5-0 out of 5 stars New version delivers
EndNote is an extremely powerful tool for organising large numbers of references - great for researchers. Add references to the database manually, by "filtering" in your saved searches from databases or a friend's EndNote or Procite reference list, or by connecting directly to databases which support the Z39:50 standard. Select the bibliography style you need (hundreds available, or design your own) and add straight into your article or thesis - it places a citation in the text and formats a tidy bibliography at the end. It's easy to reformat the citations into other styles (as when you need to submit your article to numerous journals).

First time users should expect to spend a long time learning the ins and outs of this huge package but it's well worth the time if you have to organise lots of references. It comes with a great manual that fills in all the details you'll need, which installs on your computer in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format.

The new version of EndNote includes the facility to add "figures" to your work - it places a marker in the text ie. (Figure 1) and inserts the actual picture at the end of the text in a list of figures. This is currently a bit fiddley to do, presumeably the next version will streamline the process, but certainly very useful.

The other major features of this release are that the menus have been redesigned (the same content is there, and it's probably more intuitive to a new user, but will take a little getting used to), and EndNote now comes with Word document templates for the submission style preferred by many major journals.

5-0 out of 5 stars A tremendous tool for scholars
Endnote is is a must-have product for any researcher, working academic or graduate student, especially those writing a doctoral dissertation. The ability to use online library catalogs and place found materials directly into one's bibliography and footnotes formatted in the style of your choice is worth the price of admission. Hours, if not days, of drudgery can be saved with Endnote.

5-0 out of 5 stars End the hassel on how to write a bibliography
I have used EndNote and find that it is wonderful when you have to keep track of references and create a bibliography. All you have to do is enter the information and it creates it in whatever style you select. It has the most up to date reference stlyes including APA 5th Edition. It also includes other helpful features such as the ability to search bibliographic databases on the Internet, to organize references and images in a database,
construct your paper with built-in manuscript templates,

Link your EndNote records to PDF files on the Web or on your hard drivr. You can watch as the bibliography and figure list appear as you write. It also includes the ability to add footnotes as you write you paper. It is wonderful for anyone who is serious about publicating professional papers.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent tool for researchers
if you are a researcher you have to have a copy of endnote or prepare to waste alot of time doing your references. here is the details of my experience.

I tried many times to manually prepare the references section of my latest manuscript as a medical researcher. it took me at least a week since each journal has its required format that we have to abide wit in case we want to publish with them.

in endnote I prepared all my references in 20 minutes and I did not miss any related references at all. also I did that while I am writing since it has a link to word.

endnote allows you to select your references format from a list of journals. in other words you could actually format your references according to the jurnal you are publishing with and switch between them easily in one minute. it is magic!

with the help of endnote, we could save as much as 50-70 % of the time wasted in formatting and organizing.

it also has a link to the internet and all major research engines
like medline and pubmed. it is an amazing form of data collection and organization and I recommend it for every researcher. Regards ... Read more

Final Draft AV fills a niche that Final Draft's screenwritingsoftware ignored: creation of two-column audio-video scripts andaudio-only scripts for radio. Television news writers, segment producers, andad writers usually create scripts with video in the left column andaudio in the right column. Writers who don't have access to aprofessional scriptwriting system like Basys or Avstar usually inserttext into existing script templates, or patch something together usingtables and columns in a word processing program. As both of theseoptions scream "hack!" students and freelancers will welcome FinalDraft's venture into this format of scripting.

That said, Final Draft AV feels like a TV-writing program designed byscreenwriters. The two columns are there, it's easy and intuitive tomove between them, and the video column does stay aligned with thematching audio column. But there are also some glaring omissions. Theprogram doesn't provide estimated times for scripts, nor does itprovide a space to input actual running time once a script is produced.Some of the automatic functions are unnecessary: each time the writertabs from the video column to the audio column, the programautomatically underlines and adds a colon to whatever is written.Useful for screenwriters, who write dialog between characters that mustadhere to a strict punctuation format, it's useless for segmentproducers, who usually have one narrator reading their copy.

