Pharmacology: Using EndNote

A guide to finding information in pharmacology. Includes links to key resources and sources of help.

Using a reference management system is vital when you do your final year projects, but can also help you create accurate references in your other assignments. EndNote is one such system which can be used to store references, and then insert the citation in your Word document, automatically building the bibliography for you in the correct style.

Getting started

There are two versions of EndNote - EndNote Online and Desktop EndNote. EndNote Online is recommended for undergraduate and masters courses as it comes with the referencing styles you need ('Harvard for Reading', 'Vancouver for Reading' and 'Vancouver for Reading Footnote') and you will have fewer technical issues. If you are doing a PhD then Desktop EndNote will be a more appropriate tool.

Just follow the step-by-step guide below or watch the videos to learn how to register for an account, add references to EndNote Online, and use it with Word.

I also support the use of Desktop EndNote and Mendeley for reference management. Although neither of these automatically come with the custom referencing styles you will need. If you want to explore these options you can find videos and step-by-step guides in the following pages:
