32 For general concept, see “Mind Map,” Wikipedia, last modified January 14, 2014, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map. For a specific software implementation, see Docear—The Academic Literature Suite (http://www.docear.org/). Docear (pronounced “dog-ear”) is a free and open academic literature suite that integrates tools to search, organize, and create academic literature into a single application. Docear works seamlessly with many existing tools like Mendeley, Microsoft Word, and Foxit Reader.
