Papeer is a novel peer-to-peer bibliography management system. Papeer's user-centric gossip-based paper-indexing platform enables users to search for scientific papers and share them with their collaborators. Its recommendation facilities allows papeer to locate not only interesting papers but also new people to collaborate with on new research topics. Different from web-based tagging platforms, Papeer's decentralized architecture makes locally stored tags and content available to other users with similar research interests, through a personalized interest-based social network. This social network constitutes the basis for Papeer's ability search for papers, collaborators and to identify which coworkers are most likely to be interested in a given paper or topic.
