Target Audience

Early career researchers, especially those at the beginning of their careers (i.e. postgraduate research students).


You will need to have a computer username and password for the University network, plus access to the University's R-drive. (If you don't already have access, this can be requested via your doctoral supervisor. Alternatively, please bring along a USB flash drive).

You will need to have a general knowledge of referencing and referencing systems, for instance by consulting the following webpages

You can also watch the 25 minute video, EndNote on Windows: The Short Course.


This course is designed to introduce you to the basics of the EndNote for Windows software to create a library of references and to automatically build a bibliography/reference list in Word.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • recognise the value of using reference management software (RMS) to keep track of reading materials and to enable effective and consistent referencing

  • recall key characteristics and web locations of various open source RMS packages to enable independent exploration of their features/functionality and determine applicability for personal use

  • apply key functionality within EndNote to effectively save, organise and edit references and to access a range of referencing styles

  • produce accurate and consistent in-text citations and reference lists / bibliographies within acdemic writing by linking EndNote to a word processing package


The course builds on the information given in the 'Researcher Information Skills' course.

It introduces Endnote, a software package which is available to assist you in managing references, and will also look at Endnote Online, an alternative web-based version of the package. The course uses the Windows version of the software. If you are using a Mac, there is a Getting Started Guide (Mac).


This is a two hour course consisting of presentation, demonstrations and practical hands-on exercises.
