FPM Library Orientation: CITATION MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

Citation

 

Citation management software helps you organize the articles that you find when searching in databases, and automates the process of creating your bibliography when you're writing. There are many citation management software packages available, each of which has its own strengths and weaknesses.

To use EndNote Basic you must sign up for an account. If you have a Web of Science account, that account will also work for EndNote Basic.

 

 

 

 

You can save citations from many of the Library subscribed databases and import them into your EndNote basic library using a simple two-step process.

While in your database, you need to export the selected citations or save the information from the database in either "EndNote" or "RIS" format. Remember what database you search.

 

Cite While You Write™ Plug-In

Use the EndNote plug-in to insert references, and format citations and bibliographies automatically while you write your papers in Word. This plug-in also allows you to save online references to your library in Internet Explorer for Windows.
