Posted On: Sunday, November 21, 2021 - 13:21 by Steph Hendren

Many are familiar with EndNote as a helpful citation management tool that assists with collecting, saving, and citing papers. But sometimes EndNote can feel somewhat cumbersome to use. If you are on the market for a new citation manager, you might want to try out these other options.

Sciwheel, a web-based tool, allows you to create and organize a library of citations, discover new literature, and conduct group citing and editing of manuscripts via Google Docs. The browser plugin makes it easy to gather references from around the Web.

EndNote 20 is Here
Posted On: Wednesday, February 17, 2021 - 14:27 by Sarah Cantrell

EndNote 20, a citation management tool, is now available to download from Duke OIT. The primary goal of the update was to create a new interface design that would be more intuitive for users to operate. The result is a more modern, less cluttered program.

In addition to the interface update, EndNote 20 has made the deduplication of references easier by allowing users to search by DOI and PMCID (note: not PMID) during the deduplication process. Further, there are changes to how one views and annotates PDFs.  

Upgrading from EndNote X9 to EndNote 20

If you’re in the middle of a paper or project, we advise waiting to upgrade until the project is completed.

    Organizational Habits: What Would You Tell Your Younger Self?
    Posted On: Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 15:48 by Megan von Isenburg

    A couple of weeks ago, a blog post entitled, "A Letter to My Younger Self" made the rounds in various academic settings. Published on the career advice website, Vitae, the post was written by University of Pennsylvania PhD candidate Elizabeth Hallowell. In the article, Hallowell thanks her younger self - the age at which she started her doctoral program - for being organized in terms of library research. Her writing constitutes some advice that any academic should consider:

  • Pick a citation management tool. Hallowell picked the "not perfect" Zotero, but points out that it doesn't matter so much which software you choose, as long as you choose one and get...
