Library Support for RefWorks and transition to EndNote products in August 2021

The Library will be moving to EndNote citation management products on the September 2021 academic year.

Note for students with Laureate 
RefWorks will be supported on a legacy basis during the remainder of the partnership with Laureate, current students in the partnership who use RefWorks until the end of their scheduled studies should not be affected by these changes.

Students studying after August 2021
Any online students remaining in studies after August 2021 who still require access to their reference system will need to migrate their referencing data to EndNote Online.

Versions of EndNote available
EndNote is available in two formats via the Library:

  • EndNote Online – a Web based citation management platform similar to RefWorks, you can export citations directly from databases such as DISCOVER and Web of Science to your reference library. EndNote Online is recommended for online students, this is because your data is stored online, preventing loss of data and you can access your EndNote Online account from any Web connected location.

If you intend to begin using a citation management application for the first time, you are advised to register an account with EndNote Online, see advice on this platform on the Library for Online Programmes Referencing page.

  • EndNote Desktop – a desktop application available to install on a personal computer (for Windows or Macintosh systems) providing detailed reference management tools such as automated sorting and group features, EndNote Desktop is useful for medicine related programmes, e.g. managing large citation libraries when conducting systematic reviews or other complex tasks. EndNote Desktop can be a more demanding application for managing references for most programme areas, you are recommended to discuss your planned use of EndNote Desktop with the Librarian.

For detailed advice on EndNote products, creating an EndNote Online account and additional advice for students remaining in studies after August 2021 please see the Referencing page in the Library for Online Programmes

For any issues related to the above changes, please contact the Librarian by telephone, email or Skype.
