Whether you're new to EndNote or a long-time fan, improve your EndNote experience with these five advanced features.

1. Customize how EndNote looks

Some of our favorite Preferences include:

  • Within "Display Fonts," make that font size bigger!
  • Within "PDF Handling," have EndNote rename PDF files as Author + Year + Title.
  • Within "Display Fields," hide the fields you don't use (e.g. read/unread status) and display those you do (e.g. Research Notes). Also, uncheck the box to "Display all authors in the Author field."
  • Experiment with the library layout on a PC or on a...

Online Payment of ILL Invoices is Here!
Posted On: Monday, October 31, 2016 - 15:03 by Beverly Murphy

As of November 1, 2016, you can pay your invoice for Interlibrary Loans (ILLs) online at https://payments.mclibrary.duke.edu/ill using a credit card.

Making Information Free: Open Access & More
Posted On: Friday, October 7, 2016 - 13:56 by Patricia Thibodeau

Easy and immediate access to journal articles still remains a challenge. Even Duke cannot provide access to everything.  Journal prices have continued to increase year after year with more and more expensive journals being published. That means important clinical, research, and educational content can be locked up for months, years, or permanently, inaccessible to the patients, health providers, researchers, teachers and learners that need access to them.  This problem becomes even more massive when you look at access to information within developing countries, and can become an obstacle as Duke tries to work with global sites to reduce disparities in health, education, and research.

The following three movements are trying to ensure...

Who's Responsible for Public Access Policy Compliance?
Posted On: Monday, September 19, 2016 - 10:11 by Patricia Thibodeau

The bottom line is that the PI is responsible even if not an author on the article.  Any author or PI can submit the manuscript file(s) and approve the submission, but unless the submission and final version are approved, the publication becomes non-compliant within 30 days of publication.  That can be a problem when renewing or seeking funding.

AUTHORS!  You can help the PIs by letting them know when a manuscript attributed to their grant has been submitted for publication.

How do I track publications?

Copyright - Be in the Know!
Posted On: Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 13:31 by Erica Brody

Why should you care about copyright?

As a future author, you may want to protect your work so that you're recognized for materials you have created and do not lose control of them. For some things you may not care, but as your career grows you will want recognition for the book, video, or journal article that you've created. Think about how you would feel if someone or some corporation took your work, mass distributed it, and you got no credit, or in some cases, no royalties for what you wrote or produced?
