|ISI ResearchSoft has announced the release of a major new upgrade to
EndNote, its bibliographic software that searches Internet libraries, organizes
data, and produces bibliographies. According to the announcement, EndNote
5 achieves a new level of integration with Microsoft Word, adding Cite
While You Write technology to locate citations and instantly format bibliographies.
EndNote 5 also features a traveling reference library to allow collaboration
between colleagues, a direct link to the ISI Web of Science, a spell-checker,
and over 700 output styles.
"EndNote 5 is truly groundbreaking. For the first time, users can watch
the bibliography appear before their eyes as they write," said David Kochalko,
president of ISI ResearchSoft. "In addition, the new traveling library
frees researchers from having to exchange EndNote databases along with
their manuscripts. Whether colleagues are down the hall or around the globe,
EndNote 5 is the perfect collaborative writing tool."
The Cite While You Write feature lets EndNote locate and insert citations
as well as produce bibliographies. According to the announcement, EndNote
5's new instant formatting delivers a finished bibliography as users cite
references in the document, further streamlining the writing process. With
EndNote's traveling library, documents contain complete reference data
for all citations. Wherever the document goes, the references travel with
it—ready for colleagues to add, delete, and reformat citations.
ISI Web of Science users can now—at no charge—utilize a simple two-way
connection between the ISI Web of Science and EndNote 5. Researchers can
search the ISI Web of Science from EndNote 5 and drag and drop selected
references to an EndNote library. EndNote 5 also maintains a link to the
original reference in the ISI Web of Science. Users can even access the
full text of references and link to other scholarly databases through ISI
In addition, EndNote 5 automates spelling and typing corrections with
a new spell-checker that lets users check highlighted text or an entire
reference for spelling errors. The spell-checker includes multilanguage
