About EndNote

What is EndNote?

While not free through ECU, EndNote is available through a one-time purchase with an optional upgrade. However, before purchasing, EndNote supplies a free trial for 30-days to test the software and determine how useful its features are to you. Also note that EndNote provides the software at a discounted price to students. Additionally, ECU's Laupus Librarians have a personal subscription to help faculty with migrating their references.

This citation management software allows you to insert in-text citations while silmultaneously creating a bibliography through its Cite While You Write feature in Microsoft Word. EndNote also grants you the opportunity to get published through its Manuscript Matcher element. Through it, you're able to match your paper with relevant and reputable journals. Lastly, this tool provides quicker ways to discover PDFs for your research that you can then skim, review, annotate, and save to your library for later use.


In addition to these prominent features, EndNote allows for:
- Easy sharing of your library and collaborations with others
- Neatly storing your references and research through directives created by you
- Syncing all of your data across multiple devices by utilizing the Cloud

Again, Please Note: ECU Libraries does not have a campus license to EndNote. If you have a personal subscription to EndNote and need assistance, contact Kerry Sewell at the Laupus Health Sciences Library.


Extra Help:
- For additional help, the EndNote website has an entire YouTube channel of curated video tutorials to help its users fully utilize their software. Below are two of their tutorials for operating EndNote via Mac and Windows.
