EndNote X9

Alternative Options

Along with EndNote, there are a number of reference management programs with the functionality to store, read, annotate and cite the literature throughout the research and writing process. Mendeley and Zotero are two popular alternatives to EndNote, that we briefly look at in this guide.

When choosing reference management software, remember, there's no ultimate right or wrong. Each package will have its own set of features and functions, and naturally, all will come with their own pros and cons.

Ultimately, you'll need to consider your own circumstances and/or research needs, and choose the reference manager which meshes best with your personal or collaborative workflows.
