Q1: What is EndNote?
EndNote is a software program that you can load onto your home or work computer and use to create, manage, and store bibliographic references for easy access and sharing.
Q2: How can EndNote save me time?
EndNote provides the ability to store and compile references in a variety of formats based on journal/publisher guidelines which can then be inserted into MSWord.
It also utilizes manuscript templates for specific journals and assists you in the scholarly communication process by providing ways in which you can collaborate with colleagues.
Q3: Where can I turn for EndNote support?
EndNote support is available in a variety of formats:
Recorded tutorials and videos are available on the EndNote Training website. Clarivate Analytics also provides free live webinars that can assist you with learning to work with EndNote and using it to its full potential.
Do you have a PDF and would like to extract all of the references and place them in an EndNote library? If so, HubMed may be useful to you! The HubMed Citation Finder allows you to copy and paste references from PDF files and convert them into PubMed search results. The results can then be imported into Endnote.
** Please note that this may not work on scanned PDF/Word files and it is recommended that you double check HubMed's citation report to ensure accuracy.
Warning! EndNote 20 is not back compatible with previous versions of EndNote. When you open an existing library in EndNote 20, EndNote will convert the EndNote library over to the new format. This converted library can only be opened on other computers running EndNote X9.3 or higher.
Syncing libraries across computers using different versions of EndNote should not be affected by the compatibility restriction.
EndNote 20 is not officially compatible with macOS Big Sur as Big Sur was released after EndNote 20. Testing is ongoing and EndNote will release compatibility notes once they are complete.
There is a known issue with Macs using M1 chips and the Word plugin. There is a workaround for the issue.
Full compatibility information is available at EndNote's Compatibility page.
EndNote 20 is now available for installation on HFHS and personal computers for HFHS employees, staff, trainees and affiliated students for free from Sladen Library.
This guide will assist you with using EndNote by covering the following: manually creating references, importing references from PubMed MEDLINE, OVID Medline, Editing PDFs within EndNote, selecting output styles, and inserting citations within a Word document.
