EndNote customer close-up ahead of X6 & ipad app launch

Last week, Adept’s bibliographic software expert, Stephanie Marshall, travelled around the country with Tilla Edmunds, Product Manager at Thomson Reuters, to hold a series of ultra successful software user meetings. These unique EndNote VIP events (which happen no where else in the world) provide key UK customers in education with a chance to talk to Thomson face-to-face and exchange knowledge. We wanted to bring our roadshow within easy reach of attendees, so we held our meetings at key cities across the country, including Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London. We were pleased to see both new and familiar faces.

Participants got a sneak preview of brand-new EndNote X6 ahead of its official public launch later this summer. They were keen to see the inclusion of a new Sync button to quickly, easily and automatically synchronise desktop and web-based libraries, as well as new record read/unread status indicators and the ability to rate favourite or frequently-used references.

Attendees also got a first look at the keenly awaited EndNote ipad app due out in the autumn to coincide with the planned EndNote X6 Mac release. This new tool will complement EndNote on the desktop by putting on-the-go PDF viewing, annotating and emailing capabilities at the disposal of ipad users. The app also enables users to add, edit, group, copy and email citations, as well as sync them with their EndNote Web account.

Adept and Thomson gained plenty of software feedback, as well as new insight into the needs of our bibliographic software customers in education and research, and the issues they face with maximising the use of EndNote/EndNote Web on campus. A rewarding and enlightening roadshow for all involved.

Our EndNote expertise in demand at DMU eResources Roadshow 2011

Our bibliographic software specialists, Stephanie Marshall and Bob Green, were invited to attend the Annual eResources Roadshow at De Montfort University (DMU) on Wednesday 16th November. The event was hosted by Library Services and provided an excellent opportunity for academic staff and students to meet and quiz representatives from some of the library’s major eResource providers.

Our team was kept extremely busy providing information, answering questions and demonstrating DMU’s site-licensed bibliographic software tools, EndNote and EndNote Web to a wide range of users, from undergraduates still finding their referencing feet, to PHD students and lecturers looking for new ways to manage/use more extensive libraries.

Referencing software road shows a roaring success

Five cities in five days; to coincide with the launch of EndNote X5, Adept’s bibliographic software specialist, Stephanie Marshall, spent the week commencing 20th June touring the UK and Ireland meeting key users/advocates of Thomson Reuters’ popular referencing tools, EndNote, Reference Manager and EndNote Web.

Stephanie was joined on the road show by Mathilda Edmunds, Research Software Product Development Manager from Thomson Reuters. Each event offered site licence contacts and librarians the chance to have their say about current and future software releases, and gain VIP demonstrations of hot-off-the-developer’s-desk releases of EndNote X5 and EndNote Web 3.1.

The meetings were well attended and well received, with participants relishing the chance to talk to EndNote’s creators face to face, as well as share ideas and experiences with other research and information specialists. The Westlaw development team joined the last session on Friday in London, with a view to gauging interest and demand for Westlaw UK compatibility with Thomson’s referencing tools.

Following the demonstration of EndNote X5, favourite new features included the time-saving PDF viewer with the added ability to annotate attachments, plus copy and paste key information from files into records within the same screen. The file attachment and transfer capabilities in EndNote Web also proved to be popular among participants.

These meetings are a yearly occurrence and help the software developers to shape future version of EndNote, Reference Manager and EndNote Web to directly fulfil the emerging research and referencing needs of their users. If you’d like to register your interest in attending future user meetings so you can have your say, please email info@alfasoft.com.

Thomson Reuters releases EndNote X3 for Windows

EndNote with EndNote Web offers new functionality to streamline the researcher workflow

Adept Scientific is pleased to announce the release of a major upgrade to EndNote® for Windows, the bibliographic management software used by millions of researchers, librarians and students worldwide, from the Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters.  Already a time-saver, EndNote X3, including EndNote Web, delivers a collaborative solution that makes users more productive.

EndNote X3 expands ways to group references and find full text when off campus.  Cite While You Write™ now integrates with OpenOffice.org Writer 3, unveils unique support for chemistry styles and more.

“Introducing the Cite While You Write technology for OpenOffice.org Writer, and Apple Pages earlier this year, simplifies reference formatting for new and existing users,” said Keith MacGregor, vice president, Scientific and Scholarly Research at Thomson Reuters.  “EndNote X3 highlights our commitment to the research community by delivering highly-requested features such as new chemistry styles and connectivity with EndNote Web and ResearcherID.”

Format bibliographies in OpenOffice.org Writer 3 and more

EndNote X3 offers more ways to format bibliographies, including the ability to Cite While You Write™ in OpenOffice.org Writer 3.  Now users can search for and insert citations within OpenOffice.org Writer documents and format bibliographies instantly, just as they can in Apple® Pages ’09 and Microsoft® Word.  EndNote X3 now manages multiple bibliographies within a Word document, enabling a paper to have a bibliography at the end of each section, a document, or both.  Additionally, EndNote X3 supports composite styles that group citations by number and letter.

Group references and locate full text in new ways

Users can organise their Custom and Smart Groups by topic, providing more options for viewing and managing their reference groups.  A Group Set can have up to 500 groups per set, and Groups can be re-arranged with a simple drag-and-drop.

Find More Full Text with EZProxy

EndNote X3 increases integration with institutional resources, making it easier to find more full text articles for references automatically.  EndNote X3 employs a new preference for EZProxy, commonly used by researchers and students to access online resources when they are off-campus.

Work on the desktop and Web

EndNote now includes EndNote Web, expanding the work environment for EndNote users and allowing them to choose the best environment — desktop or Web — for the task at hand.  With EndNote Web researchers can collect references when away from their desks, transfer references between the desktop and Web and collaborate with colleagues by sharing EndNote groups.  EndNote users can also use EndNote Web to organise personal publication lists for ResearcherID, a free online author community, and view personal citation metrics in ResearcherID, complete with dynamic links to Times Cited detail from ISI Web of ScienceSM, the Thomson Reuters premiere online platform for citation data.

Other features of the upgrade include:

Compare duplicate records side-by-side for easy review.

  • Start EndNote faster — EndNote X3 loads most popular content files and users can add files as desired.
  • Use more options when compressing EndNote libraries — choose all references or a selection, with or without file attachments.
  • Connect and publish with 3,900+ connection files, 700+ Import files and 3,700+ journal styles!
