What's New in EndNote X9

New features in EndNote X9

EndNote X9 has gotten new and improved features for sharing your research and references with your colleagues, updated styles and new reference types, and a new integration with Web of Science for citation reports and manuscript matching.

New collaboration and sharing features in EndNote X9

Group sharing

Group sharing now gives you the ability to share your groups with colleagues right from your EndNote desktop with both read-only or read-and-write access. Let your colleagues get right to what they need; they don’t need to sift through your entire library to find what is pertinent to them.

Sharing Permissions

Now you got the ability to choose whether you share a library with full Read-write permissions or the new Read-only mode. You can select the access rights at the time of sharing, or adjust it later, and different access rights can be assigned to different users. Get the peace of mind about sharing your library and don’t have to worry about colleagues making changes to your library.

Refreshed styles and new reference types

Updated styles

If your bibliography isn’t formatted correctly, you risk your paper getting rejected, even before it is peer-reviewed. With EndNote X9 you get updates to key styles such as Chicago, AMA, MLA and APA. Now you can select from over 7000 styles to format your bibliography and citations.

New reference types

When adding a new reference, you can now select from new references types from the list of reference options. These new reference types include discussion forum, TV episode, social media, and multimedia applications. No more guessing or making up your own reference types. Cite new types of media with confidence.

Web of science integration

Citation reports

Citation reports from Web of Science help you identify what impact your research is having on your area of study. As a researcher, you want to know if the references you are citing are impactful and relevant. To do this with X8 you needed to leave EndNote and go into Web of Science separately, which is time-consuming and breaks your workflow. With EndNote X9 you can generate a Web of Science citation report by selecting a group from your desktop. Leverage core Web of Science metrics by accessing Citation reports directly from the EndNote X9.

Manuscript matcher

As a researcher, you need to know what journals are the best fit for your manuscripts, so that you have the best chance of acceptance. Many fields have hundreds of journal options, and it is hard to determine where to submit your paper. With EndNote X9 you can now create a list of journal suggestions for the paper you are writing. Take the guesswork out of journal submission and find the best-fit journals for your paper.

  • Windows Server 2012 & 2012 R2

EndNote Cross-Platform Compatibility

What you need:

EndNote X7 and X8 are cross-platform compatible. Following the EndNote end user license agreement, this means:

  • Individuals who purchase a single user license can install EndNote on up to three computers for their personal use.
  • Sharing a license with other users is not allowed under the individual license agreement.
  • Those computers can be any combination of Mac and Windows machines.
  • By creating or logging into a Endnote online account (under preferences > Sync), that individual can sync their library across all three computers, as well as access it through EndNote online and the iPad app.

NOTE: Your EndNote product key is required for activation. Your key is the 25-character code located either in your email confirmation (if you purchased the download) or in the inside-left panel of the CD case (if you had the product shipped).

Integration

Integration with other research solutions that extend your reach

With EndNote, you’re better connected with extra research solutions that help you showcase your work, uncover relevant sources more quickly and get your research ready for publication. We’d love to build more bridges – ask about our API.


EndNote + ResearcherID

Showcase your publication lists

Create an online profile to associate you with your scholarly work, assuring an accurate record of output and attribution. This forms a gateway for colleagues to quickly locate your published work and to identify you as a potential collaborator.

Take it a step further and link your ResearcherID profile with your EndNote community profile. Now you can share information and ideas within EndNote online.

 


EndNote + Web of Science

Get to the most relevant research, faster

By design, you can navigate easily between EndNote and Web of Science while collecting research. When you sync your EndNote library, your Web of Science references will automatically display their Times Cited Count and a link to Related Records (Web of Science subscription required).

Related Records uses the citation linking magic in Web of Science to find references that share citations with yours, spotting the truly relevant research much faster than a typical topic or author search.

 


EndNote + ScholarOne

Submit manuscripts more simply and accurately

Used by some of the most prestigious commercial publishers, societies, associations, and university presses in the world, ScholarOne Manuscripts helps publishers and authors simplify the manuscript submission process. A manuscript written with EndNote templates and Cite While You Write is optimized for submission through ScholarOne.

 


EndNote + Westlaw UK

Search it, see it, cite it

Save journal citations from Westlaw UK directly to EndNote. Then simply open the EndNote application in Microsoft® Word to insert your Westlaw UK citations


EndNote Export

Export references from hundreds of online databases

We work with hundreds of online databases so that you can send references directly into your EndNote library with a simple click

 


 

EndNote API for software developers

Developers: Add custom functionality and connectivity to EndNote

  • Build plug-ins that add new functionality.
  • Script or batch existing capabilities and features.
  • Create tools that extend the GUI.
  • Provide better integration with third-party tools and products.
  • Directly access records and data in EndNote Libraries (databases).
  • Directly import or export into or out of EndNote.
  • Leverage the power of the EndNote formatting engine (formatter).

Request a software development kit

The Software Development Kit is intended for technical developers who know object-oriented programming languages, particularly C and C++.

Users should also be familiar with the tools needed to produce compiled application code or DLLs. The API is available for both the Macintosh and Windows operating systems and behaves identically on each, unless otherwise specified. Individual customers and third-party partners are encouraged to use the EndNote API to develop tools that closely interact with EndNote.

Any party developing a component or tool that uses the EndNote API for commercial or wide-spread use must also sign a license agreement with Thomson Reuters to legally employ the API, Software Development Kit and any associated tools, documentation, or code.
