EndNote 20 - await upgrade

EndNote 20 for Windows was recently released. This is a major update and there are three challenges associated with it:

  1. With the new Endnote 20, libraries created in Endnote 19.2 are no longer usable and must be converted to Endnote 20. After conversion, they are not backward compatible, so libraries can not be shared between users who have Endnote 19.2 and Endnote 20
  2. EndNote 20 for Mac has not arrived yet. This means that users who update, and thus convert their libraries, cannot share libraries with other Mac users or with their own Mac, should they have one.
  3. Endnote 20 has a completely new interface / look.

USIT makes Endnote 20 available in the Software Center so you can upgrade, but they strongly recommend that you think twice before upgrading. EndNote will not be automatically updated centrally until Endnote 20 is also available for Mac. Users who collaborate a lot, also outside UiO, should check whether partners use Mac or not and whether they intend to update their version now as well.
