macOS Software Update
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MAC USERS
If you have updated your macOS system to 10.15 Catalina and are running EndNote X8 or earlier, you may be experiencing problems. Please visit the Mac Users tab for more information.
EndNote is a citation management program that allows you to:
Create and maintain your own searchable database of literature references
Centralize and organize your research information
Insert citations into word processed documents
Format references and bibliographies in a variety of styles
EndNote is available as downloadable software (Desktop version) for PCs and Macs, and as a cloud-based account online. UNC-CH students, faculty, and staff can purchase EndNote at a discounted price through UNC Software Acquisition.
The Desktop version must be bought, and comes with an online account, but you can also create a free online account (EndNote Basic) that is mostly similar to the online account you would get with EndNote Desktop.
Each user who purchases a license for EndNote Desktop can install their license on up to three devices but cannot share their license with other users.
