Help using EndNote to manage your references

EndNote will...

Icon for EndNote X7

EndNote will: 

  • store and manage references in your own database so you don't lose track of them.
  • work with Word to format your references in a wide range of styles. 
  • import references from many online databases such as Web of Science without you having to type them in.

What if I don't have EndNote on my PC

EndNote (desktop version) is in the Common Apps section on open access computers. If you don't have it ask your local technician or request via ISS service desk (only available for university owned machines).

The licence doesn't cover home use. If you want to buy the software it is sold by the UK distributor Bilaney Consultants. The link below will give you a discount due to our site licence. 

Macintosh version

A version of EndNote is available for the Macintosh. A quick guide can be found here.

There is also a free EndNote App for IPADs which will sync with your online library. This can be downloaded from iTunes.

EndNote manual

If you are using the desktop version of EndNote you should find a pdf manual installed on your computer. A search for Endnote*.pdf will find it. If not it can be found on the Thomson web site.

Desktop or Online?

There are 2 versions of EndNote available - a desktop version and an online one. The online version is free and is enough for most student work. The desktop version has more features such as the ability to import PDFs and edit styles. We generally recommend the desktop version for Ph.D. students and staff who are doing longer pieces of work. The link below is to a comparison chart.
