Citation Managers: EndNote Web

Why Use EndNote Web?

 

EndNote Web is an Internet-based citation manager available as standalone version or as part of the EndNote Desktop. UW-Madison faculty, staff, and students do not need to purchase the EndNote Desktop version to use EndNote Web. Users can use EndNote Web to collect, organize, format, and insert (into Microsoft Word) references/citations from literature databases, webpages, etc. UW-Madison staff and students get 2GB of space on EndNote Web for the storage of pdfs as well as a maximum of 50,000 citations. The purchase of EndNote Desktop X7 expands a user's storage space on EndNote Web to unlimited and an unlimited number of citations. 

For differences between the EndNote Web and EndNote Desktop, see Endnote Basic versus EndNote Desktop chart
