Use this table to help you decide which version of EndNote suits your needs.

  • Undergraduates and Masters students - we would recommend EndNote online with registration via Web of Science. It has all the functionality you need to store and use references, plus customised styles. It can be accessed from anywhere at any time. And it is free!
  • Research postgraduates and staff - we would recommend Desktop EndNote as it has the full functionality you need, including customising output styles for specific publications. Synchronise it with EndNote online to continue to work on any PC on- or off-campus.
