PaperPile – a referencing system that works within Google Docs

More and more recently I find myself using Google Docs instead of MS Word. The collaborative features far outweigh the limited functionality that it brings relative to MS Word. But when it comes to writing papers (up until now) I have always went back to the old reliable, using either the plugins from RefWorks or EndNote to help with my referencing. Today at the DCU Summit I was introduced to PaperPile. I’m very impressed and look forward to testing it out over the next few weeks for my 30 day free trial. Then I will start the haggling with the vendors for consortium based pricing. The video below gives a nice introduction to Paperpile but if you need more information contact them on https://twitter.com/pprpile I’d be very surprised if you are not impressed.
