What is EndNote?
EndNote is reference management software. It is used to manage personal reference data and create bibliographies for writing.
EndNote allows you to create and organise your personal library of searchable references to books, journal articles, conference papers and other publications. You can download references from library catalogues and databases and store the full texts of the references in your Endnote library.
EndNote also enables you to create your bibliographies automatically by inserting references from your EndNote library into a Word document. EndNote formats the bibliography for your paper in the reference style that you choose.
EndNote is available in both a Windows and Mac version.
