EndNote X9

Wrap It Up

You can use EndNote to improve your writing through the efficient management and formatting of the sources you gather as part of your research processes.

Top tips:

  • Know and understand the protocols of your referencing style thoroughly - although EndNote and other reference management tools save you time, your familiarity with the style/s used in your school or college will enable you to check the accuracy and consistency of the citations in your document every time.
  • Data in, data out - the quality of the information in your EndNote library will be reflected in your document. Make time to review the accuracy of the references in your library so that your citations and bibliography are accurate and clean.
  • Use the File>Compressed Library command to make regular backups of your library.
  • Review Clarivate Analytics The Care and Feeding of Healthy EndNote Libraries for preventing corruption and damage of your library.
