Popular bibliographic management solution now adds references from full text PDF files, addresses new journal style requirements and more.
Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia PA) has announced the release of EndNote® for Mac® OS X, the bibliographic management and publishing solution used by millions of researchers, librarians and students Worldwide. With EndNote X4, available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts), researchers can import and search PDF files, collaborate more with EndNote Web, use new Cite While You Write™ features and more.
“EndNote X4 for Mac OS X introduces new efficiencies for users including the simple drag and drop of PDF files that saves multiple steps while building their research library,” said Keith MacGregor, Vice President, Thomson Reuters. “This and other new features such as the enhanced interoperability between EndNote and the ResearcherID author community furthers our commitment to provide solutions that automate processes whenever possible, enabling users to focus on their research and writing instead of the technical details.”
Create new records from PDF files
Users can now import a full text PDF – even a folder containing multiple PDF files – to add new references with the full text attached. Mac users have the added advantage of being able to drag a PDF file onto the EndNote icon on the Dock to add a new reference to their library. EndNote extracts basic bibliographic information using the Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) and CrossRef® data to create new records in a reference library. PDF files are now searchable in EndNote providing users with greater depth in exploring their reference collection.
Simplify collaboration with EndNote Web
EndNote users can access their references anywhere and collaborate with colleagues using their EndNote Web account. Researchers can transfer up to 10,000 references between the desktop and Web and search shared groups when selecting references to cite, making it easy to collaborate with others on research projects. Reference lists can be sorted by Times Cited, date added to the library or date modified to locate references quickly. And authors can use EndNote Web to manage their personal publication lists for the free ResearcherID community, where members are identified uniquely. References stored in the EndNote Web group are visible instantly in the public community where citation metrics are provided by Web of Knowledge(SM).
Use new Cite While You Write features
EndNote X4 introduces new formatting options for citing scholarly papers properly. EndNote links in-text citations to the bibliography automatically in Microsoft Word – with or without hyperlinks. Users also have increased options for formatting footnotes with customisable short forms as well as full support of the APA 6th style including a multiple author ellipse. The new combined Edit and Manage Citations command consolidates the most frequently used functions in one Cite While You Write window. Users can view a report of references cited in a Word document with a new auto-group in the EndNote library.
Other features of the upgrade include:
• Create new groups by comparing, combining and suppressing existing groups.
• Modify references easily in the new Quick Edit tab on the main library window.
• Edit references when comparing duplicates.
• Expand library retrieval results by adding wildcards within search terms.
• Cite While You Write is available in over 4,500 journal styles.
