Presently, I am using Endnote however this does not operate on Android (iOS is available). I am looking for a self-hosted alternative for EndNote.


  1. Runs natively on Android
  2. Free option (preferable a self-hosted option)


  1. Open Sourced

For those wondering, I have created a Zotero account but I found that they only offer 300mb for the free plan. I have a VPS so are there any alternatives to Endnote/Zotero that is FOSS and has the ability to be self hosted?

  • Welcome to Software Recommendations! I've gone and edited your question to make it more readable, and friendly. As I was unawares as to what Endnote did, I went and added a hyperlink for others. Just a thought, have you looked at incubator.rockefeller.edu/… ? – ThisIsNotMyRealName Jan 27 '18 at 17:24
  • Moreover, colwiz.com/home seems appropriate however is not self hosted...2GB free space for transactions. – ThisIsNotMyRealName Jan 27 '18 at 17:25

    Thanks to Michaels edit we get a bit closer – but still need to check other sites to figure what your question is about. Please take a look at How to ask for an alternative to some software to see what's missing, then edit your question and fill the gaps. Dramatically increases your chances for good answers, as people otherwise often simply "skip over" if they don't get the idea. So apart from "being hosted", what must the software do? – Izzy Jan 28 '18 at 11:30
  • You can use WebDAV with Zotero. Can you meet your needs by self-hosting a WebDAV server and syncing Zotero to that? – BrenBarn Feb 1 '18 at 6:51
