What is EndNote, and why should I use it?

EndNote is a software program that allows you to collect and organize all those citations you need when writing your manuscripts. (Other similar programs are Mendeley, Zotero, Reference Manager and Papers. EndNote is the only one that Mayo supports.)

You can import citations from a variety of different online bibliographic databases (PubMed, Ovid, CINAHL) or from publisher's websites. You can import citations from journal articles, book chapters, web pages, legal rules, etc.

It eliminates the arduous task of keying in all that information when you're formatting your bibliography in your word processing program (typically Microsoft Word).  Granted there is a learning curve to master EndNote, but you'll be glad you did!

EndNote at Mayo

Mayo Clinic has an institutional license to EndNote. If you are on the Mayo network, you can download it from the Mayo Dock on PCs or the Self Service tool on Macs. To install EndNote on your personal computer, visit the library's EndNote installation page.
