Paperpile is a new web-based reference and document management system, which offers 15GB of free storage, import options for references and documents from all major databases, other product libraries (e.g. Mendeley, Endnote) and hard disk, as well as the ability to add citations and bibliographies.

Paperpile is designed to work within the Google environment - if syncing is enabled in Google Drive your files will be available on different computers or mobile devices. A Google account is required for sign-in.

Paperpile is fully supported on Chrome for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and Chrome OS, and is also known to run on the open-source Chromium browser. Since Paperpile uses advanced features of the Chrome platform, it is not available on IE, Firefox or other browsers.
