EndNote: Introduction

Guide to using EndNote at Murdoch University

EndNote X9 is here!

X9 will be available for download in early 2019. In the meantime we are updating this page to reflect the new changes.

Some new features to expect:

  • Web of Science integration – citation reports, view related and source records
  • Manuscript matcher (existing Clarivate tool) now available through EndNote
  • New Group sharing options - not just your entire library.
  • Share “Write” or “Read only” access to your library

Previous versions of EndNote will continue to operate during and after the rollout. Please contact the library if you have any concerns.

See a comparison of X7, X8 and X9 here.

EndNote X9: What's New!

What is EndNote?

EndNote is a software application for storing, managing, searching and sharing your references.

EndNote can help you:

  • Keep your references and related materials in a searchable personal library.

  • Synchronize your references between your personal computers, an online library, and your iPad, through EndNote sync.

  • Share your references with collaborators through EndNote sync.

  • Cite while you write in word-processing documents and create bibliographies or independent reference lists.

EndNote won't:

  • teach you how to reference correctly, you need to know how to do that before using any citation manager. 

It is important to have a good understanding of the principles of referencing before using EndNote. If your calculator tells you 1+1=5, you have to know enough maths to recognize there is a problem. Likewise, it is important to understand the principles of referencing.
