I have come across this soft which seem to me heavily inspired in Scrivener. I wonder wether a similar support for scientific papers would be possible in scrivener.

I am testing it and to me it can’t compete with Scrivener in the initial stages, but when you reach the submission phase you just import your text in Manuscripts instead of Word and fix the layout, references, etc (provided they fix layouts for the journals you want to publish in).

It’s a complement to Scrivener, not a competitor.

And it works primarily with Papers3 reference app, so you need to have that as well.
