Zotero, Mendeley & Endnote

Since I’ve been doing research for my master, I have to spend lots of time reading journal and conference papers. The problem is organizing these papers.

I did a little research to find some ways to automate the tedious task of downloading paper,organizing by author,date,conference and so on.

I found some tools which are


It is a good citation tool which is multiplatform and can synchronize your library across your machines. The free account only offers 300 MB webstorage. That’s the only problem I found and I starts with Zotero.


Mendley is the tool I jumped after I run out of Zotero web space. Importing zotero database to Mendley is super easy and also works well with multi-platforms. Tab based UI is more convenient and also possible to search withinn the application. Another feature I love is correcting the citation and detailed information of documents.


EndNote is a commerical tool with 30 days trial. Not available for Linux platform. period. That’s not what I am looking for. Free is good. Free is the best.

Now,I am synchronize zotero and mendeley to get the most out of these tools. Anyway,these tools save my life.
