EndNote Guide: Home

Learn the basics of Endnote X9. EndNote is a citation management tool used by researchers, and students to store, organize and cite references.

How to get EndNote?

To use EndNote you have to contact the functional network administrator of your department. He or she can add EndNote to your account on the network.

Warning
Important to note is that EndNote and Mendeley give errors when used together in Word. When you want to use EndNote you have to uninstall the Mendeley word-plugin, otherwise you will not be able to add references using EndNote in Word.

 

Important:

On the UMCG-network (either an UMCG-computer or toegang.umcg.nl) you need to start the "EndNote for Word" shortcut to work with a version of Word with EndNote added. This is because of a new way the IT-department wants to make Word plug-ins available. You can find "EndNote for Word" in the start menu. 

It is not recommended to save your EndNote libary on OneDrive. EndNote might have trouble opening the file and it has an increased risk of library corruption.

 

All University desktop computers should already have EndNote installed.

Go to the Windows Start button and choose: All programs > Library Services > EndNote

EndNote available for UMCG

EndNote is the leading reference management software and is available on the UMCG-network.

With EndNote you can:

  • import references from databases such as PubMed or Web of Science
  • store, organize and edit your references
  • Cite while you write in Word and thus using references in a correct way in your manuscript
  • Choosing the right citation style in Word, such as Vancouver, and journal-specific formats
  • Share your references with others

EndNote (the desktop application) can hold an unlimited number of references. We recommend using the desktop application if you are heavily engaged in research. 

The current version of EndNote in use at the UMCG and RUG is EndNote 20.
