Zotero: this is what I was looking for!

Some months ago I get acquainted with latex and I was no more able to leave it. I think that bibtex is one of the most intelligent things researchers have done in order to give a systematic appearance to their activity (which is far from systematic, indeed 😀 ). Unfortunately the way bibtex works and the support it has in some relevant fields like computational biology prevents it from reaching a real spread. Some days ago I came across this tool, it’s named Zotero, I thought: “What a strange name for a citation manager…should I take it seriously!?!”. I should have! Zotero is one of the best REALLY INTEGRATED citation manager I’ve ever seen, with the most powerful functionalities (and, among them, the capability to export citations in a number of different formats, bibtex included!). Zotero allows you to take notes on your documents, to store pdfs and it is able to integrate itself with most commong document editors and blogging platforms. Moreover future developments announced on the official site include bibliographic content sharing and all the stuff that a real research 2.0 application should have. Amazing, isn’t it? You should give it a try!
