Calling all EndNote & Reference Manager users in Scotland

Scottish users of EndNote and Reference Manager will be given the opportunity to brush up their skills during May at venues much closer to home. Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) is taking their renowned software training to Scotland.

These one-day training courses will show users the fast-track route to finding their way around each package, so they can develop and manage their reference collection and generate citations and bibliographies quickly. The courses are an excellent way for software support or training providers to refresh and update their skills so they can pass their knowledge onto end-users.

The training events teach everything normally covered during the standard training courses held at Adept’s UK headquarters in Hertfordshire; so delegates get the same professional training just without the long-distance travel.

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!
