Papers -- new app

The people from Mekentosj just added a Sneak Preview to their site about their new program Papers. According to them:

"Do you also have dozens of PDF files from your favorite scientific articles scattered in the form of PDF files on your harddrive? Do you also try to desperately archive them by renaming and organizing them in folders? But like the piles of printed articles on your desk, you can’t keep up with all the new papers you download and despite all your efforts it has become impossible to find that one article back.

Finally that all belongs to the past now. We’ve been there, trust as, we know. That’s why we wrote Papers, our latest application exclusively for the Mac. Papers will revolutionize the way you deal with scientific papers. Search for papers using PubMed, directly retrieve and archive PDFs, and read and study them all from within Papers, your personal library of Science."

It looks very promising.

Papers is now out of beta:

Papers 1.0

This is indeed a very helpful tool, that adds greatly to Scrivener (as it doesn’t aspire to be too focused on reviewing and editing research material, but rather making it available once it’s useful to the project). They also offer a plug-ing architecture http://www.mekentosj.com/papers/plugins/. Would anybody be able/willing to write one that would allow to export papers/PDFs directly to Scrivener with as much of the Meta-data as possible? That would be sweet!