Also, though the user's manual says that importing and exportingscripts to and from Final Draft AV from other word processors is simplya matter of making sure they're saved in rich text format, we couldn'tsuccessfully manage it with a multipage script for a half-hour cookingshow without going back and forth between the scripts and thenperforming major surgery on the mashed together copy. We think theFrankenscript occurred because there isn't one "right" way to write ascript for TV: unfamiliar capitalization and spacing confused FinalDraft AV, so the program just crammed it all together. Scripts can betransitioned smoothly between computers if both were written in FinalDraft AV. And Final Draft AV scripts can go from PCs to Macs with nohang-ups.

Using Final Draft AV is still a lot better than building homemadescript templates with your word processor, but a template is really allthis program provides. It will probably work well for student projects,single segments, and ad scripts. But if you want to use this program todevelop and produce a multisegment half-hour show, you'll have to pullout your stopwatch and your calculator. --Anne Erickson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
This software is a professional's dream come true, yet beginners should have no problem with it. The fellow who only rated it a one is obviously clueless. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who needs to write copy for broadcasting.

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved me from lots of headaches!
I've struggled for years (to say the least) attempting to write audio-visual scripts by using tables in Word. Final Draft AV solved all my problems and kept the Video and Audio columns aligned perfectly. It is very easy to use and I recommend it to anyone who needs to write scripts in a two-column format.

4-0 out of 5 stars Could be better...
I've tried to use Word processors to set columns to write short commercials and scripts. I could never figure out how to keep the audio and video together without frequent adjustments. This was a dream come true...

I was willing to pay the bucks if it did what it said. And it did, without much difficulty...right out of the box. I wrote my first script within 10 minutes of installation and it looked like I wanted...a place for video that matched the audio.

My only negative is that this software is of little use for anything else...as far as I know, it's not doubling as a word processor. It does a script and if that's what you need, buy it! It makes life just bit easier...just forget the price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dreadfully poor!
After using Word and Pagemaker to do a/v scripts for years, I decided to "move up" to a product that's made specifically for the purpose: Final Draft A/V. It has too many shortcomings to list here, but try these three for starters: 1) You're stuck with Times New Roman, a deficiency that's admitted on page 45 of the User Guide. "A future version of Final Draft A/V will permit full font control. Make sure you register so that you will be notified when updates are available." Sure, you can change the font, but at the next new paragraph, it defaults back to Times, every time; 2) When the user inserts text in the midst of existing text, it jumps automatically WITH EACH KEYSTROKE to the end of that page. To get back to the insert point to type the next character, the user must press ENTER after each and every key stroke. The wild back and forth flipping is maddening; 3) one of the options is to offset-right the script to allow lefthand space when printing for 3-hole punching. Even though I have never activated this feature, and even though the live area appears centered on my computer screen, it ALWAYS prints out with the offset and I've tested it on the two ink jets and one laser printer that are attached to my computer. It's truly the worst software I've ever purchased, but the packaging looks very good in dim light.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally!
I have been waiting for a product like this for years. Writing dual-column scripts in Word using tables has been very painful (to say the least!) and Final Draft AV makes it quite easy. I have also been a very satisfied user of their screenplay software, Final Draft, for many years. I called the company and they are committed to improving the product substantially in the next few months...but right now I am extremely happy with what it does for me and all the time it has saved me. ...

Amazon.com Review

EndNote 4.0 may be the cure for all that bibliographically ails you:this package is assuredly a one-stop source for researchers, students, andanyone else wishing to catalog some sort of library. Founded on the comfortableshortcuts and clicks that most Windows users are familiar with, text formattingand file functions are a breeze, and clicking does everything from sorting theindicated column to drag-and-drop copying from one library to another.

After a quick install, beginning a new library is a snap. Creating each newentry, or reference, has a nice rhythm to it. You'll maneuver through any numberof fields (EndNote provides several dozen, and you may also add customizedfields) by tabbing or clicking, and auto-completion will keep you moving alongas the software recognizes past entries. EndNote allows for many referencewindows to be open at once, coupled with a quick close-all keyboard shortcut.And no need to be manually saving after every entry: every time you change data,EndNote saves.

EndNote is well suited to handling professional bibliography work: eachreference in a library can hold a total of 64,000 characters, or about 16 pagesof text. Additionally, each library can grow to about 32,000 records, or about32 megabytes.

