About the program #
EndNote is a reference tool - software for finding, registering, organizing and using literature references. For more detailed information on EndNote, see the developer's software information.
Several literature databases have functions that allow you to export directly to EndNote, which makes it very easy to add references. In EndNote you can also directly search in all the external literature databases that UBiT subscribes to. This is possible for all databases that uses the Z39.50 search protocol (such as Bibsys), which applies to the majority of the databases that UBiT subscribes to.
EndNote can be used directly in Microsoft Word and LibreOffice by using the "Cite while you write" option.
Using EndNote as a reference management tool #
EndNote can also help you find articles that you can link to the references in your library. When you use EndNote you will automatically create a reference list, and your in-text references and the reference list will be correctly formatted according to the reference style you want to use.
The NTNU libraries have made several guides and user manuals containing useful information about EndNote:
- Guide from the Dragvoll Library
- Guides from the Medicine and Health Library
- Guide (v. X8) from the Natural Science Library
On EndNote’s homepage you can also find video tutorials.
You learn how to
- create and build your EndNote library
- import references from websites and databases
- change reference style
Different disciplines use different reference styles, such as APA, Harvard or Chicago. Students will find useful information on different reference styles in VIKO. EndNote has a default Harvard style, with author names in uppercase (e.g. ARMSTRONG). The NTNU University Library has made its own NTNU Harvard style in lowercase (e.g. Armstrong).
If you are a PhD student or researcher, remember to check the required reference style before you submit your manuscript to a journal. See tips for submitting articles in PhD on track.
