EndNote 20

Guide to using EndNote reference management software

Using Cite-While-You-Write

Both EndNote Desktop and EndNote Online can work with Word to create bibliographies or insert references from your library into a Word document. You can then format the document into a citation style of your choice, e.g. Harvard, Vancouver. This facility is called Cite While You Write (CWYW).

See the section above, Using EndNote with Word, for details on how to use Cite While You Write.

EndNote Online toolbar

To use EndNote Online with Word you need to install the Cite While you Write toolbar, if you do not already have it:

  • In EndNote Online, go to the Downloads tab and follow instructions for Cite While You Write.

If you are already using Word with EndNote Desktop and you wish to switch using Word with EndNote Online:

  • Within Word click on the EndNote 20 tab and then Preferences.
  • Click on the Application tab and select EndNote online from the drop-down menu.
  • You will need to fill in your EndNote Online account details so that Word can communicate with your EndNote Online library.
