EndNote is one of the most comprehensive research data management tools currently available. This tool will simplify the research process by providing you with functionality to find, share, store and create your research and references.

You can install the software on your laptop or desktop and then sync it to your tablet so that you have access to your EndNote library wherever you may be.

Important: the EndNote installation file must be stored on a local drive on your device, and not in one that is backed up to cloud storage. If your folders are backed up to cloud storage, please follow these instructions when installing the software.
