I have started a brand new research from start of the year. I would like to know what are the easiest way of keeping track of the academic papers, journals and authors.
I use sites like Google Scholar, informatik.uni-trier.de for discovery of articles and following interesting conferences and people. I have used sites and tools like Mendeley and ResearchGate. I quite like the sites, but I am too reluctant to use them as for each of them I need to find everything by myself, create my own library to suit my interests.
I already got a warning by the stackexchange system saying The question you're asking appears subjective and is likely to be closed. but it would be great help if someone could explain some tools/software which do this?
Summarizing my questions:
- How do you keep track of academic papers, authors effectively?
- Are there any tools that can search/scrap the internet by some keywords/name and keep track of them? [I know of Google alerts, what I seek is some kind of tool with a management interface]
