EndNote is a reference management program. There are citation styles, called output styles in EndNote, to format your references according to the SLU Harvard style. On this page we have gathered information about the program, the output styles and how to use the program.

SLU has a campus license for EndNote and is installed on all campus computers. Contact IT-support at SLU to get the program installed on your own computer.  

EndNote features:

  • Good possibilities to organize your reference library by creating groups and customized fields for references and different publication types
  • Good support for output styles for different scientific journals and possibility to edit existing styles or create new ones
  • In Endnote you can search databases for new references and search for and add PDF:s to existing references
  • Has a built-in PDF reader

If you have EndNote installed on your computer, you need to synchronize your library to the web-based EndNote Online, in order to share your library with up to 99 colleagues. You can use the same login credentials that you have for Web of Science. Also, you can download references to EndNote Online on any computer and then synchronize to your EndNote desktop.

If you don't have EndNote desktop installed, you can still use EndNote Online (then called EndNote Basic), but with limited functionality. You have limited storage and limited access to output styles and cannot use the SLU Harvard-style.
