VSC262 Research Skills Guide: EndNote

Guide for VSC262 Veterinary Reproduction

What is EndNote?

EndNote is a bibliographic citation management program. It is used to manage your references, insert citations and create bibliographies when writing assignments, essays and research papers. Prior to using EndNote it is recommended that you understand referencing and know how the references should appear for APA 6th.

Please note:

EndNote automatically creates a bibliography for you at the end of your document however, if information has parsed into the wrong fields or if information is missing from a record then the bibliography will be incorrect and you could risk losing marks for referencing.

It would be a good idea to print out the APA referencing summary and always have the guide handy when you are completing an assignment. Read the basic principles and understand how to reference a book, a journal article and websites and webpages. Remember punctuation, italics, capital letters, spacing and bolded text are all important in referencing and must comply with the referencing style requirements.

Important EndNote information

  • EndNote libraries are made up of two parts: the .enl file and the .data folder.
    These two parts must be kept together in the same place on your computer. Both are needed for the library to work correctly
  • EndNote libraries should NEVER be stored in cloud-syncing folders such as Dropbox, OneDrive, SugarSync, etc. Syncing libraries with these services will corrupt EndNote libraries over time.
  • Always uninstall previous versions of EndNote before installing a new version
