Reference Management: Endnote

What is Endnote?

EndnoteEndNote Online
EndNote Online, (also known as Endnote Basic), is web-based reference management software. Use it to build a personal collection of references and create reference lists in your required citation style.

It can help take the stress out of referencing by letting you:

  • Import references directly from databases and library catalogues, or manually add them.
  • Store article PDFs, images and objects beside your references.
  • Organise and search for references in your personal library.
  • Add citations to your word-processed document as you write
  • Create your reference list in a range of citation styles.
  • Includes Endnote customisations made by Edinburgh Napier. e.g. Local referencing styles.
