I've been using Word 2007 this past week to write an article (my first time using it) and while I find the change in commands disconcerting, I really like the citation feature - it's the sort of thing I always thought an open source application would develop first and better. Now Microsoft has added a set of tools, described in detail here, to support use by the scientific community. The tools include an application to add a Creative Commons license to the document.

The suite of tools is impressive. It includes a virtual research environment (VRE) to allow research teams to share data, an authoring tool to capture metadata during the authoring process, a hosted e-journal service, a repository, and a math add-on.
