This guide provides guidance for students and staff on the use of Reference Management Software such as Endnote. These tools can help you to:
Collect and Store your references in a single place (a desktop or online account).
Organise your references to match your publications or thesis
For example: From a complete reference library of everything you have read, create collections of those relevant to a particular article you intend to publish, or a particular chapter of your thesis.
Attach notes and full text documents to your references for easy retrieval.
Semi-automate the inclusion of in-text citations, footnotes and endnotes in your work.
Create a bibliography or reference list at the touch of a button, from one of thousands of possible referencing styles, and switch between referencing styles instantly without needing to re-format or re-type your references manually.
De-duplicate references where you have searched across multiple databases and search engines, which can be incredibly useful for systematic reviews as well as general research practice.
The University provides access to a desktop version of Endnote through both the managed desktop service (on campus) or through a licence to install Endnote on your own personal device.
Getting your own copy of Endnote
Instructions on how to obtain a free copy of the licence for use on personal devices at home are as follows:
The University also provides bookable training workshops (Introductory and Advanced) on using Endnote, as well as drop-in sessions to help with any problems you encounter. These can be booked via the University Training Booking system.
