  • 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.
  • help you to organise the references you find useful.

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 on a university machine ask your local technician or request via ISS service desk.

Good news:

The licence now covers use on your own device as long as you are a student or member of staff at Swansea University. To download your own copy of EndNote go to You will need to login to MyUni with your Swansea University username and password.

EndNote is in the "Other software available section" of the site. Both Windows and MAC versions are available. You do not need a licence code as this has been bundled in the installer so will be entered automatically.
