EndNote: Home


MacOS Big Sur 

The MacOS Big Sur and Macs with Apple M1 chips are not compatible with EndNote X9. It is recommended you upgrade to EndNote 20.

The Library will fully transition to supporting EndNote 20 from the start of 2022.

EndNote is a database tool, produced by Clarivate Analytics, that:

  • stores bibliographic details of the material that you have read for your assignments and theses
  • imports details of material that you have found, in the library catalogue and other databases and catalogues
  • automatically creates citations, references and bibliographies for your assignments in your required style
  • support and/or integrates with common word processor and file formats eg RTF, HTML, etc.

Monash staff and students can download version X9 of the EndNote software from the Obtain EndNote page in this guide.

EndNote Online is the web-based version of EndNote. EndNote Online has similar, but more restricted, functionality than the standard (desktop) version. EndNote Online can extend EndNote desktop functionality to provide:

  • access to EndNote libraries from anywhere
  • synchronization of EndNote desktop libraries to enable working between computers
  • sharing of libraries with other researchers.

Refer to the EndNote online page in this guide for further details.
