I guess you could say I use it to manage my references. E.g. I add references using the functions in doi-utils.el. I can search them using helm-bibtex (which is not part of org-ref, we just use it because it is awesome), and from that I can see groups of references with keywords, etc...

For me, I was interested in integrating it with my literate work (lentic). The idea would be a document with some formal representation (using OWL, but it could be anything at all) and some English (or bad English as this is science) representation in the org-mode view. I could hide the formal

I also wasn't familiar with it. I just played around with it a bit to see if you could integrate org-ref with this. You mostly can do it, but the document probably would need some final manual polishing for some things.
