We are changing to EndNote 21 

No need to panic! Yes, we are changing to EndNote 21, but the changes are minimal and hopefully helpful to you using EndNote. 

Data Restoration 

Take a deep breath. If the unthinkable happens, EndNote 21 can recover your library from the cloud and get you back where you belong. 

In EndNote 21, you can restore your library and library structure with our new data restoration function, ensuring your research is not lost. With single reference restoration you can also compare and restore previous versions of individual references.  

Stay Organised with Tags 

Tags are customisable labels that let you organise your references however you'd like. You can add tags to references and customise the colour and name of the tags. You can add multiple tags to a reference and anyone who you share your library with can view a tag, making tags a great way to quickly and intuitively organize your references. 

Cite While You Write (CWYW) for Google Docs 

CWYW will soon also be available to EndNote 21 customers in Google Docs™ via Google Workspace Marketplace, making it easier to write your next paper and to collaborate on documents with colleagues. 

EndNote Online upgrade is also part of update; however, we aren’t sure we if we are getting that part of the change yet. We’ll keep you updated. 

You can also watch EndNote’s short video about the updates. 

How to access EndNote 21 

The University supports the latest version of EndNote, currently EndNote 21, which is available in all clusters and on any University-owned machine. 

To update your EndNote 20 to EndNote 21 on your personal device, please submit a request via the NUIT Service System. On the Support Portal homepage, choose 'Request Something' then search for 'Endnote'. Select 'Request EndNote Personal Use' from the results and complete the request form. 

Staff can download EndNote 21 from the Software Center. 

*No conversion is needed, and your EndNote Library should open as normal in EndNote 21. Please contact the EndNote help team if having any difficulty:
