EndNote Introduction for Biological / Agricultural / Environmental Sciences Researchers
EndNote is a bibliographic management program which simplifies the process of generating bibliographies and reference lists. EndNote allows one to easily store, manage, and format references to any biological/agricultural/environmental science core style guide such as CSE, NLM, ACS, or APA or to any specific biological/agricultural/environmental journal style such as FASEB J, J Exp Biol, Plant Cell, J Agr Food Chem, or Front Ecol Environ. EndNote also helps you organize and easily retrieve publication PDFs.
This introductory class will cover: creating EndNote libraries; direct export of citations from biological/agricultural article databases; importing PDFs into EndNote; adding citations to your libraries; output styles; and Cite While You Write (using EndNote with Microsoft Word).

The NIH Public Access Policy: What it Means for You and How to Ensure Compliance
In 2008, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that investigators funded by the NIH must submit a copy of their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts to PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication, to be made publicly available no later than 12 months after the date of publication. Failure to comply with the Public Access Policy will result in funding delays.
If you are involved with NIH-funded research in any capacity, consider attending this workshop to learn more about the NIH PAP and tools for meeting requirements.
