This article is about software. For other uses of the word, please see Endnote (disambiguation).

EndNote is a commercial reference management software package, used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles. It is made by Thomson ISI ResearchSoft. The current version is 10 (EndNote X).


EndNote groups citations into "libraries" with the file extension *.enf or *.enl.

To add a reference to the library, the program presents the user a window with a drop-down menu to select the kind of reference (book, newspaper article, film, congressional legislation, etc.) and fields ranging from the general (author, title, year) to those specific to the kind of reference (ISBN number, reporter's name, running time, etc.) If the user fills out the necessary fields, EndNote can automatically format the citation into whatever format the user wishes from a list of over two thousand different styles.

However, the user is still expected to know something about the citation style he chooses. EndNote will not automatically abbreviate months (except March, June and July) as MLA expects even if MLA is the selected style.

Also, the program might not always detect redundancies. For example, if for a newspaper article you enter "2005" for the Year field and then "April 7, 2005" for the Date field EndNote might actually output the date as "April 7, 2005 2005"

For example, a citation for an edition of Gray's Anatomy in a few different styles:

Anthropos Gray, Henry
1910 Anatomy, descriptive and applied. Philadelphia: Lea & Febiger. [18th ed.]
APA 5th Gray, H. (1910). Anatomy, descriptive and applied (18th ed.). Philadelphia: Lea & Febiger.
MLA Gray, Henry. Anatomy, Descriptive and Applied. 18th ed. Philadelphia: Lea & Febiger, 1910.
New England J Medicine 1. Gray H. Anatomy, descriptive and applied. 18th ed. Philadelphia: Lea & Febiger; 1910.

Under Windows, EndNote saves a file with the *.enl or *.enf extension along with a folder containing various MySql files with *.myi and *.myd extensions. EndNote can add a menu item into Microsoft Word for "cite while you write."

EndNote can export citation libraries as plain text, Rich Text Format, HTML or XML.
