What is EndNote Online?

The citation management tool EndNote Online (also known as EndNote Web) helps you organize and format references in an easy way. It consists of a web-based version of the desktop software program EndNote with which you collect and organize all your references that you have either imported from different databases or constructed yourself. Then there is also the Microsoft Word add-in feature called Cite While You Write (CWYW) which lets you easily insert citations in the text and add references to your bibliography from within any Word document. You can choose among thousands of so-called output styles, such as the well-known APA, Oxford, and Vancouver styles, but also journal-specific styles.

If you already have access to the desktop version of EndNote, you can also use EndNote Online for situations when you don't have access to the computer on which you have EndNote (desktop) installed or if you want to share a library with colleagues or fellow students. You can export/import references back and forth from EndNote and EndNote Online.

In this guide, you can follow the numbers 01 to 06 under the EndNote Online tab for a short overview of the different aspects of the tool for a quick start, or just pick a specific section that you are interested in. It follows the structure of EndNote Online tab wise.
