Right now, I am using Notion as a database for my academic interests: lists of articles to read, articles do write, journals to publish, etc. ClickUp doesn't offer spreadsheets yet, although it's in the roadmap. I'm considering Airtable specially because I'd like to use Gannt charts.
The easiest way to cite and write is to use Endnote - and it has the added benefit of being able to store PDFs/search any database really. I personally use Evernote to organize and store PDFs and search as well - Evernote has excellent optical character recognition meaning that a simple search will give you results within the PDF + any actual text you have written. I dont think there is a one-size-fits-all approach to academic databases, but 1) project management in notion, 2) PDF management in Evernote, and 3) writing and citing with Endnote + word.
Definitely Roam or MediaWiki.
Both offer a great way to save and list text references. Notion is awesome but lack this feature which seems a staple need in academic content.
The traditional options for an academic database would likely be a reference and citation tool like Zotero, Endnote, Mendely, and so on. You could definitely build something similar on your own in Notion or other notes and database tools; the difference will be they won't auto-generate standard citations for you once you're ready to publish your findings.
Another tool you could consider here is Coda, which is similar to Notion, and lets you put spreadsheet-style lists in-line inside your notes. Roam Research—with its internal links to connect ideas and outline-style notes—seems something else that could fit.
Curious, how do you want to use Gantt charts to organize research?
