  1. I use Evernote for some fairly extensive research, and some more robust tools for managing this would be appreciated. In particular, quote management tools. Features that I would like to see include: Highlight colours. "Quote blocks" (I currently use code blocks for big quotes but they are a bit fiddly). Tagged highlights (e.g. a tag for the author or subject of the quote). Quote compiling: a dynamic list of all highlights, with the ability to sort by tag. I currently use an app called PDFExpert for highlighting PDFs, due to it having multiple highlight colours and a dynamic list of highlights/notes (though you cannot tag quotes).
  2. Evernote is already used by many as a study, research, and creative tool. Its power as a learning acquisition tool could be drastically increased with an incremental learning tool; currently, the only other company using this method is the famed Supermemo, but its interface is far less developed than Evernote. I suggest adding an "incremental reading" option to the web-clipper tool, whereby one can highlight important text right within the web-page window, and when saved, it's grouped into a separate incremental reading notebook that provides prompts on when to continue reading articles at the place you left off. Incremental reading is one of the most powerful learning tools available to date--surprisingly, not many people know about this. Essentially, incremental reading is a method of breaking extensive knowledge resources down into component parts that can be assimilated into long-term memory in small increments. Rather than reading a twenty-page research article in a single sitting, one could break that into smaller 5-minute bites spread over a few weeks. This approach leverages the concept of "spaced repetition," which has been scientifically proven to drastically improve knowledge consolidation and recall. You can read more about incremental reading and spaced repetition here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incremental_reading
  3. Hi Evernote, Can you give any insight on the Evernote text engine? I've heard that it was different on each platform, and not from a unified Latex or other standardized text engine. When I try to add chemical formula names like C3H8O I notice that Mac App Evernote doesn't always handle subscripts all that well. Usually it works, but sometimes I have to fight the app. Even the block of text between these two chemicals is acting weird with their formatting. Copy/paste these these two propanols and try to delete the blank space to see if you have the same issue. C3H8O C3H8O Any insights? Any hope of an easy fix? I use PopClip and TextSoap a lot! thanks, Stephen
  4. Dear Evernote members, I am new to Evernote. What drew you to Evernote? How has Evernote impacted your life? I would like to know how it can help me. I love to use a planner, journal, and i do extensive research. I primarily use an Ipad Pro. I need to annotate as well as organize all the research as well as collaborate. What benefits would joining premium afford me? I would love to know the file types that can be migrated to Evernote. I want to use Evernote but i need lots of data. Hit me with it. CGT
  5. Hello, I've been using Evernote user for some years now, firstly during my PhD years and now as a Lecturer. The App has evolved in many very useful ways, especially the full-text search, which is one of the most efficient I've ever used (compared to ReadCube or Zotero for ex.) But there's still some features missing for me (and for other academics I suppose) : 1. an automatic metadata extraction and article identification. I've discovered ReadCube recently and I must admit that this is just fantastic. I've nearly changed my habits and adopted ReadCube... (but as I wrote before, the full-text search is more efficient on Evernote, and habits are difficult to change !). I'm currently using both apps, but this is not a good solution, I'll have to choose in the end... 2. a proper EndNote-like function (or app) for citing ref. on my papers. That would be so great if Evernote could develop some features to look like the others univ. apps (Mendeley, ReadCube and EndNote for ex.) Best,
  6. Hello, I am working on using evernote to track papers im reading or will read. I also want to keep a citation db. Right now, I have my evernote stack full of papers (pdfs) synced to my dropbox. Then mendeley watches that folder so I can get the metadata. I would like to start adding the author keywords as evernote tags. I don't think there is any automated way to do this, but is there a way I can copy a list of tags and paste them as separate tags? Example list: Colour; Image annotation; Image retrieval; Machine learning; Semantic gap; Shape; Texture
  7. I was was wondering how many college students have gone paperless with the help of Evernote. Is it possible? What is your experience? Thanks for your replies in advance! Looking forward to reading from you. If you like this topic, you might also want to have a look here:
