We use Reference Manager and find it very good.  It is user friendly, searches
quickly, and will put references into 100 preset journal formats or
customised ones.  It takes WordPerfect 5.0 (I'm not sure about 5.1), and will
accept medline downloads, as well as downloads from the CD-medline we use.
There is a module which I've not got which allows you to "splice" references
in from the database as you write, rather than batch-processing the document.
We've also found the suppliers receptive to comments and criticisms, and
updates occur once or twice a year.

It is supplied by
