Description csuehs 2004-05-31 21:22:22 UTC
Endnote, a bibliography program on which I maintain a database of over 3000
scientifc articles, can be used as an add-in with microsoft word, where it can
automatically format in-text citations, footnotes, endnotes, and bibliographies
with ease for a huge selection of journal-specific styles. It would be nice if
Endnote could be used as an add-in in open-office, or at least if your biblio
database could import from an endnote file.  The interest in this project is
that a large part of the scientific community has become endnote-dependent, and
having an alternative to the microsoft-endnote couple would attract users who,
like myself, are discouraged because we don't have a similar advantage in
open-office.  I also recommend to those working on the biblio end of things to
check out endnote for very useful features.

Please have a look at this. You can besser tell if it's just a duplicate or a
new enhancement proposal.
Thank you

Thank you for the comments regarding Endnote. 
Unfortunately, I do not think there is much we can do about making Endnote 
work with Openoffice, this would have to be done by the Endnote developers, or 
they would have to supply the information about how to do inter-work with 
their product, and then some someone would have to volunteer to do the work. 
The Bibliographic project is aware of Endnote's features and it is a model for 
the functionality we would like to build into Openoffice.  
Regarding Importing Endnote files, check whether Endnotes can export bibtex 
format as we have an experimental bibtex import filter. There are also 
bibliographic conversion utilities so it may be possible. Write to if you need some help. 
I will set this request to be a duplicate to the head bibliographic 
improvement issue # 4260

Officially, Endnote 7 works together with OpenOffice - not in the way comparing
MS Word - but with a so-called "RTF Document Scan". I have not tested it yet
because I am fine with my own solution...
