Docear’s Online Services Are Down (Recommendation; User Registration; Backup)

Currently, all of Docear’s online services are down. This means, you cannot register, log-in to download backups, or receive recommendations. As we have no time right now for the development of Docear, we are afraid that we won’t be able to fix this problem anytime soon. However, we adjusted the current version of Docear (v1.2) to dynamically deal with this situation. This means, as long as the services are down, the recommendation button is not shown and the registration dialog is not shown when installing Docear for the first time. As soon as the services are up again, all the buttons etc. are automatically shown again.

Update 2017-07-20: Probably, we will not activate the current recommender system again but hopefully integrate Mr. DLib, which is a recommender system as a service.

Update 2017-08-24: Please note that for the foreseeable future we will not continue the development of Docear as we have not enough funding and time.

    Should I start using Docear? It’s future doesn’t look too bright.

  • Will the upcoming 1.2 version include the latest JabRef? I appreciate your efforts on this project.

    sorry to ask here but didn’t find the proper place: Docear’s Real Highlights function (importing automatically highlighted text from PDF (using PDF X-Change Viewer)) is still not working? It is crucial to whom has to read 200+ article, take annotations and write a draft. How can I solve the problem? Is there a different approach than do it manually? Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
    Good job, thanks for the best software in the field.

  • i like docear, fighting! 🙂

    I have just found Docear and I have no words to describe how important and interesting this tool is, not just for me but for the academic world. I wish I could apply to some of your Ph.D. programmes or jobs, but unfortunately I am no programmer and do not have the skills required.

    Thanks for this innovation and dedication. This is what the community really needs
    I hope you get the funding ASAP!

    In 4 past years I used Qiqqa in Windows for my PhD thesis. I think Qiqqa is a very nice system for reference management, But after I migrated to linux because there is not linux version for Qiqqa, I spent many times to find a good reference management system. Now I appreciate for this great job. I decide to use Docear+Zotero for writing my thesis. I would like this nice and useful project continue and Continue and CONTINUE.
