Why choose EndNote?

EndNote is an everyday tool and incorporates multiple features: 

A powerful tool for online research

Connect directly from EndNote to hundreds of online databases (PubMed, Library of Congress, Ovid, OCLC, SilverPlatter and many French-language databases) to search, using filters. You can then import your references directly into your local database. 

A great help for your organization

EndNote offers you advanced reference management tools: automatic sorting tools, lists of common terms, duplicate comparators, the ability to link references to the full article, or organize your references into groups. Your references are thus sorted, prioritized and intelligently linked. 
You can also insert numerous images (BMP, TIFF, JPEG, etc.) or files (MS Excel, Adobe Photoshop, CambridgeSoft ChemDraw etc.). 

Cloud EndNote, the solution for sharing with 100 people simultaneously

EndNote now gives you the ability to share your research, PDF articles, notes and comments with your collaborators around the world. 
With unlimited storage capacity, you can now share for free as many references and PDF files as you want. 

A fast and efficient tool for writing your bibliographies

EndNote integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Word®, Apple Pages and OpenOffice.org’s Writer. With the  “Cite While You Write™” feature, you can locate references and/or illustrations in a EndNote database without leaving your Word document, and insert them into your document without breaking your thought process. EndNote provides instant formatting of references in the body of the document and creation of bibliographic lists at the end of the section or document, tables of illustrations, in alphabetical order or by topic. 

Great support for writing “ready-to-publish” articles

EndNote provides you with more than 6,000 bibliographic styles corresponding to major scientific journals. You can use the predefined templates or create your own to format your references. 
Finally, the predefined article templates for Microsoft Word® make it easy to follow the bibliographic style, structure, and all instructions to authors. 

New features

EndNote 20, the reference management tool, helps you save time, stay organized, collaborate with colleagues and, ultimately, get published.
