Endnote for PhD thesis referencing

Am just finishing up Endnote training at the University this morning. What a great little tool to help with the massive amount of references for PhD students. Would highly recommend it as it saves loads of time with referencing in your documents and also your Bibliography. I think the niftiest thing is that the references can be linked to pdf documents saved on your computer.

However, some limitations of the programme include:
  • It doesn't have a spell check
  • It doesn't consistently format your references so you'll have to tweak things yourself
  • It won't put the page numbers in your document referencing so you'll need to do this manually

You're right. I use endnote too and I am very satisfied when I can download and import reference from ACM database just in one click. You should try it.
