EndNote X8: Getting started

Referencing software

What is EndNote?

EndNote is a software application for storing, managing, searching and sharing your references. EndNote's main function is creating a bibliography with the choice of many different styles at the click of a button.



Did you know this about EndNote?

EndNote libraries are made up of two parts: the .enl file and the .data folder. These two parts must be kept together, both are needed for the library to work correctly.
