What is EndNote?

Millions of researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians use EndNote to search online bibliographic databases, organize their references, images and PDFs in any language, and create bibliographies and figure lists instantly. Instead of spending hours typing bibliographies or using index cards to organize their references, they do it the easy way by using EndNote and EndNote Online.

Why use a web-based research management system like EndNote Online?

EndNote Online is a web-based service designed to help students and researchers through the process of writing a research paper. Students can organize their references for citing in papers. Professional researchers and graduate students can use EndNote Online as the perfect complement to EndNote and other desktop writing tools, as well as storing references between ISI Web of Knowledge search sessions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Important Information for Mac Users ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   


As you may be aware, Apple will be releasing macOS 10.15 Catalina this fall. Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support with this release, which will impact EndNote. 

EndNote X9 for macOS will be extensively updated for compatibility prior to the launch of Catalina. If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow.

If you are running EndNote X8 or earlier, we recommend upgrading to EndNote X9 as based on early information from Apple, your current version will not work with macOS Catalina. Alternately, you may keep working on your current macOS version.
