"Messy and incompetent"

August 12, 2012  |  By dusakov

 |  Version: EndNote 10.0

Pros

Wide availability through institutional subscription

Cons

References lost when transferring between computers, references lost when updating text versions, unwanted searches and references stored without warning, reference duplication without warning, illogical interface menus, unwanted help functions and automatic saves, service directories and files getting duplicated and spread across the operating system making inter-computer exchange useless, unwanted default format options never matching the text format.

Summary

It is pretty obvious that people who have designed more recent 3-4X versions never tried to actually use EndNote for their day job. They must have been issued orders "to develop" it. Perhaps they got some advice from librarians, which made things much worse. There are such obvious failures to understand what sort of reference assistance one wants when writing, updating, transferring, sending, etc. your paper that the list will take several pages. If you never used it before find something else.

"Excellent Software for academics"

August 04, 2010  |  By eaak79

 |  Version: EndNote 10.0

Pros

Top Quality, Very Fast and Instant results

Cons

Needs training before using.

Summary

I was told during my Master Degree in UK to use it for reference purposes. It did its job by saving my valuable time. Instead of writing each and everything reference into the Word Document and them format it according to Harvad style was a nightware "by hand" but by using this software it was just a piece of cake. Highly recommanded for acadamics otherwise no use for "ordinary people".

"Bad, bad, bad"

September 22, 2009  |  By vonweber

 |  Version: EndNote 10.0

Pros

Pros? It is ubiquitous in the academic world, but that's just because people don't find the time to seek and learn a new reference management software. Ubiquitousness is EndNote's only pro.

Cons

See summary below

Summary

This is an utterly mediocre and problematic piece of software. It's as if EndNote lives in the past as far as software usability and reliability go. This is how unstable, primitive and timewasting computer programs were about 10 years or so ago! I don't even want to think how many hours of my time this program has wasted while I was trying to fill in for what *it* should have done!

Myself and several of my colleagues have long migrated to other reference management software, which are open-source AND much, much better than EndNote in every sense possible. To give just a few examples: JabRef, BibDesk, Zotero. It is just the corporate might of Thomson Scientific that's sustaining EndNote - this, and nothing more. In the era of excelent free software, this bloated, incompetent piece of rubbish called EndNote will not survive much longer.
