What's new in EndNote 20?

Using EndNote

EndNote Desktop is available on campus where the Managed Windows Service (MWS) has been or can be installed. This would normally be in Teaching Centres and on computers provided in the Library. For help accessing EndNote please the EndNote Desktop Guide.

​It is possible to download EndNote Desktop onto your own PC or laptop. Download available from the IT Services software downloads service.

When installing EndNote Desktop on Microsoft Windows, you are recommended to right-click the install file and 'run as administrator', if you do not do this you may only see the 'trial' version after installing. 

Some users have reported downloading the trial version only, please see this guide to resolve this issue. If you are having problems downloading EndNote Desktop onto your laptop please contact the Service Desk.

Please see our bookable Endnote Desktop workshops available online using Microsoft Teams.
