Hi Julie,

I shared this with the PNW team working on revising our Author’s Guide.

We think it’s an important resource to include as we update our guidance for authors re: “Bibliographic Citation.”

I am putting together some basic info communicating the value to authors in using a bibliographic citation management software (EndNote, Zotero).

Essentially, I need to communicate “what’s in it for them” and convince them to adopt bibliographic citation management as a “best practice.”

We suspect a potential barrier to authors adopting EndNote as a bibliographic citation management software might be licensing fees.

Do you happen to know if the Forest Service has a blanket, institutional license for EndNote software?

The reason I ask is I know sometimes academic institutions have a group license (example: UT-Knoxville – http://libguides.utk.edu/endnote).

The CIO lists EndNote as a “pre-approved” software, but does not comment on license availability.

Thanks for any info,
