In scholarly work you need to cite your sources and make a list of references:
• for retrieval of documents
• to verify, backtrack and check information
• to avoid plagiarism
EndNote is a program that helps you manage and organise your references. It makes citing and creating bibliographies / reference lists a lot easier, and can be used directly from Word while writing. The citations and the reference list will be displayed according to the selected style. The references can be imported from article databases and library catalogues or created manually.
Use EndNote to:
• create reference lists for articles / books you’re writing
• create curriculum lists
• update your CV to reference your work (what you’ve written / published)
• keep lists of what you’ve read / want to follow up on
A reference is bibliographic data on a source. It includes title, author, editor, publisher, publishing year etc. Certain rules apply.
Note these required fields:
• for articles in journals:
– name of the journal
– volume, issue, year, page number
• for non-print material:
– which medium (e.g. electronic, hand written manuscript, radio interview, drawings, film)
– reading / downloading date for web pages
The style you choose defines the order and appearance of the elements in a reference and citation. Hundreds of styles exist, and many schools and journals have their own self-defined style. You will find a list of these in EndNote. Some of the most common ones are Harvard, Chicago and APA.
Example of a reference in Harvard style:
Cullen, Cheryl Dangel et al. (2006). Graphic design that works: secrets for successful logo, magazine, brochure, promotion, and identity design. Gloucester, Mass.: Rockport.
In EndNote, a library means more or less the same as a folder. You can keep all your references in one library and search them when you need them, or create several libraries for different purposes. EndNote has unlimited storage capacity.
A plug-in that allows Word documents to connect with stored references in EndNote. Provides inline citations and a corresponding reference list with any given reference style.
4 WAYS OF COLLECTING YOUR REFERENCES
1. Import directly from bibliographic databases such as Bibsys
2. Import from databases via RIS format
3. Create each reference manually
4. Search from EndNote’s own search interface (not recommended)
