Paper Manager is a Joomla extension allowing the management of scientific publications. The extension is useful for websites related to research laboratories and organizations. Lists of scientific papers are commonly present in such websites. A single paper can be included in more than one of these lists. For example it can be shown on a page dedicated to the conference publications of the lab and also on the profile pages of the authors. Paper Manager allows a specific paper entry to be displayed on multiple pages without copying html code on all the relative articles. The extension consists of a component and a content plugin. The component is used for CRUD operations on papers, paper categories and authors while the plugin displays lists of papers inside content (ex. articles), using special code snippets.


Functionality
Unable to *easily* instal the component and plugin with J! 4.x; unable to evaluate its functionality. Features still on "to do" list.
Ease of use
Development appears to have ground to a standstill (the last activity was eight months ago); incomplete
Documentation
Documentation exists and is fairly well written but the product appears to be still under development.
I used this to: I doubt I will have a use for this product. It looked promising but it appears to have been abandoned by its author.
