About EndNote

EndNote logo

EndNote is a reference management program. It can be used 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

Unlike Zotero and Mendeley, EndNote is not available for free.

How to Get EndNote

Students, staff, and faculty can purchase EndNote at a discount through Student Stores.

Faculty and Staff can purchase EndNote with departmental funds (if available) through ITS Software Acquisition.
UNC affiliates can also create an Endnote Basic account (which offers more limited features than the full version) through UNC's subscription to the Web of Science database. To see how, take a look at our Endnote Basics page here.

EndNote for iPad

An EndNote iPad App is available for download from the Apple Store. ""

Note: You cannot use the Endnote iPad app without an Endnote Online account (see our page on Endnote Online here). The Endnote app will only access references that you have synced with your Online account.
