Collect. Collaborate. Create. From Anywhere.
Store, manage, and search for bibliographic references that you have saved into a single file (called a Reference Library or Library)
Import data files saved from a variety of library databases
Export data files from select library databases
Gain direct access to your references when using Microsoft Word, allowing you to insert citations and create bibliographies and lists of cited works automatically in a variety of styles or formats
Register for an online account so you can sync your desktop and online libraries. Then access that library and all your references, groups, and attachments on any computer where EndNote is installed, online, or on your iPad. Group sets are accessible between two desktops. So if you use Windows at work and a MAC at home, your information is accessible from anywhere, on multiple computers, at any time—online or off
With flexible tools for searching and organizing your research, the EndNote for iPad app extends your ability to find, store, create and share beyond your desktop
in order for you to be able to access articles that are linked to in the URL field in EndNote from off campus, add the following before the persistent link: http://rlib.pace.edu/login?url=
We have a tool to help you create a persistent URL that will work from off-campus; follow this link:
Note: Even though the persistent link builder tool says it is for Blackboard, it will also work for URLs in EndNote. When including a URL in your APA formatted bibliography, you will need to remove the http://rlib.pace.edu/login?url= prefix
The instructions in this LibGuide are for Windows PC users. Features may work slightly different depending on which browser you use. Most of them will work the same on a Mac, however, you may encounter differences when exporting into EndNote from some databases.
EndNote X8 user guides for WINDOWS and MAC are available at:
There are also many excellent training videos available from the EndNote site at:
Many library databases include an option to export records directly to EndNote without having to save the records and then import them. See tabs above for instructions for specific databases/interfaces.
According to the APA 6 Publication Manual, "In titles of books and articles in reference lists, capitalize only the first word, the first word after a colon or em dash, and proper nouns."
The default APA 6th Output Style in EndNote does not automatically do this. By downloading the APA 6th - Sentence Case Output Style you can have EndNote make the first two changes automatically. It is not programmed to automatically recognize proper nouns or acronyms.
See the Changing Case Preferences instructions on this page for how to create a personalized list of exceptions to the sentence case rule so EndNote will not make certain names and words and acronyms lower case.
You can replace abbreviated journal titles in PubMed records in EndNote with the full journal names as required in APA format by importing a list of journal titles from EndNote.
