Berkeley, CA and Ottawa, ON - March 16, 2001 - e-academy Inc. and ISI ResearchSoft today announced that EndNote 4.0, the leading bibliographic management software product, is now available as part of e-academy's unique digital distribution system. This system enables students and faculty across the U.S. and Canada to rent this popular software application for 6 months or a year rather than paying the full retail price for a perpetual license.
More than 300,000 users rely on EndNote as an essential research tool. A full version of the software application normally retails for $329.95 USD. Through the new e-academy rental program, www.e-academy.com/endnote, students will be able to use the full version for six months at $29.95, or for one year at $49.95. The program covers all higher education institutions across North America.
Said e-academy CEO Ram Raju, "Bibliography software is fundamental to scholastics, and this partnership between ISI ResearchSoft, the premier publisher of bibliography software, and e-academy Inc. ensures that the entire higher education community can have easy and affordable access. The rental options offered by e-academy allow faculty, graduate and undergraduate students to remain current and have simple, direct access to this important academic tool. Clearly our software publisher and university partners see the value of the e-academy digital content management infrastructure."
Students who wish to purchase the software can download it directly from the e-academy Web site. e-academy's secure encryption process protects against piracy while allowing students 24-hour access to the software they need. Once installed, all features of the software will be available throughout the rental period. An EndNote PDF manual is included with each purchase.
EndNote's presence in the e-academy software catalogue places it in a roster of other brand-name titles, including rental products from SPSS and Minitab, and standard licenses from Macromedia and Symantec. "We are pleased to introduce new rental options to students who want EndNote's help formatting papers and bibliographies," said David Kochalko, ISI ResearchSoft president. "Renting EndNote via www.e-academy.com/endnote is a great solution for the student with a short deadline or a limited budget."
