Papers 3.4.3 is an application that bundles all the great technologies that come with Mac OS X to give you a complete new workflow for reading scientific articles. You can find, download, archive, and organize all your articles within a single application. But that is just the start, using spotlight you instantly find back the paper you are looking for. Read it full-screen, add your notes, and then send a copy to one of your colleagues. These are just a few of the many features that after using them yourself you will never want to give up again. Do you also have dozens of PDF files from your favorite scientific articles scattered in the form of PDF files on your hard drive? Do you also try to desperately archive them by renaming and organizing them in folders? But like the piles of printed articles on your desk, you can’t keep up with all the new papers you download and despite all your efforts it has become impossible to find that one article back. Finally that all belongs to the past now.
We’ve been there, trust us, we know. That’s why we wrote Papers, our latest application exclusively for the Mac. Papers will revolutionize the way you deal with scientific papers. Search for papers using PubMed, directly retrieve and archive PDFs, and read and study them all from within Papers, your personal library of Science.
