Just realised I did not have a post for Evernote vs OneNote (2017).
Oh well. Let us just get to it.
I no longer am an Evernote Premium subscriber, as I am basically no longer willing to pay (afford) for it due to my status as a full-time student. So Evernote has been relegated to a simple archiving or read-later solution.
Due to this, I was forced to used OneNote. What was surprising is that the more I use OneNote, the more I fell in love with it. As of now, I am using OneNote for all of my PhD work. The way I am using OneNote right now, it has pretty much replaced Microsoft Word and Mendeley. I only use these 2 when I need to submit my work to my Supervisors to edit etc.
Previously I used to start drafting and writing in Word and save all references in Mendeley (including writing notes etc). But for now, I store all my references and a page in OneNote. I insert the PDF in the page, which allows me to read it from my phone or anywhere and write my notes and thoughts all in that page.
And when I start drafting, I create another page on OneNote and starts to brainstorm and input all my ideas and thoughts. And because my references and PDF are all in the same Notebook, I can easily copy and paste my thoughts, analysis of the paper etc.
Another advantage of drafting using one note is that you can insert each paragraph as a textbox, thus when you want to rearrange paragraphs etc, or make whatever edits it is far easier than in words.
So as now 5th of April 2018. OneNote is the winner for me. Evernote sadly has been relegated to a simple archiving software.
