To determine the EndNote version you are running, go to Help -> About EndNote X9. A window will pop up indicating the version you are running.
To check for updates, go to Help --> Check for updates. The most current EndNote updates for both Macs (X9.3.2) and PCs (X9.3.3) came out earlier this year.
Why is it so important to update?
- Updates ensure security fixes are in place.
- If someone sends you a compressed library created in a newer version of EndNote than the one you use, the library will be empty when you open it.
- Lastly, updates contain important functionality improvements and fixes.
- For example, previous updates improved retrieval of full text from publishers, contained Cite While You Write fixes and improvements, and fixed credentialing for Mac users.
