EndNote is an industry standard software tool for publishing and managing bibliographies on your computer.
It enables you to:

  • quick alterations of citation style and
  • instant citation in Word.

The web-based version, EndNote Web, is integrated with your desktop software and enables mobility and collaborative sharing of references. Deakin University has an institutional licence to EndNote and provides access to the web-based EndNote Web via the Web of Knowledge database. EndNote is suitable for postgraduates and researchers.
