The motto at EndNote is 'research smarter' through use of their all-inclusive database and analytical system. It’s the top choice for graduate students and is the recommended bibliographical tool for higher education institutions around the world.

You will need to familiarize yourself with the setup and personalization process of EndNote to ensure that your information is in the correct style and format.

The world of research is always evolving, so the support keeps providing updates and plug-ins to keep you as up-to-date as possible.

The latest version, EndNote9, is especially useful. It contains a more proficient means to share databases among colleagues either in a single location or by remote access.

Where can you run this program?

Endnote can be used on Windows, macOS, and as an online service.

Is there a better alternative?
