About EndNote

EndNote is a citation manager which is used to manage bibliographies and references. With EndNote you can create formatted citations and bibliographies in a word processor. Users can sync their EndNote library with an online account and share it with collaborators.

How to get the software

The University of Iceland offers their students the EndNote software free of charge. Information on how to download and install the software is on the Division of IT webpage.


There are plenty of thorough instructions for EndNote in English.
We recommend Clarivate’s own LibGuide.
