  • New Tools for Author Promotion and Collaboration using ResearcherID
  • Invite colleagues to ResearcherID byof Google, Yahoo, and Hotmail contacts.
  • The ResearcherID homepage and added Map feature makes locating collaborators easier.
  • Faster location and retrieval of citation metrics.
  • Direct link to citation metrics data on a researcher's profile.
  • A new records view option saves time for robust searches.
  • Users can choose the number of records to view per page.
  • Use Cite While You Write™ with references found in shared EndNote Web groups.
  • Save time transferring up to 5,000 references between EndNote Web and EndNote desktop.
