EndNote for Mac


EndNote is a reference management programme widely used by AUT staff and students.

It is designed to

  • Store and organise references
  • Import references from article databases and catalogues
  • Instantly generate bibliographies in different referencing styles
  • Sync with Word to insert in-text citations and full references directly into assignments
  • Support collaboration by making it easy to share references

You still need to know how to reference 

  • You need a working knowledge of APA (or Chicago/Turabian for Art & Design) to enter references manually or to correct imported references which often have minor errors 
  • Some references require non-intuitive choices of EndNote Reference type and / or fields within that Reference type to produce APA-compliant citations. Check the APA 6th & EndNote section of this guide if you are having trouble 
  • For detailed instructions on referencing generally check our APA 6th Referencing Style Guide or our Chicago/Turabian Referencing Guide
