EndNote for PC

A comprehensive guide to the reference management software EndNote.

Streamlined referencing

  • Endnote has Cite While You Write (CWYW) functionality that enables you to simultaneously add in-text citations and create bibliography entries when working in Word
  • CWYW commands are on an EndNote X9 or EndNote X8 tab automatically added to the Word ribbon when you download Endnote

EndNote X8 tab

  • Citations and references added using CWYW have embedded field codes linking them to their EndNote record
  • A key advantage of CWYW is that if you discover you have incorrectly referenced a source cited multiple times in a document, correcting it once in your library will automatically correct the citations linked to it in Word 
  • However, CWYW's embedded field codes negate Word commands and citations or bibliography entries must be edited from the CWYW tab
