About EndNote

EndNote is software which helps you to organise your references and to automatically format citations, reference lists and bibliographies in Word. There are two versions of EndNote. Both versions of EndNote are compatible with Windows and Mac. View compatibility and system requirements.

EndNote Desktop

EndNote Desktop is the full version of the software that offers more functionality and the ability to customise settings. All staff and students can install the desktop version to their own machines.

EndNote Online

(Formerly EndNote Web) is the free online version of this software. Whilst you are a member of the University of Warwick, you will get an enhanced online account with more referencing styles and storage space. This version will meet the research needs of most undergraduate and postgraduate taught students.
