EndNote® Web now available as a eduserv Chest Licence to the UK higher and further education community

Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) is pleased to announce an amendment to the agreement between eduserv Chest and Thomson Reuters with the addition of site-wide licences for EndNote Web available to Higher Education Sites, Further Education Sites, Research Councils and selected Associated Sites in the United Kingdom (UK).

Under the revised eduserv Chest agreement institutions can now add EndNote Web to their EndNote desktop site licences free of charge or purchase a yearly licence for EndNote Web as a stand-alone package.

EndNote Web is an intuitive Web-based bibliographic referencing tool that is ideal for undergraduate and further education students who do not require the full power and flexibility of a desktop package. It provides the tools to help write professional essays, papers and dissertations that contain correctly formatted citations and bibliographies.

Designed to work with EndNote desktop, EndNote Web has the flexibility of the internet and the reliability its predecessor. References can be transferred between the two packages with ease to enable students to continue their work wherever they are.

EndNote Web puts minimal strain on university or college IT resources because, as a web-based research solution, individual user accounts are held on the Thomson Reuters server. So when updates are released, they go live immediately and are automatically available when users log in to their accounts – no IT intervention required.

With EndNote Web:

Students can collect references and cite them in papers
Librarians can direct students to the school’s subscription content
Professors and teachers are able to reinforce the principles of correctly citing sources
Deans and administrators maximise the value of online resources and improve students’ paper writing skills
Information Technology managers to save time with a cost effective, Web-based tool hosted by Thomson Reuters.

“EndNote Web helps a new segment of users streamline citing references and formatting bibliographies and also provides EndNote desktop users with an online storage option for times when they are away from their desks,” said David L Kochalko, Vice President Business Development, Thomson Reuters.

Dynamic Web-based research solution from the makers of EndNote, Reference Manager, ProCite and RefViz

Adept Scientific plc (Letchworth, Herts), the UK’s leading distributor of specialist personal computer products, announces the immediate availability of EndNote Web from Thomson Reuters (Carlsbad, California).

Access to all the best bits of EndNote anytime, anywhere via the Internet; that’s EndNote Web in a nutshell! What better role model for Thomson Reuters’ web-based research tool than the proven and hugely popular EndNote on the desktop; a firm, time-saving favourite with millions of researchers around the globe.

EndNote Web’s purpose is two-fold; designed primarily to help undergraduates capture, organise and cite the references they find during their studies, it also provides a useful storage stop-gap for EndNote desktop users on the move. Users are able to search ISI Web of Knowledge, PubMed and hundreds of online library databases, then import and edit references in a personal Web account.

February 2008 saw the release of EndNote Web 2.1, introducing new customisation facilities that enable site contacts to define the import filters, connection files and output styles available to all users onsite through EndNote Web. This is useful for those sites wishing to set their own standard bibliographic formats or remove connection files that are less important (and potentially confusing) to their members. Site-wide installation of the EndNote Web toolbars was also simplified.

In April 2008 EndNote Web 2.2 went live with expanded reference sharing for groups, links to the full-text documents for ISI Web of Knowledge records, plus other enhancements to streamline and improve the quality of online research. With this level of continuous software development, EndNote Web can only go from strength to strength.

EndNote Web is available free-of-charge to any academic institution with a subscription to an EndNote desktop site licence or ISI Web of Knowledge. It is also available as a stand-alone agreement.

EndNote plans to extend popular bibliography tool to the Web

Adept Scientific is pleased to announce that Thomson ResearchSoft is currently developing EndNote Web™: a Web-based bibliographic tool for managing and citing references easily. Annual EndNote Web subscriptions will support a wide variety of users – from students writing papers to faculty publishing in scholarly journals. The addition of EndNote Web will aim to provide award winning bibliographic solutions for all users across the organisation.

When released, EndNote Web will provide a full range of bibliographic management on the Web. Users will be able to import and edit references via a personal Web account and use these references to cite in papers and create bibliographies. EndNote Web will enable users to search ISI Web of Knowledge (SM), PubMed and hundreds of online library catalogues, then help them build their personal reference collections easily. EndNote Web will include unique integration for ISI Web of Knowledge subscribers with dynamic links to “Times Cited” and related records, giving users one-click access to the latest information on a reference article.

Each EndNote Web library will be able to store thousands of records and create bibliographies in over 1,300 publishing styles. The popular Cite While You Write™ technology will be available as an optional plug-in for anyone using Microsoft® Word® to create bibliographies instantly.

“Developing EndNote Web will help a new segment of users streamline citing references and formatting bibliographies and will also provide EndNote desktop users with an online storage option for times when they are away from their desks,” said David L. Kochalko, president, Thomson ResearchSoft. “The additional integration with ISI Web of Knowledge further defines our commitment to simplify access to the highest quality research information.”

EndNote Web will be available as a standalone subscription or in combination with EndNote and ISI Web of Knowledge. The ISI Web of Knowledge will introduce a new personalisation option with direct access to EndNote Web and EndNote Web Express, a resource available at no charge to ISI Web of Knowledge subscribers. EndNote Web Express is ideal for formatting reading lists quickly and allows users to store selected references in persistent folders as well as import references from other sources including PubMed and the Library of Congress. EndNote Web Express provides a glimpse into the robust capabilities of EndNote Web.

EndNote Web will be supplied and supported in the UK and Ireland by Adept Scientific plc, Amor Way, Letchworth, Herts. SG6 1ZA; telephone +44 (0) 203 695 7810, fax +44 (0) 203 695 7819, e-mail info@alfasoft.com; or see Adept’s dedicated World Wide Web site http://www.adeptscience.co.uk/.
