How do I access Endnote?


  • The University supports the latest version of EndNote, currently EndNote 20. The previous version X9 is available on all centrally managed PC labs. 
  • The University of Strathclyde has a site licence for EndNote and staff and students can download EndNote from Pegasus. All installations of the software must be removed or you must purchase a copy if you leave the university.

Which version of EndNote should I use?

EndNote online should meet the need of most students. Research students and staff may want to use EndNote desktop if they need additional functionality, such as the ability to create and customise bibliographic styles and to share libraries.

EndNote basic can be used after you graduate and is a limited online version. See the EndNote online guide for more information.
