ISI ResearchSoft Ships EndNote Version 5

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 Links.

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 and discipline-specific dictionaries for greater accuracy. The addition of new output styles to format bibliographies brings the total to over 700.
