Endnote is a software program, free to QUT staff & students, which enables you to create your own database of records - records of books, journal articles or websites. This makes it easier to search through materials and automate citing.
The 'Find Full Text' functionality locates full-text PDFs and attaches them to existing references in your EndNote library. To enable this functionality configure EndNote as shown below. The accuracy of Find Full Text depends on:
EndNote gives users the ability to share their library with up to 14 other EndNote X7 users.
The usual practice of copying reasonable portions of text and attaching full text documents to your references is allowed under copyright law because it is a fair dealing for the purpose of study or research.
The situation changes if you share your library with others. It may be a breach of copyright or database licence terms to share anything more than bibliographic information. If sharing, share a version that does not include attachments.
When working with MS Word and EndNote on your thesis or other long document (over 80 pages) we recommend you use a separate Word file for each chapter. A reference list will be produced at the end of each chapter. Once the document is finalised the chapters need to be combined together to create one document with one reference list at the end.
Unwanted initials in an author-date style in-text citation are a common problem in documents, and simply fixing the author name in the reference doesn't always work.
EndNote is correctly conforming to the APA 6th manual to use initials in the in-text reference if there is more than one author with the same last name in your document. However, sometimes the initials are there when you don't have different authors with the same last names - so they need to be removed. Unwanted author initials can come from the author's name being inconsistently entered in different references in your EndNote library, e.g.:
Different references by the same author with a different form of their name will trick EndNote into thinking that they are different authors, so you need to make them all the same using the following steps
Cite This For Me is one of the most popular citation tools today. Launched in October 2010, they began with the mission of helping students create perfect citations in a fraction of the time. Since then, Cite This For Me has assisted millions of users across the world including in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, and beyond.
Cite this for me will do most of the work in building your references, but you may still have some fields to fill in. Luckily, it tells you which fields it still needs to make it a complete reference.
While it says it is using a particular style (e.g. APA 6th) it may be different from what's in Cite|Write. Check with your tutor/lecturer if they have a preference.
