EndNote is available for free to UAB students through a site license. The newest version is EndNote X9 which was released in August 2018.
EndNote may require a new library be created the first time the program is opened.
General Safety Notes from Clarivate Analytics
EndNote libraries are made up of two parts: the .enl file and the .data folder. These two parts must be kept together as both are needed for the library to work correctly.
EndNote libraries should be kept on your computer's hard drive. Storing and editing libraries on a portable (usb / flash / thumb) or network drive can lead to corruption and performance issues.
EndNote libraries should never be stored in cloud-syncing folders such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, SugarSync, etc. Syncing folders corrupt EndNote libraries over time. (see safety note for MacOS versions 10.12 [Sierra], 10.13 [High Sierra], 10.14 [Mojave], and 10.15 [Catalina])
Several methods are available for adding references to the EndNote library.
This method may be used to add references by exporting a file directly to EndNote from within the resource.
Follow the instructions for PsycINFO, PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar in the direct export box.
This method may be used to add references by importing a saved file using a matching filter in EndNote.
It may be used as a work around when it is not possible to add references from resources using direct export.
It may also be used to import PDF files to create a new reference from the metadata with the full text attached.
This method may be used to add references such as web pages by creating a new reference and manually entering the information.
EndNote may be customized to find full text available through the UAB Libraries.
This setting allows access to full text available through the UAB Libraries for all users.
This setting allows access to full text available through the UAB Libraries for off-campus users.
If EndNote is able to find the full-text, a PDF file is attached to the reference.
References may be organized using groups and groups may be organized using group sets.
Group sets are heading above custom, smart, and combination groups (#1).
Custom groups contain references added by dragging them and are manually updated (#2).
Smart groups add references based on search criteria and are automatically updated (#3).
Combination groups combine references from other groups and are automatically updated (#4).
Follow the instructions below to generate a bibliography:
Follow the instructions below to cite sources using Microsoft Word:
NOTE: If there are errors in the reference, find the matching record in the EndNote library and fix the data in the fields then click on the update citations and bibliography button in the Word document.
