  1. Is formatting a journal *that* hard? As loathsome as I find EndNote, it at least does a reasonably good job at what it does, and most journals have templates for the other parts. There are plenty of other EndNote alternatives out there, too.

    The most important trick is to be sure to make heavy use of the style features of your word processor (though Word’s style system can be incredibly frustrating to use, but EndNote now supports Pages, which is much less frustrating in that regard).

  2. Lyx and zotero or some other bibtex system will save you a world of hurt. Lyx has a small learning curve and you can download templates for any journal. You focus on writing and let lyx handle the presentation and latex. Works on macs, pc, and linux.
