There are several ways of collaborating with others using Endnote:
Use the table below to determine which method suits your needs.
|You created a library and would like to access it from multiple computers (e.g. a home computer and a work computer)
|You would like to share a library or group with others, either for viewing only, or with editing privileges
|You are collaborating on a manuscript, and more than one collaborator needs to add references to the manuscript with Endnote's Word plugin.
Note: If you share a group or group set, those you have shared with will not have access to PDFs and other file attachments. To share PDFs, you need to share an entire library via the method above.
A Traveling Library refers to the citations in your Word document that were entered using EndNote. As each formatted citation in your Word document is saved with field codes that embed reference data in the document, you can share your Word document without having to send the whole EndNote library, and you can also collaborate with other authors on a paper without each author having the same EndNote library.
When you receive an Microsoft Word document that has been created with EndNote citations you can export the “traveling library” from Word into a new or existing EndNote library on your own computer by following these steps:
|You are the owner of the first library that was used to edit the document
|If you are a collaborator and are exporting the traveling library from this document for the first time
|If you are a collaborator and have previously exported a traveling library for the document in question
