There is probably a no more tedious task as creating bibliographies for your scientific papers. Not to mention the fact that different journals require different reference styles. Leave behind the tedious work of formatting bibliographies, searching for references, and finding full-text articles. EndNote has been the researchers´ choice for managing references and formatting bibliographies for over 25 years.

EndNote for Windows and Mac integrates the following tasks into one program:

  • Insert citations from your EndNote library into your documents and automatically build a bibliography in over 6000 styles right from Word.
  • Search online libraries and databases directly from EndNote and import references and full-text articles in seconds.
  • Organise, update and share your references with your colleagues, and add personal annotations and notes to your references and full-text PDF articles.

EndNote can be used on Windows and Mac computers, iPad, and online via your web browser.

EndNote X9 has gotten new and improved features for sharing your research and references with your colleagues, updated styles and new reference types, and a new integration with Web of Science for citation reports and manuscript matching.

New collaboration and sharing features in EndNote X9

Group sharing
Group sharing now gives you the ability to share your groups with colleagues right from your EndNote desktop with both read-only or read-and-write access. Let your colleagues get right to what they need; they don't need to sift through your entire library to find what is pertinent to them.

Sharing Permissions
Now you got the ability to choose whether you share a library with full Read-write permissions or the new Read-only mode. You can select the access rights at the time of sharing, or adjust it later, and different access rights can be assigned to different users. Get the peace of mind about sharing your library and don't have to worry about colleagues making changes to your library.

Refreshed styles and new reference types

Updated styles
If your bibliography isn't formatted correctly, you risk your paper getting rejected, even before it is peer-reviewed. With EndNote X9 you get updates to key styles such as Chicago, AMA, MLA and APA. Now you can select from over 7000 styles to format your bibliography and citations.

New reference types
When adding a new reference, you can now select from new references types from the list of reference options. These new reference types include discussion forum, TV episode, social media, and multimedia applications. No more guessing or making up your own reference types. Cite new types of media with confidence.

Web of science integration

Citation reports
Citation reports from Web of Science help you identify what impact your research is having on your area of study. As a researcher, you want to know if the references you are citing are impactful and relevant. To do this with X8 you needed to leave EndNote and go into Web of Science separately, which is time-consuming and breaks your workflow. With EndNote X9 you can generate a Web of Science citation report by selecting a group from your desktop. Leverage core Web of Science metrics by accessing Citation reports directly from the EndNote X9.

Manuscript matcher
As a researcher, you need to know what journals are the best fit for your manuscripts, so that you have the best chance of acceptance. Many fields have hundreds of journal options, and it is hard to determine where to submit your paper. With EndNote X9 you can now create a list of journal suggestions for the paper you are writing. Take the guesswork out of journal submission and find the best-fit journals for your paper.
