Reference management tools help researchers and students to collect, maintain, share and publish literature references efficiently and in accordance with international standards. Nowadays a whole range of computerised tools for reference management is available. At the NWU we use EndNote.
EndNote is used by millions of researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians to search online bibliographic databases, organise references and related files, and to create bibliographies instantly. The software has to be installed on your computer properly in order to work correctly with word processing programs, and this varies depending on your operating system, word processor and platform. It has frequent upgrades that offer significant new features. It is important to use the manual, and you need to have the software on the computer you are using.