After entering your references, you've created a venerable library for yourself,searchable and concise. You may also import reference data, which allows you toavoid rekeying any other bibliographic work you've already done in Refer, BibIX,ProCite, or tab-delimited data from spreadsheets, databases, and word-processingapplications. Your library can also be exported to Word and WordPerfectdocuments and structured in any bibliographical format that you choose (completewith correct in-text reference citations). Options include standards like TheChicago Manual of Style and APA to lesser-known journal stylesranging from Advances in Agronomy to Yeast.

The only challenge when using EndNote is comprehending how powerful it is andexactly how much you, the bibliographer, can do with it. Additionally, using theconnection files to search remote databases may at first feel awkward for thosewho have searched these sources directly. But once a connection is established,searching ensues through the EndNote search window, which is completelycustomizable. You can even add other databases as long as they areZ39.50-compliant.

A powerful application for academic, professional, and personal use, EndNote 4.0is a complete resource for gathering and maintaining bibliographic references.--Emilie Dirks--This review was written for the full Windows version. ... Read more

I loved the idea of developing a font based on my own handwriting. It's a nice product to have for personalizing e-mail, letterhead and general word processing creations. My major criticism was the less than user-friendly instructions. It would have been helpful to know to use a marker instead of a ball point pen to create the font. It also took a good deal of time to figure out how and what to edit on the fonts. You do receive adequate instructions to get you started. Overall, it is a good product and I would recommend the purchase. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

EndNote 5 is a new version of the bibliographic software popular among researchers, students, and librarians. It is used to search online bibliographic databases, organize references, and create instant bibliographies. EndNote 5 introduces a new level of integration with Microsoft Word, along with a traveling reference library that follows the document for easy collaboration with colleagues.

The Cite While You Write feature lets you locate and insert citations without leaving Microsoft Word. EndNote 5's new instant formatting creates your bibliography as you type, without waiting, guessing, or taking extra steps. Cite While You Write locates references in your open EndNote library and provides you with a selection list. If you don't find what you're looking for, simply modify the search to receive a new list. EndNote retains your last 10 searches to easily recall previous selection lists. As you insert a citation in your document, EndNote formats the in-text citation and builds the bibliography instantly.

EndNote 5 automatically creates a hidden traveling library as you cite references in Microsoft Word. The traveling library contains complete reference data for all your citations. When you're ready to send this document to colleagues for editing, they'll have all the necessary information to add, delete, and reformat citations. Wherever the document goes, the references travel with it.

EndNote 5 includes multilanguage and discipline-specific dictionaries for greater accuracy in spell checking. Dictionaries include American Medical, Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. The addition of new output styles to format bibliographies brings the total to more than 700. New connection files expand the Internet libraries available for remote searching. Users of EndNote 5 and the ISI Web of Science--the premier citation database used by institutions worldwide--can now create searches in EndNote. A link to the original ISI Web of Science record is stored in the EndNote 5 reference--ready to link to full text and other scholarly databases through ISI links. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Couln't live without it!
From high school student to professional, it you are at all serious about scholarly writing or even just expect to do a lot of it (whether you like it or not), this product is for you! My productivity has skyrocketed since I purchased EndNote last year. Sure, there are some improvements that could be made, but all in all, a fantastic product!

Here's how it works: EndNote builds a database of information about the articles, books, and other items you want to cite in your paper. You fill in a template with the bits of information needed to cite a source properly, which might vary for an edited book, a web site, or whatever type of source you are using. (You can even type in or scan in text from your sources as well.) Then, as you write your paper in Word or WordPerfect, you will find an added EndNote toolbar along the top of your page. After you type in something you want to cite, click to open the list of sources, and drop the one you want into the paper. (At this point I always edit the citation by adding the page number). EndNote *automatically* puts this citation into the citation style you choose, and at the same time generates a "works cited" list at the end of the file. It's that simple!!

And even better: if you need to change the citation style -- say you wrote it in MLA style but are submitting to an APA style journal -- it just takes a few clicks to change the style! I have had to go back and clean up citations once or twice when doing this, but it's a lot easier than re-doing the whole paper.

Another nice feature is the ability to download citations directly from some databases and library catalogs, saving you keystrokes. It's a nice program to use to keep track of your personal library as well, since it has searchable keyword fields.

