As an educator in a higher education doctoral programs, Endnote has become my choice for managing my bibliography, citations, and reference libraries for my graduate work. It is powerful software, even if the price tag seems a bit steep (there is student pricing however). Some of my favorite features include:
- Being able to search online databases through the software and its auto-complete reference feature.
- Customizable research file storage that I can make work for me.
- Auto-Bibliography and in-text citation feature that works with my word processing software.
- Ability to share and connect with others conducting similar research.
I have found its ability to work with Microsoft Word with in-text citations and bibliography generation to be mostly flawless. The only drawback, I also like to use Pages on my Mac, but I did not know that Endnote offered a plug-in for that word-processing software. It turns out, there is a plug in, and you can get it here (opens in new tab). For more information about Endnote, check out their web site here.
