EndNote and EndNote Web
EndNote Web and EndNote (Desktop) - What are they?
They are software packages that enable you to build and manage your own 'libraries' of references, and create citations and bibliographies with your word processor. They are widely used by authors, researchers and students all over the World.
- Build by importing multiple references into the libraries from databases, publishers and catalogues.
- Manage by sorting your references into groups.
- Create ready-formatted citations and bibliographies by inserting references into your word-processed document using the 'Cite While You Write' functions
Click here to log-in to EndNote Web.
EndNote Web is free for School staff and students to use thanks to the Library's subscription to the ISI Web of Knowledge Service for Education. In order to use EndNote Web away from the School, you must first register and log in from an IP-authenticated workstation, i.e. a computer in the School. This confirms your institutional affiliation and initiates access for twelve months. After twelve months, log in again from a School computer to re-establish your association with the School.
'Cite While You Write' with Word
To use EndNote Web with Word on your own computer, you will need to install the 'Cite While You write' plug-in. Installation is easy: click on the relevant link within the 'Format' section on EndNote Web and follow the instructions.
Mac users will also need to change the Preference within Word to view the EndNote Web toolbar. This needs to be done once only:
- Open Word
- Click on Tools
- Choose EndNote X6
- Choose Cite While You Write Preferences
- Choose the Applications tab
- Change from EndNote to EndNote Web
- Click OK
EndNote (Desktop) is available on School computers throughout the School on a site licence. EndNote (Desktop) has some additional tools to EndNote Web, so please ask about EndNote (Desktop) at the Library if you think you will need to do any of the following:
- Edit a referencing style
- Maintain an EndNote library of over 10,000 references
- Create subject bibliographies or documents using Microsoft Word templates
- Create tables and figure lists
- Store images and PDFs. Many articles available online via UCL's subscriptions can be harvested using the Find Full Text function. You will first need to establish the OpenURL path: please follow the instructions here. For articles that are not retrieved, serach the Library Catalogue by journal title to ascertain availability.
Help and Support
EndNote Web and EndNote (Desktop) are fully interoperable and complementary. It is very easy and quick to transfer references between the two, so do sign up for an EndNote Web account to use when you're working off-site. Please see the EndNote Web Quick Reference Card for simple step-by-step instructions on how to transfer references.
The official EndNote website provides technical support, FAQs, downloads and tutorials for both versions.
In addition, have a look at the EndNoteWeb FAQ sheet which addresses common questions about EndNote Web.
Finally, please contact the Library if you have any questions, queries or comments.
Training Sessions in the Library
Library staff offer training sessions in EndNote Web and/or EndNote (Desktop) every Tuesday and Friday from 11am until 12noon. Places are limited so please contact the Library to check availability and to book, or to discuss arranging alternative sessions to address specific issues or cover advanced features.
Journal Titles Database
Ascertain the abbreviation for a full journal title or vice versa here.
You will need to choose a referencing style for your references. There are thousands of styles worldwide, many of which are available on EndNote, but the main styles used for assessed work in the School are Harvard and Vancouver (Numeric). Please talk to your supervisor about which style you should use. Course F project students must consult the Project Guidelines document which contains advice about the specific style to use for the thesis.
UCL Library Services have produced a printed guide to referencing, citations and avoiding plagiarism.
