EndNote Web is a Web-based service designed to help students and researchers collect, store, organise and manage references, and to output them as reference lists or bibliographies. It is particularly suitable for undergraduates and taught postgraduates, though can also be used in conjunction with EndNote (desktop) for research students and academics. Transfer of records between EndNote Web and EndNote (desktop) is very straightforward.
Our site license to Web of Knowledge gives all University of Bristol staff and students free access to EndNote Web. Create an account by clicking on the My EndNote Web tab within Web of Knowledge, or by following the link to www.myendnoteweb.com. Once registered you can login to the service, and begin saving new references into your EndNote Web account.
Roaming access will allow you to use it from any computer, but you must login via a University computer, or via Web of Knowledge, at least once every 12 months to authenticate your status as a University of Bristol student or staff member. Full details can be found within EndNote Web under Options > Account Information.
EndNote Web communicates with Microsoft Word, enabling you to format Word documents, producing bibliographies and adding references within the text. You will require a plug-in to be installed on the computer you are using. All University computers should already have the plug-in installed, and an EndNote toolbar will be visible when you open Word. You can download the plug-in from within Endnote Web for use on your own computer. To change the toolbar tab from Endnote to EndnoteWeb simply right click on the tab, choose Preferences, then Application, and change the tab title to Endnote Web.
EndNote Web 3.0 was launched in November 2010. It can be used with Word 2010 (32 bit version). The current version is Endnote Web 3.5. If you experience any problems please try reinstalling your browser and the CWYW plug-in as a first option.
Macs - problems have been reported using CWYW with Mac OS 10.8.2. Thomson Reuters is suggesting you either log out and back into Mac or follow the steps on the following Knowledge Base article:
