Software streamlines research and reference management

A SUBSTANTIAL upgrade to EndNote, the reference management software from Thomson Reuters  used by researchers and students worldwide, has been announced. Available in the UK and Ireland, Germany, Austria and Denmark from Adept Scientific, EndNote X6 keeps its users up to date with scholarly research and publishing by searching, organising, and sharing reference materials. The software also automatically formats bibliographies, cutting the time spent collecting research and writing manuscripts, patent applications, and grant proposals.

EndNote X6 gives enhances the efficiency of 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 references and PDF libraries. This new function, in addition to the ability to automatically download full text PDFs and update references, enables users to be more productive and manage their research libraries more effectively.

“The research and publishing process has become increasingly sophisticated. Researchers and other scholarly professionals now work from several digital platforms, manage ever-increasing amounts of information from thousands of sources and maintain overwhelming databases of knowledge. The EndNote X6 update provides key functionalities to serve the evolving needs of the community,” said Chris Burghardt, vice president at Thomson Reuters.

EndNote X6 users can update and synchronise references in EndNote desktop and EndNote Web with one click. Users also have the ability to maintain and synchronise references in their EndNote library across multiple computers.

Researchers can now edit footnote citations, move or copy the contents of one field to another with text formatting, and use more layout options.

EndNote X6 also allows users to set personal rating preferences, and then refine their library searches with these ratings. It is currently available for Windows, with a Mac version expected later in 2012.
