Using paperpile with Microsoft Word



@KCF Please stay tuned, we should have something to announce here on the forum for the fall writing season :slight_smile:


Thank you Stefan. :slightly_smiling_face:I know you all are working hard on this. I look forward to seeing what you have for us. Please keep us updated - I know you all think it isn’t important, but regular status updates are super-helpful for those of us struggling with the current situation.


Hi Stefan et al,

I appreciate you and your team’s openness about paperpile’s development. Just to let you know I am working on a manuscript where my team and I use Mendeley (since it’s paid for by our University and it has a Word plugin, and moving our collaborators and sponsors to Gdocs is not feasible) to add references to our manuscripts.

Mendeley’s user experience is awful. References don’t transfer smoothly as we share the document with each other, their selector window doesn’t show the whole reference (doesn’t even show up if you maximized your word document on a mac) and often times their library doesn’t sync reliably.

I have used paperpile as my main citation manager for a couple of years and I would love to move my entire team to paperpile provided a solid word plugin. I can’t be the only one in this context.

TLDR If you guys release a solid word plugin it would be a game changer and address an unmet market need- please don’t forget about the word plugin.

Keep up the good work
