Managing your references

A wide range of tools are now available to help researchers manage and organising their references. At Teesside University we use Refworks  and Endnote to manage your references.


Endnote is aimed at  postgraduate students and academic staff. The software for the desktop version can be downloaded onto your University device by emailing  ITDS with your PC asset number . It is also available on all University campus PCs via the Apps anywhere link.

If you are working away from the office, you can register for an EndNote web account  at

which will allow you to synchronise your documents between the online version of EndNote and the software version installed on your PC.  

There is also an iPad app available which is free to download.  Again, if you register for an EndNote web account you will be able to sync files between the iPad, online and desktop versions of EndNote.
