PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Reuters today released a major upgrade to Thomson Reuters EndNote® for Windows, the bibliographic management and publishing solution used by millions of researchers, librarians and students worldwide. EndNote X4 enables researchers to import and search PDF files, use new Cite While You Write™ features that simplify their writing, collaborate in new ways using EndNote Web and more.

"The release of EndNote X4 is a logical next step in our commitment to streamline researchers' workflow and simplify collaboration with others,"   said Keith MacGregor, executive vice president, Thomson Reuters. "Enabling users to create and search records from PDFs provides them with new ways to build their reference databases efficiently, while enhanced connectivity with the ResearcherID author community allows authors to share their research and collaborate globally."

Import and search records from PDFs

EndNote expands its PDF management from finding full text automatically and attaching PDFs to existing records to now importing a single PDF file or a folder of PDF files. EndNote X4 extracts basic bibliographic information using the Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) 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.

Other features include:

  • Microsoft® Word 2010 compatibility.
  • Link in-text citations to the bibliography automatically in Microsoft Word.
  • New customized short form formatting for footnotes and full APA 6th support.
  • Create new groups by comparing, combining and suppressing existing groups.
  • Modify references easily in the new Quick Edit tab on the main library window.
  • Transfer up to 10,000 references between the Web and desktop.
