Manage Your Literature with EndNote
EndNote is a bibliographic citation manager.
What is a bibliographic citation?
A bibliographic citation is any reference to a book, journal article, video or other source that you might use in an academic paper or article. EndNote allows you to manage those citations by saving, organising, and formatting them into a bibliography or reference list in your thesis, publication or assessment. Visit the Endnote Guide for more information.
What will it do for me?
Import sets of references found in database searches.
Provide a place to keep unlimited number of article references' associated pdfs, charts, illustrations etc along with its abstract and research notes.
Insert references into your thesis or publication and automatically format them in the style you have chosen.
What won't it do?
It won't teach you how to reference correctly; you need to know how to do that before using any citation manager.
It won't make a correct reference if you enter incorrect data, or enter it in the wrong place.
Should I use it?
If you are doing research and handling lots of references, you should be using Endnote!
Endnote is a computer program and it takes time to learn and gain proficiency, so you should get some training from your librarian before using it.
It is most likely to be useful to researchers writing a thesis or preparing a publication with a substantial number of references.
Undergraduate students who want to use a citation manager should consider using EndnoteOnline as it is web based and you can teach yourself to use it. Students may use Endnote on campus PCs if they wish.
