EndNote: Introduction

Introduction

EndNote - Reference Management Software

EndNote is reference management software that enables you to store and manage your references. It will then create bibliographies from these references automatically.

The Library offers regular training events on Managing your References using EndNote.  These events are very popular and early booking is recommended.

Endnote is compatible with a wide range of online databases, e.g. Web of Science and JSTOR as well as search engines like Google Scholar that provide access to the literature required for your research. Citations from resources can be automatically transferred into EndNote and do not need to be typed in manually.

Depending on the resource, there are three different ways that references are imported into EndNote:

  1. In some resources there is an option to automatically export from the resource directly into EndNote.
  2. Some electronic resources can be searched from within EndNote - through the EndNote interface - using connection files.
  3. Other resources allow results to be exported as a text file, this text file can then be imported into EndNote using filters.
