Introduction to EndNote

EndNote is citation management software used for organizing your references (PDF, images, Word doc., Excel spreadsheet, WAV files etc.), managing and storing your references in a single file and creating instant bibliographies in Microsoft Word.

During your research and literature review process, you may have gathered numerous references from a myriad of resources such as printed materials as well as electronic journals, electronic books and online databases.  Keeping track of all these references can be a challenging task if you intend to type/write them down or use index cards.

Endnote can help you in overcoming this problem.  These are a number of features available in the software:

  • organize reference images, PDFs and other files
  • import and search PDFs
  • attach and store files together with the respective citations
  • sort your citations
  • create instant  bibliographies in MS Word
