From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
WIKINDX is a free bibliographic and quotations/notes management and article authoring system designed either for single use (on a variety of operating systems) or multi-user collaborative use across the internet.
Developed under the GNU GPL license, the project homepage can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wikindx/ and the required files/updates are available for download there.
WIKINDX is written in PHP and supports standards and formats such as BibTeX, Endnote and RTF
- can manage bibliographic data allowing the user to search through them with an accuracy and speed that cannot be duplicated with index cards.
- enables the user to store unlimited quotes, paraphrases and thoughts and to efficiently cross-reference them in a searchable database.
- is free, stable and open source.
- supports non-English multi-byte character sets.
- runs on all major operating systems (*NIX, Mac OS X, Windows).
- runs not only on a desktop computer but also on a web server so the user can access her bibliography from any networked point or share a bibliography with her research team.
- allows multiple attachments for each bibliographic resource.
- can export the user's bibliography in various bibliographic styles (APA, Chicago, IEEE for example).
- allows the user to edit or create bibliographic styles through a graphical interface.
- integrates a WYSIWYG word processor with easy importation of quotes etc. so that the user can write an article, from draft through to publication with automatic citation formatting, entirely within the one software.
- at the click of a mouse button will reformat the user's article to another citation style whether that style uses footnotes, endnotes or in-text citation.
- import and export bibliographies freely between BibTeX and Endnote and export annotated bibliographies to RTF.
- may be run in single-user mode or multi-user mode.
- has an architecture that enables the addition of plug-ins to expand the capabilities of WIKINDX.
- PHP >= 4.3
- MySQL >= 3.23
- A web server
The WIKINDX is accessed through a graphical web browser. The requirement for a web server does not mean that WIKINDX can only be run off a ISP; you can run WIKINDX locally on the same computer you use to view it with but must have a web server installed on that computer.
