What is EndNote ?

EndNote Desktop is software used to manage your references and format your bibliography.  It is produced by Clarivate Analytics and University of Tasmania has a site-wide licence.  The latest version at UTAS is EndNote X8.  

Freely available for University of Tasmania staff and students 

Training and support                    

EndNote enables you to:

  • transfer and store references from electronic databases and library catalogues
  • insert citations to Word as you write
  • change styles easily and format a bibliography
  • view and annotate your PDFs
  • find fulltext
  • sync your library and work across devices and platforms



The latest available licenced version at UTAS is still EndNote X8 (Mac or Windows). 

[Existing EN users may see advertising for the release of X9-   Ignore X9 for now.  We will advise when we move to and support the next version of EndNote at UTAS, after further testing]

Who might find it useful ?

  • Researchers including Postgraduates needing to manage a large number of references for a literature review or thesis
  • Researchers writing journal articles needing to submit a manuscript conforming to specific journal or publisher style
  • Students managing references for a major assignment 

Tip: Learning to use reference management software effectively can save time, however proof-reading is still important. It is good practice to understand the principles of correct academic referencing prior to learning reference management software.  Check against a style guide before finalising your work.
