New release supports global collaboration, open science and takes the guesswork out of journal submissions PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters today announced the availability of EndNote™ X8, the next iteration of the leading software for researchers, librarians and students to find, manage and create bibliographies, citations and references to research smarter.
Research collaboration has taken on a whole new meaning in the digital age. From 1998 through 2011, papers with 50 or more authors doubled in quantity from roughly 500 per year to more than 1,000. With research on the rise, the latest version of EndNote addresses this trend and enables researchers to work smarter to produce novel research no matter where their location. EndNote X8 now includes support to share an entire EndNote research library, including references, PDFs and annotations with up to 100 people. Collaborators can add to, annotate and cite from the shared library in real-time, with unlimited cloud storage at no additional cost. A built-in activity feed allows users to identify new members and to track the latest changes made to the library by their collaborators. "Our goal is addressing the needs of the market and in particular the end users," said George Kowal, head of researcher solutions at Clarivate Analytics. "X8 does exactly this in support of enabling their research to move forward more effectively with enhanced collaboration." With competition to get published at an all time high, delays due to mismanaged references are nonexistent when the right references are only a click away. EndNote keeps its users in step with the constantly evolving world of scholarly research and publishing by providing the ability to search, organize and share reference materials, as well as automatically format bibliographies, cutting down on the time spent collecting research and writing manuscripts, patent applications and grant proposals. In addition, with EndNote's manuscript matcher, users can reduce the risk of publication rejection by identifying journals where their research is most likely to be accepted based on an analysis of tens of millions of citation connections in Web of Science™, a collection of meticulously indexed data from thousands of journals, across hundreds of global publishers.
