Your options for managing citations has expanded! EndNote Web is a new tool that allows you to store citations online (which are then available from any computer with internet access) and create a bibliography or use it with Word to insert references into a paper & create a reference list in just the right citation style.
For those who also have EndNote desktop version X, you can transfer the citations from one to the other. EndNote desktop is more robust than the web version, but the web version is more flexible in where you can use it. The desktop version must be purchased, but EndNote Web can be used by UCSD faculty, staff, and students for no cost.
With EndNote Web you can:
- Import citations directly from Web of Science
- it also captures the times cited information
- Search PubMed from within EndNote Web
- Share folders with colleagues
- Use the EndNote Web Cite While You Write plug-in
The EndNote Web Cite While Write toolbar plug-in for Word allows you to search for the citations in your EndNote Web library and insert the citation(s) where you need them in your paper. A format option on the toolbar lets you change the citation style as often as needed and you can choose from hundreds of pre-formatted styles. Once you have created an account for EndNote Web, look for the installation instructions under Format References – Format Paper to find the link to download the plug-in. (Only MS Word for Windows is supported at this time.)
