Protect your work with data restoration function

Take a deep breath. If the unthinkable happens, EndNote 21 can recover your library from the cloud and get you back where you belong.

In EndNote 21, you can restore your library and library structure with our new data restoration function, ensuring your research is not lost. With single reference restoration you can also compare and restore previous versions of individual references.

Stay organized with tags

Tags are customizable labels that let you organize your references however you'd like. You can add tags to references and customize the color and name of the tags.

You can add multiple tags to a reference and anyone who you share your library with can view a tag, making tags a great way to quickly and intuitively organize your references.

Cite While You Write in Google Docs

Our Cite While You Write (CWYW) tool, makes it easy to insert your EndNote references in a Microsoft Word or Apple Pages document. CWYW automatically creates in-text citations and reference lists and easily change the format of your in-text citations and reference lists.

With EndNote 21 we are expanding CWYW to be compatible with Google Docs, making it easier to write your next paper and to collaborate on documents with colleagues.
