Writing Help - WSU Spokane: Writing Help & Citation Formats

Citation formats, EndNote bibliographic management, and where to find help.

Citation Management - EndNote basic (EndnoteWeb)

WSU members may use EndNote Basic (formerly EndNote Web) to collect, organize, and format references.  EndNote simplifies the process of formatting references in various citation styles. EndNote Basic is free but is limited compared to the full software program.

WSU Libraries Guide to EndNote - with some videos, useful instructions for EndNote X7 and Basic

EndNote Training Resources - Comprehensive library of Thomson-Reuters training videos.

Many databases, including all those hosted by EBSCO and Web of Science, offer direct export of references into EndNote, Basic and purchased.  Other databases require exporting or saving references in a file, and then importing the file into EndNote.

  Specific instructions for several of those follow:

PubMed           Cochrane Reviews            Google Scholar            JSTOR Articles                  

PsycInfo           WSU SearchIT catalog        WSU WorldCat catalog

Citation Management - Zotero, RefWorks, & Beyond
