EndNote 21 is here

Accelerate your research

EndNote 21 helps you save time, stay organized, collaborate with colleagues, and ultimately, get published. Focus on what matters most: your ideas. 


EndNote overview

Protect your references

EndNote 21 can recover your library from the cloud and get you back where you belong.

In EndNote 21, you can restore your library and library structure with its new data restoration function, ensuring your research is not lost. With single reference restoration you can also compare and restore previous versions of individual references.


Organize personal references

Tags are customizable labels that let you organize your references however you’d like. You can add tags to references and customize the color and name of the tags.

You can add multiple tags to a reference and anyone who you share your library with can view a tag, making tags a great way to quickly and intuitively organize your references.

Write faster

The Cite While You Write (CWYW) tool makes it easy to insert your EndNote references into Microsoft Word™, Apple Pages™ and Google Docs™.

CWYW automatically creates in-text citations and reference lists and easily changes the format of your in-text citations and reference lists.


Work from anywhere with EndNote Web

With EndNote you can access your research anytime, anywhere online. Move seamlessly between online and the desktop, as well as iPad applications in the cloud.

With the brand-new EndNote Web, available only to EndNote 21 customers for three years from activation date, you can securely sync your entire library including PDFs, notes, and annotations across all your devices.