  8. tl;dr - We've launched a public alpha of our new visualization tool for Evernote. Try the app here: http://medleynotes.appspot.com. Feedback appreciated! -- I'm part of a team working on a new research project on digital note taking the Aviz visualization group at INRIA (the French national research institute for computer science & automation). The project is focused on understanding digital note taking practices and building visualization tools to help support better management and analysis of digital notes. As the first stage of this project, we've recently launched a web app called Medley (http://medleynotes.appspot.com) that uses the Evernote APIs to generate some simple visualizations that let Evernote users explore their note taking behavior over time and (optionally) contribute anonymized metadata to our research corpus. This is the first stage of a larger digital note taking project in which we're planning to build a number of more sophisticated visual tools for inspecting, analyzing, and organizing digital notes, so we'd appreciate any feedback! Additionally, if you know any other Evernote user groups who might be interested, feel free to forward the link to them or point me in their direction. Thanks! _wes Wesley Willett AVIZ group | INRIA Saclay Île-de-France
  9. Thought I'd start this discussion in 3rd Party mostly to give those developers looking for ideas to develop into applications some inkling of areas that are not being addressed in EN, particularly for writers, researchers, academics, etc. So far, most developers are walking the well-worn path of getting information INTO EN, but few are working on organizing that data and getting it OUT of EN in ways that are useful in producing a written or visual product. I'm sitting on a treasure chest of 5500 notes, but they're a PITA to actually work with when producing product. I don't know if this is a weakness of the EN SDK for output or an oversight by developers. Once a person's notes are tagged pulled into a folder or stack, they are most difficult to organize and reorganize into Storyboards (corkboards) or Flowcharts. Yes, you can turn off automatic sorting, but clicking on a card pulls focus to that card and takes over the screen. If one is working on a draft in EN, you can copy, cut and paste the content of notes into your work, but you can't drag a small representation of that note onto the page you're working on. This would be particularly useful as a placeholder you flesh out an idea around or place two or more notes on the same page weighing which is the better quote. An A/B screen environment would be more than useful; your stack of notes (in free-form sort) on one side as cards, your draft on the other, where you could grab a note and drop it into your draft without losing focus on your draft. Maybe just better Scrivener integration is the answer. So, I see three or four features or products there. There are probably more rattling around in people's head.
  10. I would love to find a plugin for Microsoft Word (Mac in my case) which searched evernote and copy and pasted the contents of the EN note into word. Even better would be if instead of the EN text itself, a field code would be inserted into Word so that updates to EN would be reflected in Word. As an example of what I am thinking about consider EndNote and their plugin for Word, CWYW. The idea is that I keep research notes (quotes) in EN. When I find a mistake in the quote I have to fix it two places. Also, while not difficult, I have to switch from Word over to EN, perform a search, select and copy the text, then switch back to Word and paste. This could be handled by a dialog in Word from an EN plugin. I haven't been able to find anything like this available. If there is something, please let me know. If not, perhaps someone would be interested in developing and selling such a product. Thanx Tim
  11. First I have to admit to a LOT of collecting; different families, census documents, immigration documents, family photos, etc. They are organized by course taken, research documents, family materials. I am wondering if others have either done an organization and can suggest strategies and perhaps (crossed fingers) did this in Evernote. I tried in one other program but it only accepts image files and I need to have both text and images. Looking forward to hearing from others. Marianne Handler
  12. Hi i am new to EN i am using EN for capturing and storing all my research data for my master's thesis. i expect that there will be hundreds of notes and a large number of tags - maybe 50 to 100 i would also like to set up GTD in EN i'm worried that if i set up GTD in the same instance of EN that i use for my research project, the space could be become cluttered and unwieldy. what is the best way for me to manage this? if i keep everything in one instance - how should i set it up? if you suggest two instances, how do i create the second instance? thank you so much for your help -Ethan
  13. Instead of using the best workflow app for uploading text to Evernote (Premium), being in a hurry I used my iPhone camera to capture pages from book, and NOW I am trying to figure out the quickest way to get my text (pages from book/research) uploaded to Evernote?? I) Email each page to my Evernote email account, 2) Create new Evernote note and use camera feature within note to upload text to new note...OR....??? I am also wondering which method allows OCR to be done on text uploading? Will a photo of text be treated as a image or will it be processed as text via Evernote Premium OCR upload process? Also, WHICH apps are best for taking photos of text from a book to upload into our research notebooks? Scanning apps that OCR before uploading to Evernote?? I need quick fix to get this project material uploaded to my Evernote Research Notebook. And also to retrieve the other mounds of research I did using my iPhone camera app, photos of book pages I need to also upload to Evernote to include in my other research notebooks. I am definitely trying to establish a much better workflow for uploading research camera text photos into Evernote. Greatly appreciate the help on this!!
