EndNote is a software application that automatically generates citations and bibliographic references. When combined with MS Word, it allows the user to insert citations while creating a document (articles, theses, books, reports), and, at the end of the document, the list of bibliographic references is automatically created according to the selected style.

It’s a software compatible with Windows and Macintosh.

EndNote is available in Desktop and Online versions, which can be used together or independently.

For more information, see our thematic guide on using EndNote:
Creating Bibliographies: Tools for Citing and Organizing References

Installation on personal computers

A copy of the software, for Windows and MAC, is placed on the server

Integration with MS Word

After installing EndNote, integration with MS Word is automatic, and a new tab appears on MS Word, called EndNote X9.

If this does not happen, please do the following:

  • File > Options > Add-ins
  • Select EndNote (CWYW Citation Recognizer) and press GO
  • Tick ​​EndNote Cite While You Write and press OK.


The EndNote X9 tab will appear in your menu bar.

If you use an earlier version of MS Word, you can consult EndNote FAQs.
