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 Web is included with EndNote so you can collaborate with others easily.



Organize references, images, PDFs and other files in a library:
 
  • Create an unlimited number of libraries of any sizeIn EndNote, bibliographic data is entered into a record by filling out a simple template that has the proper fields displayed for a given type of reference. There are 46 customizable reference types, covering a variety of materials from Ancient Texts to Web Pages, each with up to 52 fields for entering references and linking to PDF and image files. And you can organize references in any Unicode-supported language.

  • Group references: Create custom groups, including smart groups that update automatically as references are added to a library, for instant access to subsets of references.And you can create groups containing both custom and smart groups for easier organization. These main and sub-groups can be re-arranged at any time with a simple drag-and-drop action.

  • Find full text articles automaticallyEndNote will locate and download full text for you—no additional steps required! Select one or more references, a group, or your entire library and have EndNote scan for full text available to you. When the full text is found, EndNote downloads and links it to the appropriate reference automatically—while you continue with your work.

  • Store PDF and other files with your EndNote library:Organize up to 45 files per reference in the "File Attachment" field. Drag and drop files onto a reference for auto-linking and storage with the library references—links never break.

  • Organize image files: Track images including charts, figures and equations with a caption, keywords and more.

  • Customize the reference library display: Click-sort column headings, adjust column widths, and choose up to 8 fields to display.

  • Preview formatted references: Using the Preview pane in the library window, you can preview selected references in over 3,700 bibliographic styles.

  • Includes hundreds of import filters: There are many sources of bibliographic data that can be used to help you build your EndNote library of references. EndNote includes over 700 import filters for a variety of online database providers (e.g. Ovid, EBSCO). You can create and modify import filters as well. Once you've downloaded the references in a tagged format, choose the appropriate import filter to import the data into your EndNote library.

  • Link your EndNote records to the Web: Link your references to full-text articles or other material on the Web. You'll find links created automatically when you connect and search online resources within EndNote.

  • Use Term Lists for consistent data entry: Term Lists store glossaries of keywords, author names, or any other terms that are important to managing your references. As you enter new terms, EndNote suggests terms from these lists to facilitate data entry and to ensure terms are entered consistently. Pre-defined Journal Term Lists are provided for biomedicine, chemistry, and the humanities—complete with common abbreviations of journal names used in bibliographies.

  • Searching: Use Quick Search in the toolbar to search all fields in an EndNote library, or the Search... command for additional options. You can limit your searches to specific fields such as Author name, Year, or Keywords and select a variety of operators.

  • Global Editing: Use the Change Text, Change Field, andMove Field commands to modify existing references. These commands can automatically add a term to all or some of your references. These are useful tools for labeling groups of references as well as for fixing common typos or spelling mistakes.

  • Sorting: Set up multi-level sorts on up to five fields of your choice such as Year, Journal, and Title. Each level can be sorted in ascending or descending order. Column headings in the reference library window provide instant sorts on the displayed fields.

  • Customize Settings: The settings for customizing your EndNote library display, bibliographic preferences, and other options are organized in one easy-to-access Preferences panel.