  14. After several years working with Evernote and testing almost any system implementation from GTD to Action Method and etc. I finally developed something on top of Evernote using Workflowy and the principle of Bullet Journal. I am testing it for a while and it works great! Requirements: Evernote Account Evernote Moleskine Notebook Workflowy Account Getting familiar with Bullet JournalBasically, Workflowy works as a daily planner and project planner, Evernote as a content management and digital note-taking platform, and Moleskine as a analog note-taking platform. If you are getting interested start reading it in detail, I call it: Workflowy Journal
  15. OneNote Binder Tailored for Academic Researchers and Writers I just ran across this blog about using OneNote for research, and thought I'd share it here since so many users post questions here about Evernote vs OneNote. I can say that after having read the blog and watched the video that it is quite impressive. I learned that OneNote has more features than I previously knew. From the blog: Here's a few OneNote features that I found very interesting: Notebook sharing and real-time collaboration [NOT available in EN] with othersDeep searching across notebooks, in one notebook, or in one section (including Boolean searching [NOT available in EN] and use of quotation marks to search for exact wording)Searching for words in audio and video notes/content [NOT available in EN]Nesting of notebook sections groups [NOT available in EN]Page templates [NOT available in EN]Automatic versioning of OneNote pages [NOT available in EN]Syncs across all devices [just like EN]Nesting of Notebook Sections, subpages under pages, with the ability to collapse and expand subpages [NOT available in EN]Password protecting of tabs and sections [NOT available in EN]AFAIK, the only areas where Evernote is clearly superior to OneNote are: Easy sync across more devicesMuch better Web Page capture with EN Clipper and EN Clearly [i believe OneNote can capture web pages ONLY as a picture, NOT as HTML text like EN]There are probably other areas where EN is better, and I'm sure my friends here will be quick to point these out.
  16. I just discovered Evernote and kinda become a fan, mostly after watching your videos. You've done a fantastic job. I think part of the success is due to the personal development ingredients. I confess I never really succeed to determine myself to do the right to thing, although generally I am so passionate of my work that I stay after hours just to study one problem or another and to try the best way to write that article... A bit about me. I am in the research / teaching field in an University of Medicine in a small town in Romania. Because all other medical centers have more research experience the get all research money. So we have to rely on what we have, few equipment and reagents. So, to compensate we must found new ways to help the senior researchers and to try to get to as many conferences as we can, to absorb very much information and to write good research papers that could be published. I work in the microbiology field and do a lot of online scanning for ideas for my classes and books and conference papers and so on. No problem, but on top of it we must do other things, like some paperwork for faculty, cause I'm the assistant of department head, and also the assistant/secretary of the chief of medical analysis laboratory (the same person) . In the laboratory more paperwork, a lot of small routine things that kinda disrupt her and mine focus of mind and at the end of the day we look back and realized that we've done very little, so we stay more to Finnish the scientific part that is always neglected. I take online classes about all this, waiting, statistics, genetics, managing but I apply to little. So, I discovered evernote from a lecture podcast in which a US professor mentioned how it helped him when he attended a conference, so I grabbed it but let it go cause I have a very slow Android phone. Recently I buyer a tablet, rediscovered evernote and went to a conference where I played more with it. Now about how I organized the system. From 10 years I was searching for some way to synchronize the files between the many computers I have to work. In research and especially in theory one must classify the information he finds in various articles on the same subject. Let's say I study a microbe, let's say staphylococcus, resistance to antibiotics. I must go online and find a description of bacteria, collect many pictures to choose from, find some recent articles about the resistance other researchers encountered, then find old articles to compare the evolution of resistance over time, then analyze statistically my data, compare my results with theirs, and thinking I can bring something