Re: Bibliographies & Citation Integration

The use of Endnote vs. LaTeX varies in academia depending on the field of endeavor. My colleagues in Computer Science and Physics always talk about LaTeX. In Information Systems (my field of endeavor) though, Endnote is the most popular choice. The document format used by Endnote is horribly incompatible across its own versions and the "Cite while you write" feature works in select versions of MS Office. Repeated requests from me to make Endnote compatible with OO.o have gone unheard by Endnote's makers. I've looked at Bibus, and yes, its a pain to set up. Maybe a week or two with it, and I'll be set. I'll have to take Zotero out for a spin sometime soon.
