Upgrading EndNote search capability: Zotero

Introduction

EndNote is a great bibliography software that is able to integrate excellently with Pages (OsX) or Microsoft Words. Unfortunately, it’s integrated search capability is largely dependent on which library you can connect to. For me who work in UKM, the only option that we have to access full text journals is through a gateway called Pubmed. Now, Pubmed function with EndNote by passing information through a server which has limited search capability (if you compare it to google). So if you use endnote for extended period you would find that google scholar would be your best search engine.

Two problem you will face when using google scholar is (1). the content ounce exported into endnote is not complete and (2). you are only able to get (import) one reference at a time. The latter has a solution.. Zotero.

Presenting Zotero!

Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It lives right where you do your work—in the web browser itself.
