EndNote as a reference and full text organizer with a collaborative Web tool:

  • Group references according to your research projects and attach up to 45 files per record for managing related materials.
  • Locate full text PDF files for you or create a reference when importing a PDF file. Synchronize references and file attachments to your EndNote Web account.
  • Share groups with other EndNote users easily and manage your ResearcherID publication list.

EndNote as a bibliography maker

  • Cite While You Write™ takes the pain out of citing and formatting references in Microsoft Word, and Writer 3 for Windows. You can also create bibliographies for other word processors using Format Paper (RTF files).

EndNote as an online search tool

  • You can search online bibliographic resources and retrieve references directly into your EndNote library. You can also export references to EndNote from your favorite online resource (see "Direct Export Providers" in EndNote Help).



  • 根据你的研究项目将参考文献归档,并且每个参考文献可以附加高达45个文件以用来管理相关的材料。
  • 查找一个全文PDF 文件或者当导入一个PDF文件时创建一个参考文献。将你的参考文献和文件附件同步到你的EndNote网页帐户。
  • 很便捷的与其它的EndNote用户分享你的引文,并且管理你的研究者ID发表列表。


  •  写作与引用同步消除了在微软Word文档或者OpenOffice中引用及修改参考文献格式的痛苦。你也可以利用Format Paper生成针对其他文字编辑器的参考书目。


  • 你可以搜索在线的参考文献数据库,并把参考文献信息直接导入到EndNote library。你也可以从你最喜爱的在线数据库中将参考文献导入EndNote(详见EndNote帮助中的“直接导入工具”)。
