EndNote X1

Adept Scientific has released a Mac OS X version of EndNote X1 from Thomson Scientific. The bibliographic management software is compatible with AppleScript, and can easily connect to EndNote Web to simplify collaboration with colleagues.

References can be dropped into subject folders for immediate access to reference subsets. Each EndNote Mac library can have up to 500 custom groups, and action-specific groups are automatically created for search results, file imports and reference transfers from EndNote Web.

Repetitive tasks can be automated, such as importing and exporting records to and from EndNote and formatting reference bibliographies. Shortcuts for these processes enable users to be more efficient while ensuring consistency and accuracy.

EndNote X1 also includes new and updated files for searching online resources, importing references and formatting bibliographies. It includes more than 1,500 connections to online sources, 600 import filters and over 2,800 publishing styles.
