11 Introduction to Bibliographic Software & EndNote A software that: stores and organises references from many sources inserts these references into a Word document, and automatically formats your references according to a predefined citation style 11 Comparison of Reference Management Software

12 EndNote Online Guide

13 EndNote Workflow Create an EndNote Library2. Add references to the EndNote Library3. Manage references: using groups & finding duplicates4. Insert references in MS Word (Cite While You Write)5. Change citation style and edit preferences

17 Method 2: Import.txt File Used when references cannot be exported to EndNote. Very few databases e.g. Factiva a.At the database, select the records you want b.Export text (.txt) file and save on desktop c.In EndNote, go to File > Import d.Browse and select the.txt file e.Select Import option > Other filters 17 Which filter to use?
