With Smart Reference Manager you can easily write down your notes about what you read and study, organized by several criteria, like sources and authors.
This is not an app for academics, but for all of us who like to study and learn, and want a way to keep track of things. We could say this is a Knowledge Manager.
- Register text notes easily; - Find notes in no time; - Swiping navigation; - Organize data by authors, sources, publications, themes, subjects and knowledge areas; - Instant list filtering; - Data backup to your desktop; - Really easy and nice to use;
Here are some useful questions and answers.
1. What do you mean by sources?
Sources are the documents to which you want to reference. Can be all sorts you things, like an article, a book chapter, a book, a video, etc.
2. And publications?
Publications are the sources parents. For instance, source may be a book chapter, and the publication the book itself; or source may be an article, and the publication the respective journal or magazine.
3. How can I filter notes easily?
If you want, for example, to see all the notes in a source, just go to the sources list, and click the one you want. Similarly, to have all notes related to some author, just go to the authors list, long-click in the name, and select Notes. Another example: to select all notes in a subject, go to the theme lists, and click that subject.
4. How to edit, for instance, a source or an author?
Go to the sources or authors list, long-click the item, and choose Edit.
5. What about Knowledge Areas?
Just an optional extra layer for your references organization. These can be the broadest areas that you separate your content with. Using Knowledge is just like having separated apps, one for each area. Go to the sources or authors list, long-click the item, and choose Edit.
6. Can I backup my data?
Yes! Go to Settings | Backup, and click Save data to card.
This will save to sd card, in directory Smart Reference Manager, a copy of your database named smartreferencemanager.db.sqlite. Then, you can save the file wherever you want, or even inspect it and change it with an sqlite editor. However, do not change the directory and file names and locations, if you want to use the import facility.
To retrieve a database use Import data from card. But be careful. Importing the database means you are completely replacing the data with the card file. If you have manipulated the file and made some mistake, you can lose all your data! Remember also that if you do an import of an old file, you lose data introduced meanwhile. So, use with care.
