EndNote Citation Tool

An introduction to EndNote 20 Desktop version and EndNote Online / Web (free version).

Using the Cite-While-You-Write (CWYW) plug-in


When an EndNote desktop program is installed on a computer, a plug-in called Cite-While-You-Write (CWYW) is automatically included. The plug-in allows you to insert selected references to work with Microsoft Word documents and create a bibliography according to a required style. Work with an active EndNote library to start inserting references on a document and find the EndNote tab within Word using the Insert Citation feature. Watch the video on Insert Citations using Cite-While-You-Write.
