This guide provides tips for using EndNote Web, an online citation management tool. This page gives a brief outline for creating and using an EndNote account. You can use the tabs at the top of the guide to get more detailed information about using EndNote Web.
To make sure that EndNote Web knows you are affiliated with SCU, be sure register for an account while you are on campus. To register, do the following:
Note: If you have an account on ISI Web of Knowledge (Science Citation Index and Social Sciences Citation Index) for saving searches and getting email alerts, then you can use that account with EndNote Web.
On & Off Campus Access
After you have registered for an account from an on campus computer, you will be able to use EndNote Web anywhere you have Internet access (on or off campus) for three months. Once every three months, be sure to login to EndNote Web using an on campus computer. This tells the service that you are still affiliated with SCU.
Only free databases are available for searching via the Online Search feature. These databases include PubMed (biomedical journal articles) and library catalogs. If the database requires a password, use the Import option below.
You can import references directly into your EndNote Web account from databases on the Web of Knowledge platform.
You can organize your references into Groups. To create a new Group, click on the "Organize" tab. Then click on the New Group button. Then click on the My References tab to sort your saved references.
You can share Groups with other users, including users at other institutions. However, access to shared Group is read-only, so other users cannot modify a Group you share.
To share a Group:
You can create a formatted stand-alone bibliography with your references in EndNote Web.
After you log in to EndNote Web, there is a Help section that offers more information about all the features of EndNote Web. Look for the link in the top right portion of the screen.
Detailed help on using EndNote Web is available online while you are logged in.
The Getting Started Guide provides an introduction to the website. This can be found by clicking on the My References tab. A link to the guide is located on the right side of the screen.
Help documentation is also available. These documents can be found from any page within EndNote Web by clicking on the Help link located in the top right corner.
Tip: When using both Zotero and EndNote, use IE for EndNote, since Zotero is residing on your Firefox browser.
Download the Firefox plug-in for Zotero. Zotero is an open source (free) tool that lets you capture information about the screen. It is nice to use in addition to EndNote Web for databases that do not have an easy means to export (JSTOR and PubMed).
Once you have installed the Zotero plug-in, search a database and click on the icon at the right side of the address bar (see image). When this icon is available, Zotero will save the bibliographic information to your browser.
To get the Zotero information to EndNote Web:
