How to move library from the H-drive to OneDrive

Please use the steps in the guide to move your library from the H-drive to OneDrive. It is not recommended to just copy the library, this might result in problems syncing your library.

New in EndNote 21

Taken from the EndNote support page:

* Protect Your Work With Data Restoration Function

The single reference restoration feature introduces the ability to compare and restore previous versions of individual references to correct any accidental mishaps. And, if the unthinkable should happen and your library files get deleted or damaged, you can restore your library with our new data restoration function, ensuring your research is not lost.

 

* Stay Organized with Tags
Tags are customizable labels that let you organize your references however you'd like. You can add tags to references and customize the colour and name of the tags. You can add multiple tags to a reference and anyone who you share your library with can view a tag, making tags a great way to quickly and intuitively organize your references.

 

* New Exclusive EndNote Web Interface
With the newly redesigned EndNote Web, you can sync seamlessly between online, desktop, and iOS devices. The brand-new EndNote Web is available only to EndNote 21 customers for 3 years from the activation date.

 

* Cite While You Write in Google Docs™
CWYW is available for EndNote 21 customers in Google Docs™ via Google Workspace Marketplace, making it easier to write your next paper and to collaborate on documents with colleagues. Refer here for more information. 

How to get EndNote?

To use EndNote on the UMCG network or on the Microsoft Surface ("NextGen" laptop) please contact the Central Medical Library at refman@umcg.nl

 

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. Note: on the UMCG laptop you can use the normal shortcut for Word.

It is highly recommended to enable the EndNote synchronization. Do this via "Sync configuration" in the menu on the left in EndNote. All your references, PDFs and groups will then be synchronized online and you will always be able to get them back if something happens to your library.

 

All University desktop computers should already have EndNote installed.

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

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

To use EndNote on the Microsoft Surface ("NextGen laptop") you have to contact the Central Medical Library at refman@umcg.nl.

Since november 2023: EndNote is now locally installed on your laptop (if you have rights for EndNote via the CMB). You don't have to use toegang.umcg.nl anymore. Also on the laptop it is no longer needed to use "EndNote for Word". You can just open the EndNote application and the normal Word shortcut.

 

 

The Central Medical Library can send EndNote to UMCG-employees for usage at home. If you want to use EndNote at home, contact the library at refman@umcg.nl and let us know if you use a Windows or Apple computer.

If you have a university P-number or if you are a student you can use the university's download portal at: https://iris.service.rug.nl/ Here you can log in with your P- or S-number and then search for EndNote.

EndNote for iPad is available as an app.

 

EndNote is not supported as an app for Android. To work with EndNote on an android device you should use Endnote web.

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 is 21. At the RUG it is currently (December 2023) EndNote 20.
