What is EndNote Basic?

EndNote Basic (also known as EndNote Online and EndNote Web) is a free, online citation managerment system. The five main features of EndNote Basic are:

  • Storing citations (either those you have imported from databases or manually input yourself)
  • Creating bibliographies
  • Creating in-text references
  • 2GB of online storage for saving articles
  • Group sharing of citations

Citations can be imported into EndNote Basic from most library databases. There is a high degree of integration with Web of Science databases. EndNote Basic also automatically shares relevant citations with existing Web of Science personal accounts, primarily between ResearcherID in Web of Science and My Publications in EndNote Basic. Web of Science integration, however, is only available when accessing EndNote from within the CMU network.
