Thomson Reuters Streamlines Research Process with New Reference Management Functionality in EndNote X6
EndNote enhancement enables users to sync Web libraries, track references and import records at each stage of the research process
PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 6, 2012 – The Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced the release of a substantial upgrade to Thomson Reuters EndNote, the reference management solution used by millions of researchers and students worldwide. EndNote X6 keeps its users in step with the constantly evolving world of scholarly research and publishing by providing the ability to search, organize and share reference materials, as well as automatically format bibliographies, cutting down on the time spent collecting research and writing manuscripts, patent applications and grant proposals.
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.
“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. “The efficiency of research processes is critical to producing timely, relevant scholarly research around the world. End Note X6 is a reference management solution that allows users to customize the way they organize research information, providing greater accessibility for maximum efficiency.”
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.
