What is EndNote?

EndNote is a reference manager. EndNote helps to manage your references, add in-text citations & references, create a bibliography or a list of references for writing your paper, thesis or final year projects.

You can create a personalised database by exporting or importing references from online bibliographic databases, organize and manage your references. You can cite these references while writing your papers and instantly generate and format your bibliography in your choice of citation styles.

EndNote integrates the following tasks into one program:

  • Manually input citations
  • Search and download references/citations from bibliographic databases
  • Manage references/citations and images while you search, using EndNote
  • Cite while you write in Microsoft Word
  • Format your bibliographic style (i.e. APA, MLA, etc.) instantly

EndNote is a reference management software package. This tool is used to manage bibliographies and references typically for academic writing and publishing.

EndNote has both Desktop and Web(online) versions. EndNote-Web has some useful features such as synchronising & sharing references. The combination of EndNote-Desktop and EndNote-Web provides a suite of useful features. EndNote-desktop would be the first choice while initating the use of reference manager.
