EndNote is a citation manager. It allows you to manage your citations in many formats, attach full-text PDFs, and organize these into groups. Citations can be imported into EndNote from databases as you are doing your research. Once you've collected your sources, you can use the software to cite your sources in your word processor and build bibliographies.

Why Use a CItation Manager

Citation mangers help you organize your research, share citations, and consistently cite your sources.

CItation managers allow you to

  • Import citations from databases and the web.
  • Organize your citations by category (project, topic, etc.).
  • Sync your resources across different computers.
  • Store, access, and annotate PDFs.
  • Collaborate with others by sharing your citation libraries.
  • Input citations directly into your word processor.
  • Easily switch between various citations styles.
