What do you like best?

Sciwheel enable me to sharing a reference list to my authors. Moreover, Sciwheel can be used with Google Docs, which increase its usefulness in collaborative works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The limitation of Project that can be made in free plan. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They should try it and combine it with Google Docs, it will becomes a powerful tool for collaborative work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Keeping the reference list of a joint-written paper valid. I often write my paper with my master students, and we did use reference manager but it cannot synchronize between my account and my students. Hence, I had to check the reference of the paper one by one which takes time. The problem is solved when I introduce Sciwheel to my research group, my students now just add me in their Project and I can see what kind of references they used.

What do you like best?

As a Director of Research, Professor, and Ph.D. student, I need all the help organizing and storing research papers I can get. F1000 Workspace is a LIFESAVER because I can quickly and easily save and organize my references for any size project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem I run into is needing to correct references. I understand that in many cases, the errors are due to the title (i.e., using capitalization in the title when it can't be used in an APA reference), but an automatic correction program would be awesome! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are many other popular and more expensive options out there. I've used them all, and none are as intuitive and user-friendly as F1000 Workspace Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Organizing research and references. F1000 Workspace provides the opportunity to quickly pull up notes and review abstracts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

F1000 Workspace is intuitive. There are many options to import your references and F1000 does a great job in formatting them. It is very easy to organize your library and add references to your document using the Microsoft Word plugin. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Microsoft Word Plugin is VERY slow. If you have more than 60 references in your document, adding a reference can take more than a minute or two. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

F1000 does a splendid job in importing and organizing your references from many different sources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

My references come from different sources (PDFs, PMIDs, DOIs, XMLs etc.), and F1000 Worspace was capable of importing and sorting all of them very quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

F1000 is a wonderful tool for bioscientists. It allows you to keep all your references at your fingertips so that you can cite them in your publications and grant proposals. It can also recommend important articles upon typing in some keywords. I use it often and also recommend my students to use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The downside is that not every collaborator use this tool, And if they use a different reference manager, going between different co-authors and editing an article with different reference managers could be a bit messy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

try this out and I think you'll like it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I have written many papers, grant proposals with F1000 workspace's help. The benefits are that they are consistent in archiving of my references and easy to change reference formates when I need to re-do my manuscripts with different citation formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best aspect of being part of f1000 is the user recommendations and synopsis of papers that can be relevant to your field. It’s more than a recommendation algorithm like mendeley but actually has very useful insight provided by faculty and researchers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

the shape annotation tools are a bit basic and annoying to use when you need to constantly resize them. I would rather be able to draw a box or circle around an important note. Same for text notes it needs work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Cloud based free reference manager that has brilliant recommendations from scientists across the globe as opposed to just an algorithm for related research Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I am using it as a repository for my literature review and I’ve already imported everything from mendeley. The main benefit is the recommendations that other scientists provide over just a machine based algorithm for related papers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It makes referencing so much easier. It is possible to organise references into projects, and with the word-plugin and many options for citation styles everything has become easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When writing in word, and you have chosen a citation from a certain project, the plugin does not automatically know that you want the references from that project the next time you need a citation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I save a lot of time, but can still accurately insert my citations and references. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

F1000 regularly suggests articles similar to those in your library. Their recommendations are often spot on. Chrome extension works really well. Creates a uniformed naming convention for articles. Allows for easy, efficient searches. You can add appendices and tag articles. F1000 allows for organization into projects, and allows you to invite certain people to those projects. You can also create a personal reading list. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Importing or adding articles from a purely PDF form isn't as seamless as the web browser extension. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great clinical publication search and organization tool. We're experiencing efficiency gains over our old shared folder system. You can create project based folders/libraries and share them across an organization. Fairly straight forward and simple to use. Related F1000 prime can be used as a primary search tool. I prefer it over Google Scholar. Looks like there is a google docs and MS Word add in though I haven't used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Creation of a consolidated clinical article library for our medical device company. F1000 creates an easily searchable, organized library and helps us keep on top of new relevant articles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The design is appealing and looks like a publisher webpage, or like Academia.com. The number of app plug-ins all facilitate reference management. References were easy to import. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I think the hardest part is just transitioning from Mendeley and getting used to working online. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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