Thomson Reuters Releases EndNote X5 for Windows

  • Research and publishing solution enables file attachments on the Web, automatic reference updates and PDF annotations

Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, June 20, 2011 – Thomson Reuters today released a major upgrade to Thomson Reuters EndNote(R) for Windows, the bibliographic management and publishing solution used by millions of researchers, librarians and students worldwide. With EndNote X5 researchers can add and move file attachments between their computer and Web account, view and annotate PDFs, and update references automatically.

“EndNote X5 offers several new and improved product features to help users save valuable time managing their reference collections,” said Keith MacGregor, executive vice president, Thomson Reuters.“We are continually looking to improve the scholarly research and publishing experience for our customers, and the latest update adds key functionalities like the ability to update existing references with critical data needed for grant submissions.”

=Add and Transfer File Attachments to the Web=

EndNote X5 users can access file attachments and figures within their EndNote Web records. File attachments can be added directly to an EndNote Web record or transferred between a local library and the Web to see the same reference detail in both environments. EndNote X5 users will also receive increased Web storage for up to 25,000 references and 1GB for their file attachments.

=View and Annotate PDF files within EndNote=

A new PDF viewer joins the “Quick Edit” tab in EndNote X5, enabling users to review an attached PDF and edit a record in one place. The PDF viewer makes it easy to navigate between multiple attachments as well as annotate the file with highlights and comments. Users can search the entire PDF including comments and use many familiar options common to PDF viewing.

=Update References Automatically=

Existing references can now be updated easily with a new option that lets EndNote search online for more complete reference detail. When a match is found, EndNote highlights the differences in a side-by-side comparison of the new and existing reference. Users can decide whether to update the empty fields only, replace all the fields, or copy-and-paste specific information. While any field can be updated, the new feature saves time for existing references that now require article identifiers such as PMCID and NIHMSID numbers for grant submissions.

The latest version of EndNote also enables users to:

  • Use new conditional formatting in journal styles that substitutes data for empty fields automatically.
  • Review differences in duplicate records quickly with auto-highlights.
  • Select a new citation style—Author (Year)—in Microsoft(R) Word.
  • Use a new reference type—Music—and new fields in the Journal Article reference type—Article Number and NIHMSID.
  • Cite While You Write in over 5,000 journal styles.

Dear Sirs, Dear Team,

TRENSOFTY is purchaser of the full version EN X5 and beta tester for T.R. . T.R.

EN X5 shows NO EXTENSION for Palm or PocketPC. WHY? Can you insert the Palm extension again? The pocketPC extension was formely “shoddy” programmed.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Feedback wished. (TR. and users community)
