Research teams rejoice – EndNote X7.4.2 now offers Library Sharing

With the introduction of library sharing in the new EndNote X7.4.2 update, Thomson Reuters has delivered a key requirement which is top of the wish-list of many EndNote and Reference Manager users around the World. This much-awaited functionality enables EndNote X7.4.2 users to share their entire reference collection with up to 14 other EndNote X7.4 users. Everyone invited to join the library can access, add to, and edit the shared library, which is automatically synced to ensure it stays up to date. Everyone in the group can also access the full text attachments, annotations and sticky notes from other library members.

The new shared library feature streamlines and strengthens the process of co-editing any library by allowing all users to access the actual library directly (rather than a saved copy) in real time. That means users can be sure they’re all working with the latest information at the same time.

So whether you want to start sharing your existing EndNote library or you’re looking to work with other researchers to build a new shared library from scratch, EndNote X7.4.2 will work for you.

EndNote X7.4.2 also makes an excellent alternative for Reference Manager users who’ve been holding out for a reference management solution that supports collaborative research and library sharing, as well as provides compatibility with the latest operating systems and platforms. There are special low crossgrade prices that let Reference Manager users simply ‘upgrade’ to EndNote rather than pay full price for a brand new licence. And there’s no complicated conversion process – EndNote automatically migrates your library and Word documents from Reference Manager to EndNote! Read our ‘How to’ guide to learn more.

EndNote boosts child health

It’s probably the most famous children’s hospital in the world. Over the past 162 years Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has saved or transformed the lives of thousands upon thousands of children. It’s also a centre of pioneering research in paediatric medicine, with an impressive record of innovation in cancer, heart and lung diseases, neuroscience, immunology and more.

As at all major research institutes, clinical researchers at GOSH use EndNote bibliographic software to locate and cite the vast literature resources in paediatric medicine. But until recently, and through a technical anomaly (researchers at GOSH actually work for a separate organisation), hands-on medical staff haven’t had the same access to EndNote except by buying an individual licence – not an affordable proposition for over 200 staff.

An interesting new case study describes how a senior librarian at GOSH, determined to provide equal access to such an essential research resource, overcame financial and organisational hurdles to ensure clinical as well as research staff are now able to use EndNote via a site licence. That means they’re able to keep abreast of all the latest literature, therapies and techniques – and the ultimate beneficiaries are, of course, the children they treat.

Full house for EndNote presentation at LILAC 2014

We did more than just exhibit at this year’s LILAC conference! On the Thursday24th April, Adept’s resident EndNote guru and experienced software trainer, Bob Green, also delivered an enlightening workshop to a packed audience all eager to find out how EndNote can provide a more structured, thorough way to gather and manage research compared to relying on search engines and separate storage methods. The session was well received by EndNote users and newcomers alike, and there were plenty of questions to fuel the discussion at the end.

In addition, one lucky LILAC visitor won themselves a copy of EndNote simply by visiting the Adept stand and entering their business card in our free prize draw. The lucky winner is Bee Sen Gupta from the Greenwich School of Management, London. Congratulations! We’re sure EndNote will become your indispensable, personal research assistant and save you hours of time on literature hunts.

If you didn’t catch us at LILAC then don’t worry – you’ll find the bibliographic software team out and about again at the Health Libraries Group Conference 2014 (CILIP) from 24th to 25th July in Oxford, UK – the place to be for anyone interested in health and social care library and information issues. If you’re passing, why not come pick our brains about EndNote, gain one-to-one advice and get personal software demonstrations?  Learn more about CILIP Conference here.

Loving the library all year long

We already know just how important libraries, librarians and information professionals are! They do an amazing job of providing people with access to the information they need to further their knowledge and support their work. Our top-selling referencing tool, EndNote, can help to make their job easier – improving research productivity and managing literary information for library staff and users alike. That’s why librarians are a key focus for us, not just on National Libraries Day this Saturday, but for the whole year round! In fact, we’ll always jump at the chance to meet these champions of discovery and that’s why we’ll be attending four upcoming events this year aimed at librarians and information professionals. Look out for the Adept Scientific EndNote stand.

EndNote embraces the digital revolution at Umbrella 2013

This week our intrepid EndNote team travelled to The University of Manchester for CILIP’s Umbrella 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition. The event brings together Library and Information Professionals across the country to share ideas and new ways to improve literacy, access to information and the transfer of knowledge.

