It is designed to

  • Instantly generate bibliographies in different referencing styles
  • Sync with Word to insert in-text citations and full references directly into assignments
  • Support collaboration by making it easy to share references

What's New in EndNote X9?

1. EndNote X9 gives you greater ease and control in coordinating with your colleagues. After you synced your desktop and online libraries:

  • you can share your complete library with either read-write or read-only access rights;
  • you can share custom groups in your library with other EndNote online users from your desktop library;
  • you can view a list of the groups shared with you through EndNote online from your desktop library and use them as shortcuts to EndNote online.

2. EndNote X9 provides new references types - citing social and other electronic media will be easier with your new reference types.

3. EndNote X9 has increased integration with Web of Science:

  • you can access Web of Science source or related records, or create a citation report, from your EndNote library.
  • you can create a Web of Science citation report for a group of references from your EndNote library.

4. You can use manuscript matcher to find journals that might be interested in publishing your work from your EndNote library or from a Word document.
