EndNote - How does it work?

EndNote Desktop

With EndNote Desktop your references are stored locally on your computer. You can sync your EndNote Desktop with EndNote Online to be able to access your references from another computer. If you are a student or staff at Malmo university you can download EndNote Desktop for free, see below for more information about how to download.


When installing EndNote Desktop you will also install a plug in for Word, which gives you access to the references in your EndNote Library, so that you can insert your references into your Word document. The plug in is called "Cite While You Write".

EndNote  Online

EndNote Online can be used alone or with your EndNote Desktop. If using both you can sync your EndNote desktop with EndNote Online, and you can then access your references by logging in to EndNote Online when using different computers. EndNote Online has many, but not all, functionality of EndNote Desktop, and is free to use.  If you have installed EndNote Desktop you can create an EndNote Online account in your EndNote Desktop, choose:

Edit->Preferences->Sync->Enable sync-> Creat a new EndNote account->Sign up 

If you only use EndNote Online you need to install the Word plug-in "Cite While You Write", which you can download fromyour  EndNote Online account.
