EndNote Introduction for Biological / Agricultural / Environmental Sciences Researchers
EndNote is a bibliographic management program which simplifies the process of generating bibliographies and reference lists. EndNote allows one to easily store, manage, and format references to any biological/agricultural/environmental science core style guide such as CSE, NLM, ACS, or APA or to any specific biological/agricultural/environmental journal style such as FASEB J, J Exp Biol, Plant Cell, J Agr Food Chem, or Front Ecol Environ. EndNote also helps you organize and easily retrieve publication PDFs.
This introductory class will cover: creating EndNote libraries; direct export of citations from biological/agricultural article databases; importing PDFs into EndNote; adding citations to your libraries; output styles; and Cite While You Write (using EndNote with Microsoft Word).
