Bibliographic Management: Thomson Reuters Launches Free Online Version of EndNote

It appears the bibliographic management wars are heating up. As you know, a couple of weeks ago Elsevier acquired Mendeley.

Today, news from Thomson Reuters about a New EndNote Tool:

EndNote Basic includes storage for two gigabytes of attachments and 50,000 references, as well as the top 20+ most frequently used styles. In addition, there are intangible benefits including “the fact that we are publisher and publishing-model neutral. Our mission is to support the advancement of science and the research community with tools needed to accomplish individual, institutional and societal goals,” said Ms. Addis. “EndNote has been the leading reference management tool for 25 years; our customers trust our commitment to the privacy and confidentiality of their data.”

The EndNote iPad App will soon be updated to reflect the new EndNote Basic functionality. The App is available on iTunes for $.99 (discounted from $9.99) through the end of July 2013.
