Organize References in a Database:

Create an Unlimited Number of Databases: In EndNote, bibliographic data is entered into a record by filling out a simple template that has the proper fields displayed for a given type of reference. EndNote has 25 customizable reference types including journal article, book, electronic source and conference proceedings with up to 38 fields for entering data including abstract and notes. You can customize the reference types to add fields of your own. Each EndNote database can store up to 32,000 references.

Customize the Database Display: The EndNote database can be customized to display exactly the information you need to view. Resize columns by grabbing vertical column edges and use the horizontal scroll bar to see more of each reference. Click on column heading for instant sorting.

Preview Formatted References: Using the Preview pane in the database window, you can preview selected references in more than 700 bibliographic styles.

Includes More Than 250 Import Filters: There are many sources of bibliographic data that can be used to help you build your EndNote database of references. EndNote includes more than 250 customizable import filters for a variety of online and CD-ROM database providers (e.g., Dialog, SilverPlatter). You can create your own import filters as well. Once you've downloaded the references in a tagged format, choose the appropriate import filter to import the data into your EndNote database.

Please Note: If you have access to a library catalog or bibliographic database that supports the Z39.50 protocol, you can use EndNote to search and retrieve references directly into EndNote. This removes the need to learn a separate program to access online databases or go through extra steps of saving the references to a text file and importing them into EndNote. EndNote includes more than 250 connection files to access and search online databases.

Launch a Web Browser: EndNote records include a URL field to store World Wide Web addresses. By selecting the Open Link... command, you can automatically start your Web browser (e.g., Navigator, Internet Explorer) and link to online journals, full-text articles or any other web address stored within your EndNote record. You can also use this feature to link to files stored on your hard drive (such as graphics and word processing documents).

Term Lists: For consistent data entry in your EndNote database, terms such as Author names, journals, and keywords are automatically added to the Term List upon importing or manual entry. Term Lists store glossaries of keywords, author names, or any other terms that are important to managing your references. As you enter new terms, EndNote suggests terms from these lists to facilitate data entry and to ensure terms are entered consistently. Auto-completion of terms provide quick record entry.

Pre-defined Journal Term Lists are provided for biomedicine, chemistry, and the humanities--complete with common abbreviations of journal names used in bibliographies.

Searching: The Search... command in EndNote offers a high degree of flexibility and control in designing searches. You can limit your searches to specific fields such as Author name, Year or Keywords. You can also choose a general search, one that searches on all fields in a database.

EndNote allows you to create unlimited length search strings using the boolean connectives AND, OR, and NOT. With the QuickFind feature EndNote will display your search results almost
instantaneously, even if your database has more than 10,000 records in it. EndNote also allows you to use comparative operators (greater than, less than, equal, etc.) and to search for a range of references between two values. There are also options to combine search results and restrict searches to only the references currently showing in the Library window.

Global Editing: Use the Change Text and Change Field commands to modify existing references. EndNote's Change Text and Change Field features help you to keep a clean and organized library. These commands can automatically add a term to all or some of your references. These are useful tools for labeling groups of references as well as for fixing common typos or spelling mistakes.

The Change Text ... command searches for text in your references, and either deletes or replaces it with other text. For example, you can use this command to search for a misspelled word and replace it with the correct spelling. The Change Field... command can insert text at the beginning or end of the field, replace the contents of the field with other text, or delete the entire contents of the field. For example, you can use this command to add "Reprint on File" to the Notes field of a set of references.

The Move Field... command provides a way to transfer the entire contents of one EndNote field to another field within the same reference.

Sorting: In EndNote, you can sort references on any fields you choose such as Year, Journal, Title or Label. You can sort on up to five fields in either ascending or descending order. You can do an instant sort by clicking on the column headings in the reference database window.

Customize EndNote's Settings: The settings for customizing your EndNote database display, bibliographic preferences, and other options are organized in one easy-to-access Preferences panel.

Creating Bibliographies: Locate citations in Microsoft Word with Cite While You Write technology. Watch the bibliography appear as you insert citations in your manuscript.

If you use Microsoft Word for Windows or Macintosh or WordPerfect, please read about the EndNote Add-in. The Add-in lets you create one-step bibliographies using these word processors.

For all other word processors: To use EndNote to cite references in a paper and then create a bibliography for the paper, you simply insert the necessary citations from your EndNote database into the text of your word processing document. When you have completed the paper, you select a bibliographic style (e.g., Chicago, APA, JAMA) and tell EndNote to "format" a bibliography for the paper. EndNote scans the paper, finds the citations you pasted, modifies the in-text citations and adds a formatted bibliography to the end of your paper.

Collaborate With Colleagues Easily: Collaborate easily with others as your traveling library of cited references follows the Microsoft Word document. When you're ready to send your paper to colleagues, the references travel with it. When the manuscript is complete, any of the authors who use EndNote can create a publication-ready document in one-step!

More Than 700 Bibliographic Styles: EndNote comes with more than 700 predefined bibliographic styles for the leading journals. You can also easily create an unlimited number of your own styles. You simply create a template that displays the reference fields and punctuation in the proper order for your style [for example: Author (Year). Title, Volume...]. Other settings let you adjust the format of the author names, page numbers, journal names, and the sort order for the references.

Advanced Bibliographic Options: EndNote includes bibliographic features that address a wide range of formatting issues in the humanities, biomedicine, physical, life, and social sciences. Here are some of the advanced formatting features EndNote can handle with ease:

  • Shortened forms of references in footnotes, including "Ibid."
  • Group multiple references under one bibliography number
  • Numbered text notes within a bibliography
  • Options for anonymous works
  • Hanging indent option
  • Capitalization options for author names or title

Running EndNote on a Network: EndNote is an ideal bibliographic package for any lab or department that would like to make the EndNote application and its libraries of references available to multiple users simultaneously. Here are some facts you should know about running EndNote on your network:

  • Users can share EndNote libraries (databases) simultaneously as long as the libraries are set to read-only or locked status. Multiple users can access the same EndNote library to perform searches, copy references to their documents, and format bibliographies.
  • Users can maintain an individual Preferences (setting) file locally on their hard drive.
  • EndNote libraries are compatible across Windows and Macintosh network platforms. This means that Macintosh and Windows users can access an EndNote database over a network simultaneously. There is no conversion necessary!
  • EndNote can be used in conjunction with license key server software to limit the number of simultaneous users who can access the software at a given time.
