Endnote software

Anyone who has been to university knows that writing a bibliography or reference page is a pain in the arse. Our university provdes refworks software as a bibliographic tool but I decided I wanted to use endnote.

This software is “cite n write’ software, all I have to do is press shift + cmd + E when writing in pages  to open a searchable library on my laptop. I type the first few letters of the author or title and it is found. The all I do is click “insert” and the reference is inserted into the text and the reference page.

It’s actually really easy once you have it, you just set up google scholar and other data bases to import the citation into endnote. The only problem is the papers you already have. In theory you just drag them in and endnote looks at the DOI info embedded and grabs the referencing info. In practice though many of mine didn’t do this, maybe because they’re too old or maybe because the authors haven’t embedded the info. It is pretty frustrating but I am sure it won’t take too long to sort out.
