Sciwheel (formerly F1000Workspace)

Sciwheel is a reference manager to add citations and references to your work in Microsoft Word and Google Docs. The tool consists of a web-based application, a browser extension to quickly add new information to your “library” of saved articles, an installed application that includes a plugin for Microsoft Word, a means to add PDFs from your computer to Sciwheel, and a “reading list”.

To get started, go to f1000workspace.com and create an account using your UCSF email.