new? With manual methods in a world of automated wonders. All these in a bits of time between two classes, two lab tests. Etc. So I'm a researcher, teacher, statistician, designer, lab technician, secretary etc. A different wonder why I didn't excel on any of these. Is my head to small? I permanently doing something, thinking, writing on a piece of paper etc. So in evernote I begin with catalogating information ability. I recreated a bit my folder structure using notebooks. So I have: a doc stack with notebooks on the main interest domain; a personal stack with notes on bills, fotoid, contact info like business cards, To-do lists; a research stack with results, grants opened, opportunities, a notes stack with notes on conferences, presentations, books, articles. Now what I wonder: Q1. In the old computer I had a separated folder on pictures. Now it seems more logical to mix them with text articles and Web clippings. Q2. In the old computer I had a folder with research projects. Seems logical for each project to make a notebook. How should I link the notebook with the relevant articles in the documents stack? Through tags. But if I have a project about antibiotics resistance, I should do separate tags for every bacteria and for every antibiotic used in a project. If I use 10 antibiotics on 10 bacteria that means 20 tags for a note. Nice if you could tag notebooks. I want to easy retrieve the info, evernote to show me that 10 years ago I have studied same bacteria, together with another 19, but I can go to that article and extract the data for bacteria I am interested in. Should I rely on the full text search inside the note or attached documents? I already have 100+ tags and 70 notebooks. And I reviewed just a quarter of my hard drive information. I discovered I had many duplicates, because one time thought that the article belongs to that field, another time I put a similar article in another place cause I thought differently about where it belongs. Or my boss thought different. That's exactly I desperately need the tagging structure of evernote. Just this for now, I see a million problems in transferring my work in evernote and I'm in the process of watching videos and hopefully some of them will resolve. Seems like more information I throw in, more rewarding it gets. Maybe I'll write them in a list as they arose, but I don't wanna bother you with a 10 pages letter. Hope to find here fellow academic researcher who use this prog and share there thoughts Respectfully
  17. How are you using Evernote clearly for research? How does related notes save you time when doing a research project? We recently added the ability to highlight using Evernote clearly, read about it here: http://blog.evernote...nd-highlighter/
  18. Hi! As a chemist, I use Evernote almost everyday. I find it very helpful in keeping electronic copies of my research notebooks via the document camera. So far, Evernote has also added a whole new dimension to keeping a research notebook authentic simply by adding the location and timestamp to each note. The tag and searching features are also very helpful in finding notes that are share the same reaction, procedure, etc. There is one thing, however, that I think that would make things so much easier for me. My hand-written notebooks are usually not sequential. If I am running multiple reactions on a given day, it is often hard to finish writing up a reaction procedure, workup, etc. on the next sequential page. I would find it very useful, if Evernote could incorporate a "Thread" feature, in which one would be able to easily link the previous note and the next note from the current note you're working on (see attachment). Moreover, it could also be nice to be able to search by these "threads" so you can find just another way of grouping them together within one notebook. Workup_of_KBB0366__67_-5.pdf
  19. Im looking for a way to format my projects notes. I like to work quick and therefore i work dirty. This means i randomly make screenshots, copy and paste text form everywhere and pull information from everywhere. This will lead to a monster of a notebook.There is small photo, and really big images, text has still the format it came in will i copied it. So now i want to go in and prettify the note up rearrange photo's, get articles in place, just make it a easy note to read through and present it to a client. Does someone has tips on this? A not is basic HTML right, so isnt there a way to automate it. I like context boosters way of organizing its generated notes. Articles are in columns on top, photos are in a separated box, links all have the same color.
  20. Hello All, I am Swetha, a researcher from Bangalore. I am carrying on a research on online communities. Looking forward to all your co-operation. Regards, Swetha.