I highly recommend this program! If you are a student contemplating a few years of serious writing in college, this will save you an enormous amount of time. If you write scholarly articles, this will keep you so organized you will have hours more time for research. And if you just collect books and articles of topics that interest you, it's still a great way to keep your information organized.

4-0 out of 5 stars Time Saver
I used EndNotes for my doctoral dissertation and realize the many hours I saved by using the EndNote feature of typing in a keyword, then reviewing the list of my references that addressed the keyword topic.

With the simplicity of entering data as one writes, there is no hectic searching upon completion of a writing to locate the correct reference for inclusion in the bibliography.

Two shortcomings: 1. No spell check, which I understand is now available in the upgrade. 2. Awkwardness in including references read, but not cited in the work.

4-0 out of 5 stars evolutionary upgrade; compatibility problems
EndNote version 5 does not revolutionary change the way how EndNote looks a feels, but it adds a few nice touches. First of all, you get a toolbar in Word which enables you to access the main 10 features of EndNote without browsing through the menus. Secondly, it has a very nice feature which formats references immediately as you add them to the text. This is very convenient when you are writing a camera-ready paper with figures, and want to have good feeling of the length and format of the paper. Version 5 also has a built-in spell-checker, which is handy when you generate database entries by typing in the titles and abstracts of the articles.

A controversial part of the upgrade is the so-called "Traveling library". The format of the formatted EndNote fields has changed, they now contain complete reference data which enables your collegue who may not even have your database to use parts of your documents in his work and even change the output style of the citations. Unfortunately, the negative side of this new feature is that version 5 cannot unformat the references which were formatted in version 4, and vice versa. This means that (a) you have to unformat all your old documents before making the upgrade, and (b) you may have some compatibility issues with your collegues who run versions 1-4. I am surprised why the developers could not add the feature "unformat version 4 references" to ensure the complete compatibility and smooth transition to version 5.

The format of EndNote libraries (databases) remained the same, I did not experience any compatibility problems there.

Overall, EndNote is a great program, I cannot imagine my work without it. If you already have version 4, then I am not sure that an upgrade to version 5 is really worth the money. In contrast, an upgrade over 2 versions, e.g., from version 3 to version 5, makes sufficient difference to justify the expense. ... Read more

EndNote 5.0 is the cure for all that bibliographically ails you: thispackage is assuredly a one-stop source for researchers, students, and anyoneelse wishing to catalog some sort of library. Whether you've used EndNote in thepast or are starting on your first bibliographical foray, you'll be pleasantlysurprised with the powerful features that EndNote 5.0 incorporates.

After a quick install, starting a new library is a snap. Creating each newentry, or reference, has a nice rhythm to it. You'll maneuver through any numberof fields (EndNote provides several dozen, and you can also add customizedfields) by tabbing or clicking, and auto completion will keep you moving alongas the software recognizes past entries. And no need to manually save after eachentry: every time you change data, EndNote saves.

The Cite While You Write technology in EndNote 5.0 allows for even greaterintegration with Microsoft Word 97 and 2000. This feature allows you to locateand insert citations without leaving your Word document. Because EndNotefunctions as a Word add-in, you'll find citation commands immediately off theTools menu in Word. After pulling up a reference by any number of criteria,EndNote automatically inserts the citation and updates your bibliography. Youcan then format the citation with the Format Bibliography command. If you don'timmediately see the style you're looking for, no need to fret: the Style Managergives you access to the hundreds of styles available, letting you add to yourfavorite annotative styles.

EndNote is well suited to handling professional bibliography work: eachreference in a library can hold a total of 64,000 characters, or about 16 pagesof text. Additionally, each library can grow to about 32,000 records, or about32 MB.

After entering your references, you've created a venerable library foryourself--searchable and concise. You may also import reference data, which allows you toavoid re-keying any other bibliographic work you've already done in Refer,BibIX, ProCite, or any tab-delimited data from spreadsheets, databases, and wordprocessing applications. EndNote 5.0 has grown to include more than 700 styles,ranging from standards such as The Chicago Manual of Style and APAto lesser-known journal styles ranging from Advances in Agronomy toYeast.

Another feature new to 5.0 is the traveling library. Each formatted citation inyour document is saved with field codes that embed reference data in thedocument. When you share your paper, your citations go with it--even if you andyour colleague are not using the same database.

