Mainstream citation/bibliographic software (e.g. EndNote) does not fully support OpenOffice.org and by extension NeoOffice. However, it is still possible to use some of the citation software with NeoOffice, and there are also alternative software packages that do work with NeoOffice.

Although there is an OpenOffice.org issue filed on the problem, the changes will most likely have to be made in the citation app, not in OpenOffice.org or NeoOffice. However, citation app makers seem reluctant to expend effort to fully support anything but Microsoft Office until there is "sufficient" demand, so the best course of action for an end-user is to send feedback to the citation app maker requesting full support.

  • NoodleBib a web based Bibliographic tool. Recommended by a NeoOffice user in this trinity thread
  • Zotero "is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources." (quoted from the site.) The project provides extensions for NeoOffice (and OpenOffice.org) to integrate Zotero and NeoOffice. See this thread on trinity for a brief discussion of it.
