I liked the fact that the tool linked to my Microsoft word documents and created the bibliography and reference style I wanted with ease.

What I liked best about this product is how easy it becomes to find references, search online databases and publish them, all in one program. Makes it a lot easier to do it all in one, additionally saving me time and making it a lot more convenient to do...

The plug-in for Microsoft Word doesn't work as well as it could. The program is still a little clunky compared to other citation managers.
