Thomson Reuters Releases EndNote X3 for Windows
The Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters has released a major upgrade to EndNote for Windows, the bibliographic management software used by millions of researchers, librarians, and students worldwide. The company says it includes many new and unique features not available in other bibliographic management programs. EndNote X3, including EndNote Web, is designed to make 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 (www.endnote.com/02-Whats_New_ENX3.wmv).
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-popular with chemistry journals-that group citations by number and letter.
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.
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 they are away from their desks, transfer references between the desktop and the web, and collaborate with colleagues by sharing EndNote groups. EndNote users can also use EndNote Web to organize personal publication lists for ResearcherID (www.researcherid.com), a free online author community, and to view personal citation metrics in ResearcherID, complete with dynamic links to Times Cited detail from ISI Web of Science (www.isiwebofknowledge.com), the Thomson Reuters premiere online platform for citation data.
Other features of the upgrade include the following:
- Users can compare duplicate records side by side for easy review.
- Start EndNote faster: EndNote X3 loads the 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.
- Users can connect and publish with 3,900-plus connection files, 700-plus import files, and 3,700-plus journal styles.
EndNote X3 is designed for Windows XP and Vista. The list price of EndNote X3 is $299.95. Students in North America can purchase EndNote X3 for $115.95 with a valid student ID. For a list of international distributors, go to www.endnote.com. Special upgrade prices are available to owners of previous versions. EndNote X3 is now available from Thomson Reuters, college and university bookstores, and authorized resellers worldwide. EndNote X3 for Mac OS X will ship in summer 2009.
