EndNote is a leading reference management tool that helps save you time when writing research papers. Using this single software platform, you can:

  • Import references from OneSearch, supported databases and Google Scholar.
  • Collect, organize, edit and add tags to your references.
  • Add and annotate the PDFs you have added to your EndNote Library.
  • Insert in-text citations and create bibliographies in many citation styles directly within Microsoft Word.
