EndNote was designed to help corporate and academic researchers better manage references. I just gave EndNote X7 from Thomson Reuters a thorough test drive in an assessment for FreePint and found myself thinking several times, while reviewing such features as the PDF de-duplication function, ‘they’ve thought of everything’.”
Although the majority of EndNote’s user base are in academia, significant proportions also come from government agencies, research institutions, pharmaceutical and corporate R&D, as well as a small percentage from the healthcare and clinical field. EndNote has 3 million users across all its offerings – which includes the free online reference manager as well as the more robust desktop solution.
When you are considering a reference manager, it is worthwhile understanding the difference between reference citation tools and reference management tools. There is a continuum of capabilities and being aware of that will help you evaluate and select the tool that best matches your needs. EndNote falls on the high end of the scale, as it is a mature product with many robust features.
To find out more you’ll need to log on to FreePint. The purpose of the review is help you gain an informed understanding of the tool and find out whether the price is worth the breadth of capabilities.
