This guide will help you become familiar with EndNote, a reference management tool.


EndNote is a commercial citation management program owned and operated by Clarivate, the same company that owns the database Web of Science.

EndNote basic is available for free, and only as a web-based library. EndNote basic comes with 2GB of storage. You can also choose to use the Cite While You Write Word plug-in for in-text citation editing.

The full, downloadable version of EndNote is available for a fee, but student rates are available.

Note: Stevens does not have an institutional subscription to this product, so you will have to create a personal account to use it.

EndNote basic & Web of Science

You can use Endnote basic with or without Web of Science but will have the ability to save items directly to Endnote while in Web of Science (if logged in). Please note that while you can continue to use EndNote basic after you leave Stevens, you will no longer have the integration with Web of Science.
