What do you like best?

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 research! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do dislike using this for collaborative projects. I feel as though it becomes hard to create bibliographies when you're working with several different people, all with different perspectives on the topic. It's tough to use this in group work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think making this more accessible for people to use all at once, working collaboratively would be the next step. This program is great, but it's also not advertised to the right market. Yeah, companies do use this, but college students would benefit greatly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems include it not being fit for group work. I do benefit from the spell check, identification of duplicates and organizing references without me wanting to pull my hair out! I do think this would be a good product to market to a younger audience who is doing research. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy-to-use platform that allows one to have a central database of references for any projects. You can have multiple members that can edit, review, add, and delete sources all simultaneously, which is great for collaborative work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The transition to EndNote formatting might not be 100% accurate. When too many users are on at one, the site can be very slow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

How many sources/citations you need to have; Reference Manager is really useful for an extremely large number of citations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
