EndNote

EndNote

The WA Health libraries have a whole of WA Health licence for EndNote for work or home installation.

EndNote 20 is the current version for computers running on Windows 10 and Office 365.

To have EndNote installed or updated on a work computer S & EMHS sites (except for FSH) should log a job with HIN [Intranet link only] or with the Help Desk on 13 44 77.   FSH staff should log a job on x21111 or email the Help Desk

If you are also running EndNote on your home computer, please upgrade your home software to match the version on your work computer if you plan on using your EndNote library across the two environments. It can be frustrating and confusing if you encounter problems due to the lack of backwards compatibility when using your EndNote libraries.

Why use EndNote?

Using EndNote is a great way to manage your references. The software will help you to keep track of your references and use them in your research and publications.

When you are searching databases like Medline/PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, PsycINFO or Google Scholar you will be able to export your results to EndNote.

PDF copies of articles (if they have associated metadata), can be imported into EndNote and used to complete the reference details automatically.

You can harvest PDFs from the Library collection to go with the references in your library using the Find Full Text function.  Note that you will need to change your preference settings for this to work.

Once you have created your EndNote library you will be able to insert the references into your Word documents (using the Cite While You Write feature).  You can create in-text references and a bibliography that can be formatted in the reference style of your choice (Vancouver, APA, Harvard etc).
