Why Use EndNote?

What is Endnote?

EndNote works as a citation manager. It helps you manage your sources, attach full-text PDFs, and organize these into groups which can be accessed on-the-go. At the same time, you are able to build your bibliographies right from the software and then use EndNote to share your research and collaborate with others.
