Users who do not have EndNote desktop installed, and wish to insert citations and references into a Word document automatically using CWYW, need to download the Cite While You Write plug in.
This plugin allows you to automatically import references, one at a time, into your EndNote library while searching online databases.
BOTH plug-ins are available once you register for an account. Login to EndNote Online, go to the 'Options' tab and select 'Download installers'
