How to Cite and Manage Sources

What is EndNote Online?

EndNote Online is a cloud-based citation manager that allows for gathering, storing, and managing citations.

EndNote Online accounts can be accessed from any computer with internet access. Citations can be directly transferred from selected databases (Web of Science, Ebsco), imported from saved (exported) records, or entered individually.

EndNote Online is not the same as EndNote desktop, though they have similar features.
