Welcome to EndNote x8

TPH staff can request EndNote software for work related projects. See Requesting EndNote Software.

This software allows you to:

  • import bibliographic citations,
  • organize groups of citations,
  • generate bibliographies in various citation styles like APA (Currently the preferred style for TPH)
  • export citations 
  • share groups of references with colleagues  

The Library suggests that EIDM trainees use Endnote to manage screening and citation for their rapid reviews.

Endnote provides a cloud based account for you (EndNote Online). It may be useful after you have become more familiar with Endnote Desktop.
