EndNote to Manage Your Citations

EndNote is a citation manager that enables you to:

  • Keep all your references and reference-related materials in a searchable personal library.

  • Synchronize your references between up to three personal computers, an EndNote Web library and your iPad or iPhone through the EndNote Sync command. (You must be the owner and user of all three computers.)

  • Set up a sharing team to grant access to your designated synced library and effortlessly collaborate with up to 1,000 co-authors and colleagues.

  • Create formatted citations, bibliographies or independent reference lists in Word or Google Docs.
