The University's EndNote site license also includes access to EndNote online. It has less functionality than the desktop product, but it's free and web-based, so you can access your records from anywhere with an internet connection.
It is available to all University of Manchester students, faculty and staff and is accessible wherever there is Internet access.
In order to use EndNote online off campus, you must first register and login whilst using a computer connected to the University network.
Register for EndNote online with your university email address by going directly to the EndNote website or going to ISI Web of Knowledge database and clicking on the EndNote link in the menu bar. By registering via Web of Knowledge you will have access to a wider range of features which you can view on the Endnote website.
Please Note: To keep your EndNote online account active, you must login to it from a campus PC or you must log in to your Web of Knowledge account from off-campus at least once every 12 months.
Cite While you Write
In order to use the Cite While you Write function of EndNote online to insert citations and create a bibliography in Word you will need to install the Cite While you Write Plug-in. (If you are using a University pc cluster the plug-in is already installed)
The plug-in allows you to find and place citations from EndNote online directly into your word document eg. dissertation, coursework, project proposal.
Full instructions on installing the plug-in can be found here
