Great for organising references, but not for inserting and editing citations in a document

What do you like best?

The ability to organise and search your references

What do you dislike?

The word add-in of endnote is, at least with word 2016 on mac, to say the least a painful experience. Working with longer documents with many references, the endnote word-citations tool takes forever to insert and format citations, it will try to replace all parentheses in the text with references (meaning you could all of a sudden have references at random places in your text), and editing a single reference runs the risk of making a mess of the entire list of references. Furthermore, Endnote is not good at keeping up with office updates, meaning that it doesn't work with the latest version of Word (2016, version 16.xx)

Recommendations to others considering the product

I do not recommend endnote as a citation software, there are other programs that are better at this, but for organising references, endnote is satisfying.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Endnote provide a great way to organise and search your references, including pdf files

Great way to organize references and notes

What do you like best?

Two great things about EndNote:

1. Citations and notes can be combined into one file, so everything is available in one convenient place, even if I'm returning to a research project after months (or years!). I don't have to go hunting for things on my computer.

2. Easy integration with Word. The citation feature within Word works well, even for lengthy documents, and makes organizing citations very straightforward.

What do you dislike?

Probably the biggest downside of EndNote is simply that it's expensive, and there are various free options our there that do similar things. That said, if your university sponsors this (or you can get it reimbursed), I think it's well worth the money.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To be most useful, I would recommend committing to doing all your citations through EndNote. It's a larger start-up cost, but once you get going it really is much more useful this way. You can use "Groups" to categorize citations for use in different research projects

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing citations and notes; properly and efficiently citing material in working papers and published research.

If you like saving references for last -- this is a lifesaver!

What do you like best?

Everything is one neat, organized table. I can search by many different variables and have the ability to import citations from online sources. Manual reference input is also quite simple - and takes the headache out of remembering which format is required for which sources.

What do you dislike?

The in-document citation and reference manager can be a bit annoying. Making manual changes within your document can be incredibly difficult - so you need to get the reference input right the first time!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really great for those having to keep track of several references. It also has an online login which I haven't used much - but you are able to log on from other devices if necessary. If you are able to categorize your documents early on, you will find Endnote to be such an easy way to call on references whenever you need them. You can even use it to search for terms and topics - making referencing headaches, a thing of the past.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Besides having a wonderful organization tool for all of my references, where I can organize by topic, year, author or whatever I please -- endnote takes the headache out of citing and referencing. The cite as you write feature is just invaluable. And the bibliography is magically taken care off while you write!

Pretty good; although, not great at giving the desired formatting

What do you like best?

I like that I can store all my pdfs online, so that I can download them from different locations. Once you have a GIANT library, it becomes really useful to be able to simply pull from the cloud. EndNote has made that a lot easier. The search functionality is really great, too, for searching within your library.

What do you dislike?

Very poor tech support. Sometimes syncing does not work, and it is not clear why. When you try to find a solution, you end up just poking around on the internet, since the turnaround on email/messaging-based customer support is so slow. As a user, you also constantly have the nagging feeling that you are not using EndNote to its full functionality. There are so many customizable things, but it is not entirely clear what any of them are or how to use them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out what else is available, but EndNote does get the job done. It's a little pricey...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving the problem of having lots of pdf documents scattered across my computers. Having things in EndNote helps me keep track of what is there and, importantly, allows me to store additional documents in association with the pdfs -- documents such as notes or paper drafts.

Easy to use software that manages references and integration into your document

What do you like best?

The ability to organize your references by category makes it easy to sort through your collection. Also it is integrated with Microsoft Word so you can easily cite a reference from your database while typing in Word. Formatting of your bibliography is also very easy using Endnote. Even if the software does not have a particular journal's formatting requirements, you can easily download the format from the journal and sync it with your Endnote library.

What do you dislike?

Searching using a single field (i.e. "title" or "author") for a reference in an online database often does not turn up the result you wanted, which forces you to search using multiple search fields filled in. Sometimes when searching with a single author also may not turn up the reference you're looking for, and typing in multiple authors may be required.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many many features with Endnote - a tutorial for your employees would be beneficial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This makes publishing a breeze, saving you loads of time on filling out references for your paper or article.

The best reference management software

What do you like best?

the ability to search directly on pubmed.

the ability to search directly on the library of congress.

the ability to use a very high number of citation styles corresponding at a lot of journals and reviews.

the perfect integration into Word make it really easy to use, you just have to click to insert your reference and your bibliography is automatically reformated!

tha ability to synchronyse your librairy on the cloud in order to be sure not to loose it or just if your abroad ans you need to find a publication and the PDF with (indeed you can stock pdf in you library, so you don't have ton search each time on the database, it is also a gain of time.)

What do you dislike?

sometimes it's difficult to know if we should make a single library or a library by project.

It is not always easy to import references such as laws, regulations or even government documents.

Sometimes the library is corrupted, there is a tool to repair it, it works, ok, but that's a little bit annoying. That is maybe the blackest point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As for me it is a gain of time in my job when i write my publication.

If your a PhD student, a searcher it worth to by this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I win a lot of time for making my bibliography, and I can reuse references that I have already used in the past
