EndNote will

  • gather, store and manage references
  • automatically create and format bibliographies in your referencing style
  • search and retrieve records from catalogues and databases
  • insert citations directly into documents in your referencing style.

EndNote Desktop

EndNote Desktop is the full version of the EndNote software. We recommend it for researchers, Honours, postgraduates and anyone else who needs to keep track of a large number of references in their research work.

EndNote Online

This is the online version of EndNote Desktop. We recommend it for undergraduates, Vocational Education students and anyone who needs to use a small number of references in their assignments.
