Like the shepherd boy and his king of the Grimms' fairy tale, the previous versions of EndNote managed admirably the unruly flock of bibliographic citations. Yet, there were three unanswered royal challenges: connection, search, and downloading were not in the purview of reference managers. The newest version of EndNote has met these three challenges.
We have grown to rely on reference managers like EndNote and several others for handling bibliographies to suit the idiosyncratic requirements of specific journals. Now, several bibliographic managers take the pain out of insertion, citation, and reference list maintenance. The producers of EndNote, not resting on their laurels, have made use of a recently available technology for accessing data as well.
