What Android or Windows 8 pen-equipped tablet should I buy for reading scientific papers, writing scientific papers, and taking notes? (Or is the app selection for the iPad sufficiently amazing that I should let it override my distaste for Apple's walled garden and the iPad's lack of an active digitizer stylus?) [more inside]

You’re an academic, and every now and then, often on short notice, you’ve got to put together an application which includes your papers, your grants, your service (and so on) and it’s in a different format and order to the last time. Would you pay someone to keep track of this stuff AND format your application/review? What do you need them to keep track of? Tell me more. What do you want?

My boss needs an academic reference manager (think: Papers, Sente, BibDesk) that can handle a huge existing BibTeX reference library and a huge-separate-but-sometimes-overlapping existing library of papers in PDF format. Have one you love? Tell me about it. [more inside]

My approach to academic papers is to read through once, then go back and type up notes on it. The problem is that my notes serve two functions: summary and commentary. What's the best software for making synopses of academic papers with personal annotated notes? [more inside]

Academics: What's your filing system for academic papers?
As I finish up my undergrad degree and enter grad school, I'm reading a lot of papers. Currently, they're just in a tall stack on my desk and in a folder in my Mac.
I'm interested in hearing filing solutions -- both hard copy and electronic -- for academic papers.
