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, organizing, and formatting them into a bibliography or reference list in your thesis, publication or assignment.
What will it do for me?
Imports sets of references found in database searches
Provides a place to keep unlimited number of article references associated pdfs, charts, illustrations etc along with its abstract and research notes
Inserts references into your thesis or publication and automatically formats 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!
