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