Thomson Reuters Releases EndNote X4 for Windows
Thomson Reuters has released an upgrade to its EndNote for Windows, a bibliographic management and publishing solution. EndNote X4 enables researchers to import and search PDFs, use new Cite While You Write features that simplify their writing, and collaborate in new ways using EndNote Web.
EndNote expands its PDF management from finding full text automatically and attaching PDFs to existing records with drag and drop to now importing a single PDF or a folder of PDFs. EndNote X4 extracts basic bibliographic information using the digital object identifiers (DOI) and CrossRef data to create new records in a reference library. Users can also extend their retrieval results beyond reference data by searching attached PDFs.
EndNote X4 is compatible with Microsoft Word 2010 and introduces new formatting options for citing scholarly papers properly. EndNote links in-text citations to the bibliography automatically in Microsoft Word-with or without hyperlinks. Users also have increased options for formatting footnotes with customizable short forms as well as full support of the APA 6th style including a multiple author ellipse. The new combined Edit and Manage Citations command consolidates the most frequently used functions in one Cite While You Write window. And users can view a report of references cited in a Word document with a new auto-group in the EndNote library.
All EndNote users receive their own EndNote Web account for collaborating with others and accessing references when away from the desktop. Users can now transfer up to 10,000 references between the web and desktop and can search shared groups when selecting references to cite. Reference lists can be sorted by Times Cited, date added to the library, or date modified to locate references quickly. EndNote Web makes it easy to manage a personal publication list for the free ResearcherID (http://www.researcherid.com) author community. References stored in the EndNote Web group are visible instantly in the public community that enables users to eliminate author misidentification and to review personal citation metrics from the Web of Knowledge.
EndNote X4 is designed for Windows XP, Vista, and 7. The list price of EndNote X4 is $299.95. Students in North America can purchase EndNote X4 for $115.95 (U.S.) 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 X4 is now available from Thomson Reuters, college and university bookstores, and authorized resellers worldwide. EndNote X4 for Mac OS X will ship in summer 2010.
