EndNote has always been the smart choice for advanced, yet easy bibliographies.Now, you may even call it brilliant with new intelligent features that make your life easier and give you more time to write about what matters most—your research.
Add and Transfer File Attachments to the Web
With EndNote X5 you can attach files to an EndNote Web record, or transfer file attachments between the Web and your computer. Once you register EndNote X5 with your EndNote Web account, you will also receive up to 1GB of Web storage for file attachments and increased storage for up to 25,000 references. Select the new paperclip on an EndNote Web record to view a list of attachments—it’s that easy!
View and Annotate PDF files
The Quick Edit tab expands in EndNote X5 to include a preview of attached PDF files.You can adjust the size of both windows to facilitate editing a record while viewing the PDF. And, you can annotate a PDF with highlights and/or comments. For records with multiple attachments, the viewer allows you to quickly navigate between PDF files without having to use menus or scroll to the File Attachment field.
Update a Reference Automatically
It’s easy to update existing records in EndNote X5. Simply select a record, choose the “Find Reference Updates” command, and EndNote searches online for updated reference data. If updates are found, EndNote highlights the differences in a side-by-side comparison of the new and existing reference. You can choose to update the empty fields only, replace all the fields, or copy and paste specific information. Don’t spend any more time searching for PMCID and NIHMSID numbers for existing references!
New Cite While You Write Options
You can save time with new conditional formatting that substitutes data for empty fields automatically. For example, the URL field can be inserted for records without a DOI. Look for the new “Field Substitution” option in the Output Style Editor. A new citation style—Author (Year)—is now available in Microsoft Word along with over 5,000 new and updated output styles.
Other new features:
- Compare duplicate references quickly with auto-highlights and locked scrolling.
- Use two new reference types—Dataset and Music—and new fields in the Journal Article reference type—Article Number and NIHMSID.
- Maintain links to the original PDF file when importing PDFs to create new references.
