Academic Writing in Markdown

:pencil: Markdown helps me focus on the writing rather than organizing and formatting. See how to set up your workflow for academic writing in Markdown.

Software/tools that I am currently using:

  • Zettlr (Zettelkasten, best integration with Zotero: in-app look up citation, one click to open associated PDF)
  • Obsidian (Zettelkasten, similar to Roam Research but offline. Local network graphs!)
  • Roam-Highligher - Chrome Extension (great to taking notes on webpages and paste highlights in markdown)
  • HackMD (Zettelkasten, GitHub integration, online collboration, publish, comments)
