EndNote Basic

EndNote Basic is a web-based bibliographic-management program that allows you to easily collect and manage bibliographic data as well as PDF attachments, tables, images, etc. It will help you to correctly cite the literature references in text and to create a complete bibliography. The Paracelsus Medical University and the Salzburg University Hospital have access to EndNote Basic as a part of the license for the Web of Science database. Compared to EndNote Desktop, the range of function is more limited, but covers the needs of the students to a large extent. Unlike EndNote Desktop, it is web-based and therefore accessible from anywhere via the Internet. A major advantage of EndNote Basic is the possibility to work collaboratively. EndNote Desktop and Basic version can be used in parallel.

After the registration, you can access your EndNote Basic account from anywhere for one year. At the end of the one-year period, you will need to register once again in an authenticated session (on the campus network).

Cite While You Write
With the EndNote Basic plug-in, you can access the EndNote Basic database and automatically format citations and bibliographies as you write your work in Microsoft Word. You can download the plug-in from EndNote Basic under menu item "Options". After installing the Cite While You Write plug-in, the EndNote Basic toolbar is automatically integrated in Microsoft Word. For more detailed information, please refer to the Cite While You Write Help Pages of EndNote Basic.
