"Makes searching online databases so much easier."

What do you like best?

What I liked best about this product is how easy it becomes to find references, search online databases and publish them, all in one program. Makes it a lot easier to do it all in one, additionally saving me time and making it a lot more convenient to do research!

What do you dislike?

I do dislike using this for collaborative projects. I feel as though it becomes hard to create bibliographies when you're working with several different people, all with different perspectives on the topic. It's tough to use this in group work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think making this more accessible for people to use all at once, working collaboratively would be the next step. This program is great, but it's also not advertised to the right market. Yeah, companies do use this, but college students would benefit greatly.

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

The business problems include it not being fit for group work. I do benefit from the spell check, identification of duplicates and organizing references without me wanting to pull my hair out! I do think this would be a good product to market to a younger audience who is doing research.

"Use of Thompson Reference Manager in Research Paper "

What do you like best?

Easy-to-use platform that allows one to have a central database of references for any projects. You can have multiple members that can edit, review, add, and delete sources all simultaneously, which is great for collaborative work.

What do you dislike?

The transition to EndNote formatting might not be 100% accurate. When too many users are on at one, the site can be very slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

How many sources/citations you need to have; Reference Manager is really useful for an extremely large number of citations.

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

Using Reference Manager to keep track of references used in writing research papers and peer analyses. Great tool, especially for collaborative efforts where numerous members have to contribute to one paper.

"Great for doing systematic reviews"

What do you like best?

Excellent UI and ability to search for references directly instead of having to find the titles through an index like pubmed. Allows you to quickly find references and organize your bibliography. Collaboration is also easy with the share features.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally crashes on my computer but that may be specific to my machine.

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

Allows multiple users working on the same academic paper to add citations to a communal bibliography in an efficient and organized manner

"Application Administrator and Techical Advisor"

What do you like best?

Library sharing capabilities, overall good functionality cataloging references.

What do you dislike?

Was not as effective at cataloging references as EndNote, and has since been replaced by EndNote as the company's lead reference management product.

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

Support multiple hard sciences researchers in the Biological and Medical fields. They need to effectively find research articles that relate to their field and also catalog their own contributions. This software provided an effective sharing tool for those catalogs.

"An alternative among good RM"

What do you like best?

Reference Manager (now Endnote) offers 30 days free trial includes desktop and web access. I can also run it on either Mac or Windows.

What do you dislike?

Reference Manager has different pricing packages for different country zones which may be a good idea. However, in general, I would prefer the different packages of different academic status such as students, academic institutions...

Recommendations to others considering the product

As long as we need to integrate with Microsoft Word to cite and write the research paper, I would highly suggest using the tool for the future convenience.

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

I used it because I simply wanted to write my research paper, also to consider which tools are best.
