The WA Health libraries have a whole of WA Health licence for EndNote for work or home installation.
EndNote 20 is the current version installed on WA Health computers.
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
EndNote 21 is now available to download to your personal devices. If you already have EndNote 20 installed on your home PC, you may prefer to delay upgrading to EndNote 21 until this version is installed on WA Health PCs.

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).
The Library provides support in the use of EndNote.
There are other reference management software systems that you may wish to explore. Most offer basic functionality via a free account and a subscription model for additional features.
