Welcome to EndNote!

EndNote is a citation management software that allows users to:

  • Export citations from various databases to EndNote (e.g. PubMed, CINAHL, OneSearch)
  • Format citations in various citation styles (e.g. APA 7th edition, AMA 11th edition)
  • Organize citations in a searchable personal library and share with others.
  • Format bibliographies and in-text citations in word processing documents.

This guide will provide information on setting up your EndNote account and how to use the basic features in EndNote.