A key theme for the day is how libraries are keeping up with the changing nature of the information landscape in today’s digital age. Thanks to the web, web-based and mobile technologies, people have greater access to more research material than ever before. It’s a trend that EndNote has grasped with both hands. No longer confined to the desktop, you’ll also find its renowned research and referencing tools available in varying degrees of complexity on the Web or on an iPad. And thanks to automatic library syncing, you’re able to access, manage and coordinate your library anywhere!

Ever-evolving EndNote notches up another nifty release

You’d think an established product like EndNote might have run out of ‘development’ steam by version 17, but the World’s most popular, most comprehensive reference managing tool doesn’t show any sign of staying still. Quite the contrary! With customers needs changing all the time and mobile technology opening up new possibilities in accessing, building and sharing research around the clock, across the globe, it seems there’s no limit to EndNote’s growth!

In this latest release, EndNote X7.4 fulfils several requirements identified by users. Now users can organise their bibliography in Microsoft Word with subheadings for different categories, as well as insert and edit citations, and generate a bibliography in PowerPoint (Windows only). PDF capture and management is easier thanks to a new Auto Import folder. This works in the background to create references from your PDFs, then store them in auto smart groups so they’re easy to track. In addition, you now have the ability to define a PDF naming convention for easier identification of attachments.

There are numerous other tweaks and improvements throughout the software to streamline the research workflow, automate and simplify syncing between web, desktop and mobile libraries and extend EndNote’s citing, writing and reference managing capabilities.

You can visit our EndNote web pages to read more about the latest version, but the real proof of the pudding is in the eating, so why not download a free 30-day demo for Windows here and put the software to the test?

2013 Bibliographic Software VIP briefings draw biggest turnout yet

EndNote site licence champions and trainers turned out in force at our VIP briefings last week to gain a sneak peak at EndNote X7.4, to grill Thomson Reuter’s Senior Director of Product Innovation, Jason Rollins, and take an active role in the software’s development. In fact, the London meeting saw our biggest crowd to date, with over 30 customers eager to air any issues and offer their product suggestions.

It’s great to see that so many of our site licence contacts are keen to take part, particular because these briefings play such an important role in directing the way EndNote develops and ensuring it meets users’ needs; it was feedback from last year’s event that prompted Thomson Reuters to bring forward EndNote X7.4′s release date to better fit in with the academic calendar.

Attendees got to see what the developers have planned for EndNote in 2013 with a view to advancing the tool to stay ahead in today’s more competitive market place. Thomson Reuters realise that increasingly, our EndNote champions are struggling to justify the cost of an EndNote licence when there are so many free alternatives available. In response, Thomson Reuters has just released FREE EndNote Basic – an enhanced and re-branded version of EndNote Web. EndNote Basic provides the perfect starting point for undergraduates looking for a free web-based reference management solution. Then, as their research grows in the course of their studies and their referencing needs become more demanding, they can progress to EndNote on the desktop and enhanced online functionality.  EndNote Basic lets you store up to 50,000 references and 2GB worth of attachments online, search 5 of the most popular database providers and output in 21 of the most popular bibliographic styles.

Why choose EndNote Basic over other free bibliographic tools? Because it forms the first step to using and becoming familiar with one of the most comprehensive reference managing solutions around; a package which is still regarded by many as the industry standard. Any EndNote-experienced students and researchers could be off to a flying start with employers! What’s more, many free referencing tools don’t offer an upgrade route should the reference collection outgrow limited online storage provision. With EndNote Basic, users can quickly and easily move up to the full-featured desktop edition and transfer their entire research at the click of the ‘Sync’ button.

As far as EndNote X7.4 goes, we can’t reveal too much until it’s officially launched, but we can tell you that search facilities have been improved and Thomson are still expanding PDF management tools. What’s more, new reference types available with the latest release also reflect the growing importance of social media. Stay tuned to our blog for more detailed information about new features.

These meetings are a annual occurrence so if you missed out on this year’s events, why not register for the EndNote JISCmail discussion list to make sure you’re first in line for the 2014 VIP briefings?

What’s new in November with EndNote?

Thomson Reuters has been particularly busy this month; they’ve released a new X6.0.1 update for Windows and Mac to enhance and maintain the software’s comprehensive functionality; and caused a buzz with news of an introductory offer on the eagerly-anticipated EndNote iPad App due for launch January 2013!
