Docear is what the developers call an academic literature suite. Comparable to Microsoft Office, which bundles several applications for office workers, Docear bundles several applications for academics. As of now, these applications are BibTeX based reference management, mind mapping, and some pdf management capabilities. For the future, Docear is supposed to integrate a word processor, PDF editor and academic search engine. User feedback so far has been highly positive . Docear is written in Java, licensed under the GNU General Public License and based on the open source software Freeplane and JabRef. The term Docear has two meanings. First, it is pronounced the same way as dog-ear, the folded down corner of a paper page. Second, docear in Latin means I would be taught.
