What do you do when you're citation management bankrupt? I have stuff, but it's a huge mess.
May 29, 2012
Put stuff in whatever thing is easiest for you to get the most stuff into it (and get it in most accurately). Then think about which thing works best with where you usually get stuff from (databases, web, etc.) and which thing you're most likely to actually use. Then move the stuff you started with over to this thing (if it's a different thing). -
Right now it's split between Mendeley and Zotero with minimal metadata. Of course most of the stuff I want has no metadata attached to the things. -
mendeley can automatically sync with your zotero library, so go with zotero for gathering stuff (Z is also a LOT better at gathering stuff). Then you can decide later about which one you want to stick with. -
why does zotero play horribly with science direct? -
I don't know, but if you ever figure it out, tell me. ARGH. -
I'm sure we can blame elsevier for this somehow. -
I'm up for that. -
honestly, the fact that the stuff i (and by extension my users) actually need to keep track of doesn't play well with a lot of stuff makes it mess and we're all lazy. stupid tech reports. -
Tech reports are the worst. It doesn't matter which one you pick, it's just a slog. My Zotero works fine with Science Direct now. I don't know why. -
Actually, I take it back. I find that the fields Zotero provides for reports are much more intuitive than EndNote's. -
