EndNote Online

  • Online counterpart of your desktop version
  • Provides a backup of your Desktop library (when sync is activated)
  • Use EndNote Online to synchronize your EndNote library between two computers (work, at home, etc.)

  • PDFs cannot be annotated or highlighted
  • Cannot run a search for full text PDFs
  • Does not support smart groups or group sets
  • Edit or add styles, filters and connections
  • Preview the citation for a record in a chosen style
