Managing references: EndNote
A guide to some of the systems you can use to help with referencing
EndNote online - a web-based product for storing references and using them in Word. An enhanced version is available to University members by registering via the Web of Science. Recommended for undergraduates and masters students.
Desktop EndNote - a software programme which can be used via the AppsAnywhere service on the campus PCs or downloaded free from the DTS Self-Service Portal. Recommended for PhD students and researchers.
Word plugins - conflict between EndNote and Mendeley
The EndNote and Mendeley plugins in Word don't play nicely together, so you might experience problems if you have both installed. The most common error message seen is 'Cannot edit range' when trying to insert a citation from EndNote into a Word document.
To stop this happening you have to disable the Mendeley plugin by following these steps:
Open the File menu in Word.
Select Options then Add-Ins.
From the Manage list at the foot of the window select Word Add-ins and click Go.
Unselect the Mendeley add-in.
You will need to do this every time you open a document in Word.
Populate your library by: typing in references; exporting from compatible databases; using the online search within EndNote; importing references from other databases or from other reference management software.
Use the 'Find fulltext' feature to add PDFs to your references, or manually attach downloaded articles.
Use the EndNote toolbar in Word to insert and format citations.
Clarivate Analytics are the producers of EndNote. They can help with any issue relating to using the product, and should be contacted for any complicated technical problems.
Desktop EndNote for researchers
Sharing your library with other researchers
It is possible to share a library with up to 100 people. All you need is Endnote X7.2 or higher and an Endnote online account. You can only share one library because you can only have one library associated with an online account. If you want multiple online accounts you will need to use a different email address to register for each one. As multiple people will be working on the library it is a good idea to take frequent back ups by going to File > Compressed Library.
