Looking for an EndNote alternative?
Frustrated with the citation/bibliography generators out there?
We did the research for you so you don’t have to. So what is the difference between all the citation generators available out there? Which is the best option for you? The one that will suit you the best?
We created a comprehensive chart below on why you might want to use Citationsy or not. Don't worry, no matter what you choose, there will be no hard feelings. We at Citationsy believe that transparency is key. We want the best for you, and in that we might not be able to provide you with some specific things you need.

Endnote is a desktop application that allows you to download the software onto your computer storage space and more for heavy duty management of research projects and papers.
Think of it as for those who have the time and money to invest and learn about the software before getting into the flow of their work.
Honestly i dont know why the uni push EndNote as this amazing piece of software it’s actually beyond useless— Ella Hillyard (@EllaHillyard1) July 21, 2020
I've never felt an anger like the anger I feel towards Endnote and Word right now.— Patrick Kerstein (@PatrickKerstein) May 14, 2020
EndNote is the worst. I had multiple nights of yelling at EndNote and my computer as EndNote would crash Word. And then I lost my library. Still not sure how. And I had to start over from scratch. Never again. Clearly I have very strong opinions about this lol— Jayme McReynolds (@McreynoldsJayme) August 8, 2018
I got Endnote at the start of my PhD (I PAID for it!) & it was sooo awful,I spent DAYS trying to programme it myself (literally) until I gave up because it became incompatible with my version of Word for Mac!!! So I had to move to Zotero (an absolute DREAM in comparison) anyway!!— Dr Marta Zboralska (@marta_zboralska) October 8, 2019
my endnote right now takes about 4 minutes every time I call it to insert a citation. It is a gigantic pain in the ass, but I do not have time to fix it right now.— Dr Mark D. Scherz (@MarkScherz) January 15, 2019
Me: I just want to edit this one reference, please don’t crash and freeze my word document.— Alex Dufford (@ajdneuro) May 28, 2019
Imo endnote is the worst reference manager by far— Dr Dani Rabaiotti (@DaniRabaiotti) January 15, 2019
