Alternatives to EndNotes

Without reference management software, writing long papers sometimes can end as a disaster. As I was used to write paper using latex, it is not a problem util now when I need to write in MS Word.

OK, I know EndNotes is the de-facto standard for Word to manage references, but it is a bit expensive.

Fornunately, there are free/opensource alternatives we can use, please refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_reference_management_software for more info.

I tried Zotero with Word, and found it is so convenient, although it supports a few reference/citation styles. But that's enough for me so far.

Hope it keep going and supports more features.

Comparison of reference management software on Wikipedia provides tables of features. Zotero and Connotea are both included.
