I need a software recommendation (for a free/open source product).

I've started using "Compendium" (developed in the UK) a few days ago.   This tool seemed very promising for creating a data repository on a) developing a literature map and b) adding "children" records into the parent record (i.e., subject and authors... 1:many relationship).

Please see URL below:

Sample screenshots of what I'm trying to achieve:

Unfortunately, half way into my data entry, I'm now experiencing a "bug" where certain records cannot be located via the Search function.    That is, sometimes it does find the record... and then it won't.   Weird but that's what I've experienced.

That said, does anyone know of an alternative (free) software product that provides similar capabilities.   Btw, I don't want to use "MindMap" or "FreeMind".    I tried them and they don't offer what I'd like to achieve.

Thanks,
EEH
