EndNote 20 is now available to Deakin staff and students – see the Latest Updates page for more information!


  • EndNote is a sophisticated bibliographic management software tool for researchers creating an extensive library of sources and citing the sources in publications and theses. If you are needing to cite a handful (e.g. less than 20) of different sources you might want to consider something like Microsoft Word’s in-built referencing tool. Whether you select EndNote or another referencing tool understanding the principles of referencing is essential for making the most of such tools. We recommend the Deakin Guide to Referencing as the first port of call.

  • EndNote advanced: Learn to use advanced features of EndNote such as how to edit a referencing style, merge Word documents containing EndNote references and recover a damaged library
