Adept Scientific has released Thomson Reuters’ upgraded Endnote, a bibliographic management and publishing solution used by researchers, librarians and students.

Endnote X4 enables researchers to import and search PDF files, use new Cite While You Write features that simplify their writing and collaborate in new ways using Endnote Web.

‘Enabling users to create and search records from PDFs provides them with new ways to build their reference libraries efficiently, while enhanced connectivity with the ResearcherID author community allows authors to share their research and collaborate globally,’ said Keith MacGregor, vice-president of scientific and scholarly research at Thomson Reuters.

Endnote expands PDF management from finding full text automatically and attaching PDFs to existing records with drag and drop to now importing a single PDF file or a folder of PDF files, where possible.

Endnote X4 extracts basic bibliographic information using the digital object identifiers (DOIs) and Crossref data to create new records in a reference library.

Users can also extend their retrieval results beyond reference data by searching attached PDF files.

Endnote X4 is compatible with Microsoft Word 2010 and includes 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 customisable short forms as well as full support of the APA 6th style, including a multiple author ellipse.

The new combined Edit and Manage Citations feature consolidates the most frequently used functions in one Cite While You Write window.

Users can view a report of references cited in a Word document with a new auto-group in the Endnote library.

Every Endnote user receives 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 search shared groups when selecting references to cite.

Reference lists can be sorted by times cited, the date added to the library or the date modified to locate references quickly.

Endnote Web makes it simple to manage a personal publication list for the free ResearcherID author community, according to Adept.

References stored in the Endnote Web group are visible instantly in the public community, enabling users to eliminate author misidentification and to review personal citation metrics from the Web of Knowledge.

Users can create new groups by comparing, combining and suppressing existing groups; modify references in the new Quick Edit tab on the main library window; edit references when comparing duplicates; expand library retrieval results by adding wildcards within search terms; and Cite While You Write in more than 4,500 journal styles.

Endnote X4 for Windows is available from Adept Scientific, a Thomson Reuters partner and support centre in the UK and Ireland, Germany, Austria and Denmark.
