EndNote Information
Millions of researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians use EndNote to search online bibliographic databases, organize their references, images and PDFs in any language, and create bibliographies and figure lists instantly. Instead of spending hours typing bibliographies, or using index cards to organize their references, they do it the easy way—by using EndNote! And EndNote Web is included with EndNote so you can collaborate with others easily. EndNote for Windows and Macintosh is a valuable all-in-one tool that integrates the following tasks into one program:
  • Search bibliographic databases on the Internet
  • Organize references, images, PDFs and other files
  • Watch the bibliography and figure list appear as you write!
  • Collaborate using EndNote Web, the Web-based research and writing component of EndNote

Search bibliographic databases on the Internet:
  • Using EndNote's Connect...and Search... commands, you can search Internet databases just as easily as you can search your EndNote library on your computer.
  • Simply open any of more than 3,900 predefined connection files and you're online and searching.
  • Access hundreds of remote bibliographic databases, including Web of Science, Ovid, PubMed, the Library of Congress, and university card catalogs from EndNote.
  • Connect to data sources worldwide—EndNote provides MARC formats that support native language libraries around the world.
  • Search remote bibliographic databases using EndNote's simple search window—great for locating specific references.
  • Export references directly from Web of Science, Highwire Press, Ovid, OCLC, ProQuest and more.
  • Save and load search strategies at the click of a button.
  • Drag and drop references between EndNote libraries in one simple step. No additional importing required.

Organize references, images, PDFs and other files in a library:

  • Create an unlimited number of libraries of any size: In EndNote, bibliographic data is entered into a record by filling out a simple template that has the proper fields displayed for a given type of reference. There are 46 customizable reference types, covering a variety of materials from Ancient Texts to Web Pages, each with up to 52 fields for entering references and linking to PDF and image files. And you can organize references in any Unicode-supported language.
  • Group references: Create custom groups, including smart groups that update automatically as references are added to a library, for instant access to subsets of references. You can create groups containing both custom and smart groups, or by comparing, combining and suppressing existing groups, for easier organization. These main and sub-groups can be re-arranged at any time with a simple drag-and-drop action.
  • Find full text articles automatically: EndNote will locate and download full text for you—no additional steps required! Select one or more references, a group, or your entire library and have EndNote scan for full text available to you. When the full text is found, EndNote downloads and links it to the appropriate reference automatically—while you continue with your work.

  • Import and Search PDFs: Import a file or a folder of PDFs directly into your EndNote library. The basic bibliographic data is extracted for most PDFs and you can even search the contents of a PDF.

  • Store PDF and other files with your EndNote library: Organize up to 45 files per reference in the "File Attachment" field. Drag and drop files onto a reference for auto-linking and storage with the library references—links never break.
  • Organize image files: Track images including charts, figures and equations with a caption, keywords and more.
  • Customize the reference library display: Click-sort column headings, adjust column widths, and choose up to 8 fields to display.
  • Preview and edit references: Using the Preview pane in the library window, you can preview selected references in over 4,500 bibliographic styles. And you can use the Quick Edit tab, also in the library window, to quickly modify a reference.
  • Includes hundreds of import filters: There are many sources of bibliographic data that can be used to help you build your EndNote library of references. EndNote includes over 700 import filters for a variety of online database providers (e.g. Ovid, EBSCO). You can create and modify import filters as well. Once you've downloaded the references in a tagged format, choose the appropriate import filter to import the data into your EndNote library.
  • Link your EndNote records to the Web: Link your references to full-text articles or other material on the Web. You'll find links created automatically when you connect and search online resources within EndNote.
  • Use Term Lists for consistent data entry: Term Lists store glossaries of keywords, author names, or any other terms that are important to managing your references. As you enter new terms, EndNote suggests terms from these lists to facilitate data entry and to ensure terms are entered consistently. Pre-defined Journal Term Lists are provided for biomedicine, chemistry, and the humanities—complete with common abbreviations of journal names used in bibliographies.
  • Searching: Use Quick Search in the toolbar to search all fields in an EndNote library, or the Search... command for additional options. You can limit your searches to specific fields such as Author name, Year, or Keywords and select a variety of operators.
  • Global Editing: Use the Change Text, Change Field, and Move Field commands to modify existing references. These commands can automatically add a term to all or some of your references. These are useful tools for labeling groups of references as well as for fixing common typos or spelling mistakes.
  • Sorting: Set up multi-level sorts on up to five fields of your choice such as Year, Journal, and Title. Each level can be sorted in ascending or descending order. Column headings in the reference library window provide instant sorts on the displayed fields.
  • Customize Settings: The settings for customizing your EndNote library display, bibliographic preferences, and other options are organized in one easy-to-access Preferences panel.
  • Running EndNote on a Network: Use EndNote on a network and share libraries across mixed platforms.

Watch bibliographies appear as you write!
  • Create instant bibliographies in Microsoft Word, Apple Pages '09 and OpenOffice.org Writer 3: Locate citations with Cite While You Write™(patent pending) technology. Watch the bibliography appear as you insert citations in your manuscript.
  • Include multiple bibliographies within a single Word document—specify end of chapters, end of document,
    or both
  • Track cited references in Microsoft Word: A traveling library of cited references follows the Microsoft Word document. When you're ready to send your paper to colleagues, the references travel with it. You can transfer references directly from colleagues’ papers to use in your EndNote library with the export traveling library feature.  You can also view a citation report of references cited in your Word document with an auto-group in the EndNote library.
  • EndNote handles even the trickiest bibliographic details: EndNote includes bibliographic features that address a wide range of formatting issues in the humanities, biomedicine, physical, life, and social sciences. Here are some of the advanced formatting features EndNote handles with ease:
    * Shortened forms of references in footnotes, including "Ibid."
    * Numbered text notes within a bibliography
    * Options for anonymous works
    * Hanging indent option
    * Capitalization options for author names or title
    * Composite styles that group citations by number and letter (popular with chemistry styles)
  • Includes more than 4,500 bibliographic styles: EndNote comes with more than 4,500 predefined bibliographic styles for the leading journals. Each style can be modified, or you can create new styles.
  • Use EndNote built-in Word templates to guide you through the exacting manuscript requirements of publishers.
    * Select a predefined template from the Word File menu or the EndNote Tools menu to begin your publishing process.
    * Completed manuscripts are now submission-ready with all the key elements in addition to EndNote’s instantly formatted in-text citations, bibliography and figure list.
