FAQ V30

There are several things that you should consider.

More recent versions of EndNote include added features that you may find useful for your work (for example the ability to share your library with colleagues).

If you are already planning to upgrade MS Word you may have to upgrade to EndNote at the same time because earlier versions may not be compatible with the latest version of Word. You also need to be aware that routine free updates to Word may 'break' compatibility with older versions of EndNote so it is advisable to ensure that you do at least have a version of EndNote that is still itself receiving free updates.

If your existing computer and the version of MS Word that you use are both several years old and you do not wish to replace/upgrade either in the near future, you should consult the compatibility tables on EndNote's support site.

If you are very close to finishing/submitting an existing project it may be advisable to wait until this is completed before installing an upgrade in case of any technical problems.

When upgrading, you should uninstall the existing copy of the program, using the uninstall command from the EndNote customiser menu (Mac) or add/remove programs (Windows), rather than simply deleting it, to avoid conflicts when you install your newly purchased version.
