Information for academic staff and PhD researchers

EndNote will help you store and organise your bibliographic references. References can be imported from other databases into your own personal database of references. EndNote also provides the facility to insert references into a research paper as you write and can automatically generate a bibliography at the end of your paper. It also allows you to create the bibliography in a number of different styles at a click of a button. EndNote is supported as the University’s standard bibliographic software package.

Obtaining a copy of EndNote

The Library has purchased a site licence for EndNote which allows a copy of the software to be installed on any university-owned computer for academic staff and PhD researchers to use.

If you would like to request a copy of EndNote and/or if you would like further information, please contact IT Customer Services.

Unfortunately, our licence does not permit copies to be made available on personally owned computers. However, as a member of staff, you can arrange to access your office PC from home (VPN) if you have an Internet connection; this will enable you to use EndNote from your home computer or laptop.

Researchers who do not have access to a University computer and taught students are able to purchase a personal copy of EndNote. To purchase the software at a deeply discounted price please go to the Web of Science Group Endnote webpage. Follow the 'check student eligibility' link for discounted purchase and complete the form, including your university e-mail address.


Help and support

Academic staff and PhD researchers may email their faculty librarian to request the USW Harvard EndNote style, which can be emailed to you by return. The research supervisor will be able to offer guidance on referencing style requirements. 
USW referencing guides are available.
