EndNote & referencing

EndNote logo

EndNote is a reference manager that can help you organise your research and collaborate with others online.

With EndNote, you can:

  • Create and manage citations of books, articles, videos, and more
  • Import citations from many databases
  • Extract metadata from imported PDFs
  • Collaborate with other researchers online
  • Organise your sources using groups, tags, and filters
  • Insert references into Word and PowerPoint

It takes a lot of the hard work out of formatting references, leaving you more time for writing and less time stressing about the punctuation.
