The free and open source software allows users to create scientific content, complete with bibliographies, references and figures, far more easily than with a standard word processor.
The app lets you cite references without having to worry about a correct citation style, and includes a Crossref.org search tool to make it easy to add publications to your bibliography.
It uses a simplified XML-based file format, but is also capable of importing and exporting JATS files.
Developer Michael Aufreiter says that Lens Writer isn’t a complete product on its own, but rather a component to be customized and integrated into publishing systems.
