Thanks to mobile devices like smart phones and tablets, most people can access online news, information and content around the clock. Consequently, research is no longer restricted to the desktop or library. Every news feed, web search and web article represents an opportunity to expand knowledge and support theories. A key new feature in recently-released EndNote X6 reflects this trend and aims to make research and reference collections accessible anytime, anywhere. Version X6′s new Sync feature enables users to automatically align their main desktop library with their online EndNote Web account so all references and attachments can be accessed from both packages!
This is likely to be just the first step in mobilising reference management tools to match the increasing importance of mobile devices in research. We’ve already blogged about Thomson Reuters’ plans to release an EndNote iPad app in the Autumn, which will enable users to add, edit, group, copy and email citations, as well as sync them with their EndNote Web account.
