Guide to using EndNote reference management software

EndNote versions

EndNote is available as:

  • a desktop software application, for which UCL has an institutional licence; The current version available at UCL is EndNote 20. It is also possible to download the previous version X9 (view our guide to EndNote X9).
  • web-based application called EndNote Online (previously called EndNote Web) which may be accessed by anyone from any device with internet access. Access to the full version of EndNote Online is included in UCL's EndNote licence.
  • a free iPad app. There is no app available for Android or other mobile operating systems.

You can use them independently, or synchronise them so you can work with your EndNote references from any device: your own computer, on the Web or on your iPad.  The online and iPad versions do not have all the functionality of EndNote Desktop.
