UU does not renew Endnote license

NB On July 1, 2010 the UU license for Endnote will end. From then, Endnote will not be available anymore on computers managed by UU. Also, Endnote software bought through Surfspot cannot be used anymore form that date.
Please be advised to switch to RefWorks now. Endnote library files can easily be imported into RefWorks. However, citations and bibliographies in (Word-) documents formatted with Endnote will not be recognised by RefWorks. You are advised to format your citations in new papers etc. with RefWorks.

Write-n-Cite & Windows 7

We got a message from RefWorks stating that WNC III has been tested for issues with Windows 7. No issues were found, so anyone can use Write-n-Cite III with Windows 7.

UBU catalogue: use English interface for correct export

Contrary to earlier messages from us, it is still necessary to use the English language interface of the Utrecht University Library catalogue to avoid export issues. Using the Dutch interface may result in data ending up in the wrong fields (e.g. publication year in the notes field). When in doubt, always check with the import suggestions list on the RefWorks support pages on the library website. These should always be up to date.

Omega direct export issue solved

The problem with the direct export of records from Omega into RefWorks has been solved. All should be working fine now.

Omega direct export

Direct export from Omega is currently out of order. The library is busy repairing it. We will post again as soon as the problem is solved.

In the meantime is is possible to export records from Omega by sending records to your email, using the Endnote format. You can then import these records by simply copying all the text in the email and use the 'references|import' option in RefWorks with 'Utrecht University' as import filter and 'Endnote Library' as database.

Google Scholar problem resolved

Google has fixed the problem of the 'import into RefWorks" link not showing up. Importing should now work properly, though still one a time :-(

BTW Zotero does offer a way to import more references from GS in one go. Firefox only.

Problems with Google Scholar

As of today Google Scholar does not show the 'import into RefWorks' link anymore with its search results. You can still select it in the Google Scholar preferences under bibliographic software, but the link does not show up in the Google Scholar search results. We have taken action to get Google to repair this and will report further developments here. Other links (for Endote, Bibtex etc.) are still availabe.

Importing from Picarta: Dutch and English versions identical

It is no longer necessary to swith to the English version when importing from the Picarta database. The Dutch version works the same now. Information on the support pages has been updated.

January 19, 2009

Tenfold increase of upload space

Again, upload space for all UU Refworks users has been increased, this time from 100 MB to 1 GB. Thus, you can easily store your PDF's and other documents together with your references in your RefWorks account. One gigybyte of storage space holds some 700 article PDF's of average length.

January 15, 2009

UU switches to RefWorks

In 2009 the UU will officially license RefWorks. It is expected that ICT-UU will install Write-n-Cite III on all university campus computers they manage. People using Endnote can continue using the version they have installed, but new versions will not be available under campus license anymore from May 2009. If you wish to continue using Endote you are advised to update to the latest version while the programme is still availabe under campus license.

Filters corrected and Output Styles added in december 2008

- For the Picarta filter the issue of non-importing publications years was corrected.
