BJCVS/RBCCV and Endnote

DOI: 10.5935/1678-9741.20150013

Dear Editor,

Certainly, it is a difficult task to elaborate, develop and write a scientific paper to publish. Therefore, we can surely say that this following approach can be useful to everyone who wants to publish and share the agreement of others who have just published papers; studies such as Master and Doctorate thesis. All has experienced some constraint drawn on data format as well as updating references mainly extensive ones. In view of this, we developed the formatting styles in the EndNote program ( for both the Brazilian Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery (BJCVS/RBCCV) and the Postgraduate course of Faculdade de Medicina de São José do Rio Preto (São José do Rio Preto Medical School). Through these styles, the sequence of the entire list of references can be automatically formatted and updated. This mechanism would ease only to the researchers who has acquired the EndNote program (which is paid). It would be very comfortable if this mechanism could be available to every cardiovascular surgeon for free. After being in touch with Thomson Reuters, EndNote right owner, we had a favorable understanding toward these formatting styles. Also Shriram Venkatesh, product support analyst, and Cheryl Rodriguez, technical support, both kindly sent us several suggestions improving significantly the final product. These two programs were included in the Endnote website and they are now available for use after 14 months of waiting.

Today, we are very happy to announce to colleagues the inclusion of both bibliographic styles: the BJCVS / RBCCV and the Postgraduate course of São José do Rio Preto medical school in the EndNote site ( and EndNote Web ( Now one can use the online program free for charge anywhere in the globe. The tutorial addressing how to use EndNote Web will be further found in another information article. Below, we attached the last Thomson Reuters´s email:
