WriteNote is a web-based bibliographic management package, produced by ISI
ResearchSoft, and designed for students and researchers. It provides tools to
capture and organise your references and assists in the creation of properly
formatted documents and bibliographies. It also provides assistance with information
handling skills during the literature search and writing phases of the research
process. As it is web-based you can access your reference database(s) from any
