Love EndNote and Interested in New Features? EndNote X7 for Windows Now Available

EndNote is a bibliographic management program that allows you to to
automatically format in-text citations and your paper’s bibliography
with your chosen style (APHA, Chicago, JAMA, etc.). It
also stores and organizes your citations.

EndNote has just released its latest version, X7 for Windows. This update
has several new features that make working with PDFs easier. One new
feature will allow you to set a folder on your computer to be monitored
by EndNote for new PDFs. When you open EndNote, all new PDFs in this
folder will automatically be added to your EndNote library.

EndNote X7 will allow you to create a bibliography in Microsoft Word with
separate sections. You can create subsections divided by the type of
reference, or create the customized subsections that will best illuminate
your work.

X7, unlike previous versions, is compatible with Office 2013 and Windows 8.

Not sure if you need to upgrade? EndNote has a comparison chart of its last four versions available to help.

You can also download a free 30-day free trial of X7 so that you can test it out for yourself.

X7 for Mac is scheduled to be available in July.
