Thomson Reuters Streamlines Research Process in EndNote X6
The Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters announced the release of a substantial upgrade to Thomson Reuters EndNote, the reference management solution. EndNote X6 provides the ability to search, organize, and share reference materials, as well as automatically format bibliographies.
EndNote X6 gives researchers the ability to enhance the efficiency of their authorship activities by providing sync capabilities between EndNote and EndNote Web. This allows users to access research from any computer and offers secure storage for reference and PDF libraries. The new functionality--in addition to EndNote's capabilities to automatically download full-text PDFs and update references--enables users to be more productive and manage their research libraries more effectively.
Update and Sync References
With this release, EndNote X6 users can update and synchronize references in EndNote desktop and EndNote Web with one click. Users will also have the ability to maintain and synchronize references in their EndNote library across multiple computers. This is a significant improvement to EndNote, as users increasingly access numerous platforms to gather data and information. The upgrade also includes increased storage in EndNote Web.
More Effective and Efficient Editing
Through EndNote X6, researchers can now edit footnote citations, move or copy the contents of one field to another with text formatting, and use more layout options, including an improved PDF Viewer for annotating files.
In addition to allowing for tagging solutions to indicate which references have or have not been reviewed, EndNote X6 allows users to set personal rating preferences. Users can then refine their library searches with these ratings.
The latest version of EndNote also enables users to set sophisticated customization preferences, more effectively manage medical journal names, and use the PubMed direct export feature to import records more quickly.
EndNoteX6 is currently available in Windows. The Mac version of EndNoteX6 is expected to release later this year.
