installation on the project's Google Code page.comments powered by Disqus
