Managing Your References
EndNote is a licensed software program that enables you to build and manage your own 'libraries' of references and to create citations and bibliographies with your word processor. The current version is EndNote X7.
EndNote is available on student computers throughout UCL. Staff may download it to UCL computers from ISD. EndNote cannot be downloaded to personal computers.
Many electronic articles available via UCL's subscriptions can be harvested
using the Find Full Text function. You will first need to establish the
OpenURL path using these instructions. For articles that are not retrieved, search the Library Catalogue within Explore by journal title to ascertain availability.
EndNote Web and EndNote Basic
EndNote Web is an online version of EndNote, available for free to UCL staff and students. To register for an account, open EndNote on a UCL computer (if there isn't an icon on the desktop, it will be in Program Files), go to Tools, select Sync and Sign Up. EndNote Web has fewer functions and features than EndNote, but once registered you can use it anytime on any computer.
EndNote Basic is a cut-down version of EndNote available for free to all.
To use EndNote Web and EndNote Basic with Word on personal computers, install the 'Cite While You write' plug-in from the 'Format' section.
Mac users may need to change the Preference within Word to view the EndNote Basic toolbar.
Help and Support and Training
The official EndNote website provides technical support, FAQs, downloads and tutorials for both versions.
Library staff offer training sessions on EndNote. There are weekly scheduled sessions every Tuesday and Friday from 11am until 12noon. Please email email@example.com to check availability and to book sessions, or if you have any questions or queries when using EndNote.
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.
