Five Tips for EndNote Users

  1. Add PDF’s to Your EndNote Library - Automatically download full-text PDF’s to your EndNote Library by setting up your EndNote preferences. View a screenshot and the step-by-step instructions here.
  2. Update Your References Before You Start Citing - EndNote references can be updated at any point with the “Find Reference Updates…” tool. Get step-by-step instructions here.
  3. Organize Your References with Custom Groups - Create groups in EndNote to file your references in folders. Find more information here.
  4. Keep Your Bibliography Neat with the “Edit and Manage Citations” Button - Do not use the backspace key when removing EndNote references from a Word document. Instead, use the “Edit and Manage Citations” button in Word. Learn more from our step-by-step instuctions or video.
  5. Beyond PubMed, Add More References to Your Library - If you can’t find a citation in PubMed, try downloading your citations from GoogleScholar to Endnote or learn how to cite a reference manually.
