    In conjuction with MS you may want to consider using EndNote for your future research.

    Product Information, via Google

    Millions of researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians use EndNote (patent pending) to search online bibliographic databases, organize their references, images and PDFs in any language, and create bibliographies and figure lists instantly. Instead of spending hours typing bibliographies, or using index cards to organize their references, they do it the easy way—by using EndNote! EndNote for Windows and Macintosh is a valuable all-in-one tool that integrates the following tasks into one program:

    * Search bibliographic databases on the Internet
    * Organize references, images, PDFs and other files
    * Construct your paper with built-in manuscript templates
    * Watch the bibliography and figure list appear as you write!

    Search bibliographic databases on the Internet: *
    * Using EndNote's Connect...and Search... commands, you can search Internet databases just as easily as you can search your EndNote library on your computer.
    * Simply open any of more than 1,500 predefined connection files and you're online and searching.
    * Access hundreds of remote bibliographic databases, including Web of Science, Ovid, PubMed, the Library of Congress, and university card catalogs from EndNote.
    * Connect to data sources worldwide—EndNote provides MARC formats that support native language libraries around the world.
    * Search remote bibliographic databases using EndNote's simple search window—great for locating specific references.
    * Export references directly from Web of Science, Highwire Press, Ovid, OCLC, ProQuest and more.
    * Save and load search strategies at the click of a button.
    * Drag and drop references between EndNote libraries in one simple step. No additional importing required.

    Organize references, images, PDFs and other files in a library: *
    * Create an unlimited number of libraries of any size: In EndNote, bibliographic data is entered into a record by filling out a simple template that has the proper fields displayed for a given type of reference. There are 41 customizable reference types, covering a variety of materials from Ancient Texts to Web Pages, each with up to 52 fields for entering references and linking to PDF and image files. And you can organize references in any Unicode-supported language.
    * Organize image files: Track images including charts, figures and equations with a caption, keywords and more.
    * Store PDF and other files with your EndNote library: Organize up to 45 files per reference in the "File Attachment" field. Drag and drop files onto a reference for auto-linking and storage with the library references—links never break.
    * Group references: Create up to 500 custom groups in each EndNote library to access subsets of references instantly.
    * Customize the reference library display: Click-sort column headings, adjust column widths, and choose up to 8 fields to display.
    * Preview formatted references: Using the Preview pane in the library window, you can preview selected references in over 2,800 bibliographic styles.
    * Includes hundreds of import filters: There are many sources of bibliographic data that can be used to help you build your EndNote library of references. EndNote includes over 600 import filters for a variety of online database providers (e.g. Ovid, EBSCO). You can create and modify import filters as well. Once you've downloaded the references in a tagged format, choose the appropriate import filter to import the data into your EndNote library.
    * Link your EndNote records to the Web: Link your references to full-text articles or other material on the Web. You'll find links created automatically when you connect and search online resources within EndNote.
    * Use Term Lists for consistent data entry: Term Lists store glossaries of keywords, author names, or any other terms that are important to managing your references. As you enter new terms, EndNote suggests terms from these lists to facilitate data entry and to ensure terms are entered consistently. Pre-defined Journal Term Lists are provided for biomedicine, chemistry, and the humanities—complete with common abbreviations of journal names used in bibliographies.
    * Searching: Use Quick Search in the toolbar to search all fields in an EndNote library, or the Search... command for additional options. You can limit your searches to specific fields such as Author name, Year, or Keywords and select a variety of operators.
    * Global Editing: Use the Change Text, Change Field, and Move Field commands to modify existing references. These commands can automatically add a term to all or some of your references. These are useful tools for labeling groups of references as well as for fixing common typos or spelling mistakes.
    * Sorting: Set up multi-level sorts on up to five fields of your choice such as Year, Journal, and Title. Each level can be sorted in ascending or descending order. Column headings in the reference library window provide instant sorts on the displayed fields.
    * Customize Settings: The settings for customizing your EndNote library display, bibliographic preferences, and other options are organized in one easy-to-access Preferences panel.
    * Running EndNote on a Network: Use EndNote on a network and share libraries across mixed platforms.
    Use Microsoft Word templates to create your manuscript: *
    EndNote includes built-in Word templates to guide you through the exacting manuscript requirements of publishers. You can select a predefined template from the Word > File > New dialog menu or from the EndNote > Tools menu to begin your publishing process. A Wizard is ready to assist you with the creation of a new manuscript. Completed manuscripts are now submission-ready with all the key elements in addition to EndNote’s instantly formatted in-text citations, bibliography and figure list.
    Watch bibliographies appear as you write! *
    * Create instant bibliographies in Microsoft Word: Locate citations in Microsoft Word with Cite While You Write technology. Watch the bibliography appear as you insert citations in your manuscript.
    * Collaborate with colleagues easily: A traveling library of cited references follows the Microsoft Word document. When you're ready to send your paper to colleagues, the references travel with it. You can also transfer references directly from colleagues’ papers to use in your EndNote library with the export traveling library feature.
    * EndNote handles even the trickiest bibliographic details: EndNote includes bibliographic features that address a wide range of formatting issues in the humanities, biomedicine, physical, life, and social sciences. Here are some of the advanced formatting features EndNote handles with ease:
    * Shortened forms of references in footnotes, including "Ibid."
    * Numbered text notes within a bibliography
    * Options for anonymous works
    * Hanging indent option
    * Capitalization options for author names or title
    * Includes more than 2,800 bibliographic styles: EndNote comes with more than 2,800 predefined bibliographic styles for the leading journals. Each style can be modified, or you can create new styles.
