Referencing software

What is EndNote?

EndNote is a software application for storing, managing, searching and sharing your references.

EndNote's main functions are:

  • Database manager: stores, manages and searches for your references.
  • Bibliography maker: builds lists of references cited in a paper and at the click of a button will create the bibliography in a number of different styles.
  • Data importer: enables the importing of references from other databases into an EndNote library.
