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 is a web-based version of the desktop software program EndNote which you can use to collect and organize all your references.

In this guide, you can follow the different steps in the menu to the left for a quick start, or just pick a specific section that you are interested in. Please contact us if you run into any problems!

Cite While You Write (CWYW)

The Microsoft Word add-in feature called Cite While You Write (CWYW) lets you easily insert citations in your 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.

EndNote Online vs. EndNote desktop

If you already have access to the desktop version of EndNote, you can also use EndNote Online when:

  • you don't have access to the computer on which you have EndNote (desktop) installed
  • you want to share a library with colleagues or fellow students.

You can export/import references back and forth from EndNote and EndNote Online.
