Article by Daniel Mayper

Published October 22, 2015

If you are currently enrolled in a course that requires research papers, you may be having high school flashbacks to the tedious process of creating a works cited page. Thankfully, Endnote’s software can help you through it.

Daniel Mayper (UB Student, Class of 2016) was raised in Long Beach, a small beach town in Long Island, NY. He already holds an Associates Degree in Marketing and is working towards completing his Bachelors in Economics with a minor in World Trade.  His goal is to one day become a Chief Marketing Officer.

Available free through the UBIT website, Endnote allows you to save and organize your references, generate bibliographies and share your work with groups or colleagues.

Three Easy Steps

Find It

Using the Find it feature, you can search online databases, collect full-text articles and auto-complete your references.

Store It

This feature allows you to organize, store and mark up your research files in custom folders.

For example: If you have 250 references in total and only 15 related to "Economics," you can simply create an "Economics" folder to keep those references organized and separate.

This feature also gives you the ability to access all your research from any desktop or online library, including your annotations and comments.

Create It

Anyone using Endnote has the ability to access a built-in bibliography maker, which allows you to create citations in over 6,000 styles, including APA, MLA, ALA, Harvard and Chicago.

Highlight each source in your library, select which format, and your bibliography is created within seconds.

EndNote tools also provide formats for manuscripts, CVs, grant applications and other research-rich documents.
