What is EndNote?

EndNote is a citation management tool you can use to:

  • Create a personal library of searchable references.
  • Insert citations into a Word document in a preferred style or in a format required by a journal.
  • Generate a bibliography automatically.
  • Add available full text to references in your library.
  • Share your library of references with fellow researchers who use EndNote.
