Smart reference manager

I used in in my previous academic organization (IISER TVM) extensively for my research thesis and work. It is used across my organization. It is very convienient tool to compile and manage enormous bibliographic data for my personal use as well as academic purposes. The add-on tools integrated in EndNote are very convienient and easy to use.
  • Citation insertion
  • Easy merge and updation of documents with cited references
  • Bibliography compilation and maintenance
  • Better integrated tools with other applications
  • While finding full text, downloading all PDFs in single folder rather than in each folder will be a betterment.
  • Auto template updation in the existing library
  • Simplified library editing panel
There are lot of bibliographic compilation softwares in the market but no other product have these extensive tools and options to facilitate the easy of use and effective work done on EndNote. Price wise bit high end but work wise highly effective. Transferring the libraries and accessing on multiple devices also a added advantage in EndNote. The newly enabled synchronisation option was very useful.
  • Not much mannual intervention in facilitating error free compilation of data
  • Advantage of better time management
  • Easy accessibility for the multiple user on multiple projects
  • Highly priced
  • Support could be better
  • Not everyone can afford at this price
I like the ease of using EndNote inbuilt tools and add-ins. The best part is, I can simply copy the reference from the EndNote library and paste it into the Word document. When my file is ready, I select the journal style or download it and it does the job quickly. Another good thing is that it gives freedom to choose to reference style either in the auto format or manual compiling mode. I feel this superior ease of features is a bit compromised on the other citation managers/bibliographic software.

We use endnotes for managing references used in writing medical papers. The software offers seamless integration with the Microsoft office word applications. It offers many references formatting styles. You also have an option to access your account and references on their website if using a public network. It is the best reference manager out there.
  • Reference managers
  • Many formatting styles for references
  • Seamless integration with Microsoft word
  • Loading times can be long
  • Loading PDF documents in the application can be laggy
  • Better pricing
EndNote is a must-have application if you manage references for any article or paper. You can save references to your own library which syncs online. You can access your library anytime and anywhere. It has seamless integration with Microsoft word in both Windows and Mac computers. I definitely recommend this application!
  • Seamless integration with Microsoft word
  • Many references formatting styles
  • Comprehensive reference manager
  • Publish papers faster
  • Finish projects and manuscripts on time
  • One-stop-shop for managing references
I have not used any other reference managers.

Great citation manager

Score 7 out of 10

We use EndNote as our primary citation manager for the writing of research papers, grants, and proposals. EndNote compiles all references into a single library and works with the EndNote word plugin to cite papers, books, etc. while writing and compiles into a bibliography in your selected style.
  • organizes citations
  • combines citations across documents
  • serves as a reading platform
  • The reading pdf feature could be improved
  • removing duplicates can be tricky
  • journal abbreviations are difficult to manage and usually require manual input
EndNote is a great citation manager due to its ability to share and combine several references from different people or documents. It can be a bit tricky to navigate the settings such as style choice and journal abbreviation name list.
  • merging document libraries
  • copy and paste citations feature
  • organization of references
  • Many publications have been published with the help of EndNote
  • Great training for using citation managers
I enjoy reading on the Mendeley interface more than EndNote but EndNote is superior for exporting references and the EndNote word plugin works much better. EndNote is also easier to use as a citation manager with multiple people or documents.

EndNote Review

The choice of this kind of software relies on the preference of the end-user. I started using EndNote because my supervisor was using it and said that quite a few people in our field are using it. I purchased through the department's computer administration team and have been using it for many years. I've found EndNote to be very convenient.
  • Literature book-keeping by drag and drop
  • Rich output format selection for bibliography
  • Automatically extracting bibliographic info from the PDF
  • It would be nice if it could automatically update bibliographic info for the paper downloaded.
  • Good reference manual to fully exploit the features
  • Updating number of citations would help a lot
Probably there are many good features in EndNote that I haven't fully explored. It would be nice to have a good manual to show case-by-case tutorials. It also means that the software is rich in features.
  • None
Again, I would like to see a good manual having case-by-case tutorials.

EndNote is part of our package of software that is used throughout the entire organization. This is used by all of our faculty to address multiple issues when it comes to creating and managing data libraries as well as references. This is also used by those performing large research projects within multiple departments.
  • Referencing.
  • Formatting.
  • There have been issues with databases after upgrades but this seems fixed in newer versions.
  • Corrupt libraries after Word upgrade. Again, seems fixed in new versions
EndNote seems to be adept at managing a large number of references in the easiest manner possible. This makes everything very streamlined when it comes to inserting references and creating the actual bibliography. You also have the ability to create rules to help organize and smooth out your workflow so things stay on track.
  • Positive impact on time.
  • Saves us money due to licensing.
Currently have not found any other solutions that address our needs the way that EndNote does. There are many features that are exclusive to EndNote that works for us the way we need it to.
Support seems to be good both on the technical side of the software the actual usage of the software. We have encountered minor as well as some major issues especially during upgrades but were able to work through them very quickly with the help of the support team and this allowed us to stay on track when there have been time crunches.
