Integration of OneNote with Endnote Citation and Bibliography Management Software
When taking notes for for academic research purposes I need to tie article quotations, summaries of the author's original ideas, research results, etc. back to the original source. This works beautifully in MS Word with the EndNote Plugin. Retyping citation details over and over creates room for error and the research and writing process becomes disjointed.
If EndNote was tied to OneNote, I could upload my annotated PDF research articles, create a link to EndNote, tag my notes for specific projects, topics, etc...
By making this connection, OneNote could become a central component of academic workflow!
I agree Mendeley plugin for onenote is awesome and much needed
I agree that this is a must for anyone in academia, undergrads, grad students, faculty, etc. And I think it should be a given in OneNote. Without a built-in solution, there are two workarounds. One is copying and pasting the generic field code from a highlighted EndNote citation and pasting it as-is in OneNote, which can later be retrieved/translated into a CWYW citation after migrating text to Word. The other is a $17 desktop add-in called Bridge for EndNote and OneNote from OneNote Gem. It's better than nothing, but it's frustrating to have to pay for a third-party add-in to do what it should already be able to do!
I am a graduate student in a scientific discipline managing three undergraduate researchers. In order to keep records up to date and available to all, I'm trying to implement OneNote as a shared lab notebook. I'm looking for a way to embed references stored in Endnote 7 within relevant OneNote pages, but it doesn't seem to exist yet. This feature would be extremely useful.
Specially with Mendeley, the most used citation and bibliography management software
Agreed, Very much needed
This is a great idea, I love onenote :) its awesome but I currently dont use it because it doesn't meat my citation needs. Mendelay has awesome citation and text recognition features that I need but if onenote could integrate some of those features I would happily switch!
... the current "automatic quote" feature, where onenote adds a url of the internet page a text is copied from is a nice idea, however u can not have a line of background information after every half sentence in a note. makes it unreadable of course.
Yes please, please pretty please.
Currently workarounds are possible, but make the otherwhise almighy onenote much less usefull and much more error prone for any solid scientific/research/journalism/politics.... work.
Eg. right now one can either
a) create links to a seperate onenote page for each citation (very laborious, immensly crowds up a notebook. not easy to quote every two lines in a flowing text - because inserting a link is quick, but of course u to change the "link text" displayed to a single number or other abreviation. not very secure, because links do break in onenote, even if often anymore)
b) manually add foodnotes (eg sorted by number) to each page (which can lead to errors and make things very laborious when fusing pages/spliting pages and generall moving information around)

I love this idea. It is something I am currently looking for. Maybe not particularly Endnote but some kind of Referencing tool. We now have OneNote Class notebook. This is great for education but it lacks that one piece. When used in conjunction with OneNote Web Clipper, you could have a winner of a product.

I want this feature so desperately that I would be willing to use learn and use ANY citation program (EndNote, Zotero or Mendeley).
Yes Please I need this feature so badly.
Pretty please, add this oh masters of microsoft.
This is its onenotes biggest weakness for the scientific professional that wants to do more than write grocery lists.
Knowing the source of information of every piece of information in scientific notes is of prime importance. (Or really for any kind of notes. wink wink politicians and other fellow humans in similarly, influential positions).
It needs to be easy to write down and recall so that one actually does it. Would do a ton of good to the planet and stuff, i am sure.
Thanks for the otherwise amazing program!

Agreed!!! I'm looking forward to Cite While You Write extension of EndNote in OneNote just as the it in Word/PowerPoint
Agreed. This would be incredible for research!!! Something like the Zotero plugin for Word please!!!
I guess it is time to bring End Note Add Ins just like in Words.
This could be extended to the other major citation management software...
As a graduate student that uses OneNote and EndNote exclusively, this would be a game changer.
Bump! This would make OneNote the ultimate for academic study.
