Papers is a nice application that allows you to have all your papers and other documents in one place. The program lets you organize your papers and other documents that you consider important in multiple folders, so you can easily find them. Not only can you store the papers written by you, but also papers written by other people. You can easily add the author, source, title, year, among any other information. This can help you find them more easily, and if you want, you can also search them by keyword.

When you finish installing the application, you can select an area of research, and the program will suggest a list of papers that you can download from well-known sources such as Google Books, OAlster and Wikipedia. Moreover, you can later search for more papers by entering a keyword and selecting the sources you want. You can have a preview of the papers or articles and then you can select whether you wish to import them to your library or not. Once in your library, you will be able to see a general view of the paper on the right side of the screen, and you can customize any other information you want. The papers can be read in full screen and you can print them or send them by email. You can also add notes, keywords, labels, and you can even rate them.Sadly, the program lacks document annotations such as highlighting, drawing tools, and other, which could help you mark important parts in papers. The program offers a very clean and organized user interface that won't give you any trouble.

To sum up, if you are looking for an application that helps you find papers and keep them organized in one place, Papers can be an excellent choice.
