Endnote, the bibliographic management software, is undergoing a quiet revolution.
There is a new iPad version that’s available at a reduced cost of 69p from iTunes during the month of July.
Launched this summer there is also a free version for anyone with internet access to use. Note – this is a cut down version of the Endnote that you can access for free via your university Web of Science account so we would advise you still use that account while a student or member of staff at the University of Glasgow but the new ‘free for anyone’ version gives you the option of continuing to use Endnote after you’ve graduated. The names of these services are confusing at the moment and even the company doesn’t seem to have settled on final naming conventions yet but, as I write this post on the 19th July 2013, the ‘free for anyone’ version is called ‘Endnote Basic’ and the version that you access via your Web of Science account is called ‘Endnote Web’.
All of this means that you can have access to a simplified version of Endnote that you can use both on an iPad and via a web browser from your desktop for just 69p. You can download references on the go and then sync from one device to another so you have the same information regardless of where you are.
I’d be interested to know what you think of this service and what help or support you’d like to see for it. Comment below or e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