  21. Dear Evernote enthusiasts, I am a student in Neuroscience and Psychology and have been using Evernote since 2009. I love Evernote and its potential once you've developed a workflow and personal system. Sadly, many haven't achieved this... My New Year's Resolution (for January) is vague but exciting - write a 80 to 100 page ebook for college students on how to use Evernote for their studies and research. The final result should be available on February 1st, leaving me 27 days to write and publish it. I have figured that students are not using Evernote to its full potential and what they need is a clear and simple guide. I wish I had such a guide when I started at my University. That's why I am creating this. Helping students get more out of their tools and focus on things that matter. The ebook should consist of three parts. Part 1: short introduction and basics of Evernote Part 2: specific advice for college use Part 3: use cases/examples from the community Part 3 (and 2) is where you come into play! I'd love to hear from you how you regularly use Evernote in college. If you are a teacher/professor, tell me about the advice you give to students how to use this nifty little piece of software. Also, if you wish that I cover a specific topic (e.g. citation) I can try to implement your thoughts and ideas (don't worry, I am going to talk about citation). Problems you are facing or things you are struggling with can equally be mentioned here. From having too many notebooks and tags to not knowing how to integrate citation with Evernote properly for example. Let's open the discussion and forum brainstorming! I am very curious. And thanks for your contribution. Only with your help the ebook will be successful. Btw, you can send me a PM anytime too. Flavio
  22. Hey guys, I am now starting to use Evernote as my archive for journalistic purposes - and for that I do have to sort my notes in a chronological order. But this order should not reflect the creation dates of the note but the publication date of the article I clipped. I cannot use something like 1 - , 2- ... because I need the actual publication date to see how stories unfolded. As of now I am putting ddmmyy for the publication date in front of the note title. It works for now but if there is one day a story with say 1xxx notes I will get lost because there is no way to sort the notes in order of the publication date. In my ideal word it would look something like this: 12.3.2013 Bad Thing A happens 13.3.2013 Responsible Person I reacts 14.3.2013 Thing A happens again 15.3.2013 Person I has to step down. Do you got any suggestions?
  23. This is my only snag on going fully paperless. I read a lot of papers for grad school and I keep them all in Evernote. In many of my classes, we have in-class discussions on some papers. Before Evernote, I would keep a copy of the paper open on my laptop and then take notes in my notebook. Though I do have a scanner, I'd like to start taking notes directly in Evernote. However, I've not found a good way to do this yet. Right now, what I do is create a new note with the paper as an attachment. I leave some empty lines at the top of the note for note taking. When discussions reference the paper, I have to scroll or search for the section to look at, then scroll back up to the top to continue taking notes. This is a huge workflow disruption and I often end up not getting the notes I want or skipping the references and just waiting for discussion to resume. Is there a good way to accomplish what I'd like to do?
  24. Hey guys! I'm just a newbie into the Evernote world, but I'm drinking in videos and ebooks like there's no tomorrow. My girlfriend and I working with a research project here at the University here in New England (as students/researchers) with the aim to use Evernote (and a few other tools) as a "2nd Brain" for incoming freshman. It involves integrating an Evernote system of "Best Practices" so that the technology tools help us reach our goal. The goal? Better grades, better productivity, and a better way to learn / work with data. In other words - what many of you guys are GREAT at If you're experienced on Evernote and understand "best practices" that might be functional, I'd love to let you be a part of this project! Please email my girlfriend here: laurendambra@my.uri.edu Developing a functional, efficient, flexible "framework" for Academics is an ART, and I know many of you ar much better artists than the random few Grad Students we have were working on this project! Thanks so much I look forward to learning with you! Best, -Daniel
  25. I saw this morning that Evernote has released two new apps for the iPad. One is intended to aid in remembering and sharing dining experiences, and the other is intended to aid in the remembering of people's faces. Yes, these may be nice and even creative elements in the Evernote repertoire. But has Evernote pursued these at the expense of refinements to the editor suggested in the many fine threads in this forum? I would rather see Evernote remain a thick, strong, beefy, robust product than a thin, fishy, wiry product. Don't become the Google of notes. Remember your roots! Just my 2 cents.
