I use reference manager for my bibliography/paper management system.  Each 
reference/paper gets (in my hands) a number, so everything gets filed 
sequentially according to date of input.

Downloaded papers get organized on my (IBM-PC type) computer in a 
"downloads" directory in subdirectories by journal name, with filenames 
consisting of:
<vol#>-<page#>RM<reference mananger ID#>.pdf
like: E:\Acrobat Downloads\FEBSLetters\510-0062 RM5475.pdf
This info also goes into Referencce Manager, so a single click there opens 
the paper.
