Aug. 4, 2011 – EndNote version X5 for Windows is now available for downloading from the university's Network Software site. (The Mac version typically is released a few months after the Windows version.) We recommend undergraduates use Zotero instead.
New features include
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!
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.
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!
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:
The university has a site license for the EndNote product and makes it available to all Virginia Tech faculty, staff, and students.
Only on campus users, which includes those connecting to the Internet via VPN, can download EndNote directly from the Software Distribution Office site. Once downloaded and installed, check periodically to see if there have been updates.
