Thomson Reuters Offers New EndNote Basic—Aimed at Mendeley Users
The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters announced an enhanced version of its EndNote Basic online offering, with more features and functionality for users looking for a free alternative reference management tool.
“Public response to Elsevier’s acquisition of Mendeley has been mixed,” said Amanda Addis, vice president and general manager of the EndNote solution from Thomson Reuters. “Thomson Reuters has always had a free EndNote product, and we’ve now made it even more appealing in light of current market conditions. We want researchers to know they have a ‘free’ choice from Thomson Reuters with our new EndNote Basic.”
EndNote Basic includes storage for 2GB of attachments and 50,000 references, as well as the top 20-plus most frequently used styles. In addition, there are intangible benefits including “the fact that we are publisher and publishing-model neutral. Our mission is to support the advancement of science and the research community with tools needed to accomplish individual, institutional, and societal goals,” said Addis.
EndNote is a premier research resource with flexible tools for searching, organizing, and sharing work, creating bibliographies, and writing papers. It is used by more than 3 million people around the world, comprising 100,000 enterprises and customer accounts. The EndNote iPad version will soon be updated to reflect the new EndNote Basic functionality. EndNote’s iPad version is available on iTunes for $.99 (discounted from $9.99) through the end of July 2013.
Thomson Reuters has made it easy for users to migrate Mendeley files to EndNote in a few simple steps. More information is at endnote.com/basic.