A powerful application for academic, professional, and personal use, EndNote 5.0is a complete resource for gathering and maintaining bibliographic referencesand sharing your work with colleagues. --Emilie Dirks ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Be aware of price and lack of support
I bought Endnotes not realizing that as a student I could have gotten the product for 1/3 of what I paid for it. I had no way of knowing from the advertisement. It is a very expensive piece of software! It is also difficult to use without an inservice, so it has not been used much by me. I am waiting to meet with an instructor for instruction. This is disappointing. I can't give it a higher rating until I learn to use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential software for academics
Endnote is a fantastic program. The most impressive and useful feature not yet mentioned is the Z39.50 search feature. What this means is that you can click on "Connect" and go to the Library of Congress or other libraries or databases (OCLC FirstSearch, for example, although this one requires a password) and download the entries directly into Endnote. You then have all the references in your own Endnote library without even going to the library site. For example, if you need to search Psych Abstracts, you can use the "connect" feature to search for and download the references, including the abstracts, right into your Endnote library.

The tech support has been very responsive, too, and new filters and other support files are available as downloads at the main site ([URL]).

Yes, there are a few quirky features that still linger from the old versions. The interface isn't as modern as, say, Procite's, but Endnote still works well. It is well worth purchasing and will save you many hours of additional work if you are a graduate student or academic. I'd seriously consider it for undergrads, too, if only for the time and headaches saved in converting from format to format when you're writing papers. Does anyone really want to memorize the differences between CBE, MLA, APA (5th ed), Chicago A, Chicago B, and so on? I didn't think so, and with Endnote, you don't have to; the program will automatically format these references for you.

No, I don't own stock in the company; I'm just a convert to Endnote who, after purchasing two previous versions (3.0 and 5.0) has now ordered version 6.

5-0 out of 5 stars Huge improvement from 2.3 (but still no geography journals!)
As someone who was using the 2.3 version of EndNotes (that came on floppy disks) and just updated, let me say the differences are polar. Controlling the format of your bibliography is infintely easier (numbering, spacing, fonts, etc); the number of reference types/templates has at least doubled (including "electonic sources"); the ability to unformat and reformat citations in Word is a major plus; the field completion in the database is a major time saver.

Although some tasks are more difficult than one would expect (e.g. adding page numbers to in-text citations) and there are a few minor bugs that will likely be cleared up in updates, overall this is an excellent buy for those using versions 3 or 2, or for some poor unfortunate person who still lacks a proper reference management program. While the flexibility is not complete, it has vastly improved.

Now if only they would get on the ball and include formats for Geography journals. I mean, at least one journal in the discipline has to be on the same level of readership as "Yeast" (especially since geography by nature operates at much larger scales).

4-0 out of 5 stars Incredible tool, but could improve usability
I've recently been exposed to this incredible tool for organizing bibliographical references, and most of my initial impressions are summarized in this thought: "I wish there had been something like this when I was writing my Thesis!" However, I have to note that, as a software, it doesn't adhere to what I consider to be some de facto standards widely used today. For example, what would you normally expect to see, if you haven't voluntarily saved anything when you are going to close a window in a software you are using? "Do you want to save?" Right? Wrong... or at least that's what EndNote's developers decided.

Another thing which I didn't like, actually has a lot to do with the integration of the software with Microsoft Word. This integration is actually one way, i.e. everything you edit on EndNote gets reflected in Word, but NOT viceversa. This can be truly inconvenient at times.

However, all in all, with its downsides, the program actually succeeds at helping people writing essays, thesis, books, etc. to organize without much hassle all the references they need to include in their publications.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Excellent
This is an extremely valuable software page if you work with lots of references. For individuals writing research papers, theses, dissertations, and grants, you will find this package saves you hours and greatly increases your organization and effectiveness in formatting and utilizing references. Endnote is extremely easy to use, and by all means take advantage of the online features immediately. Buy this software, you won't be sorry, I only wish I used Endnote during the years I was in graduate school. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars At first I had some doubts
It took a bit of getting used to, however, after a few minutes of exploration, I agree it is better than a dictionary and combines nicely as a thesaurus. What a unique idea. Fast and easy. Although the meanings are brief, there is easy access to dictionary .com for a more complete explaination if one is necessary. I think it beats an ordinary diction/thesaurus all to .... ...
