EndNote is a commercial reference management application, used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles. It is produced by Clarivate Analytics.

EndNote groups citations into "libraries" with the file extension *.enl and a corresponding *.data folder.

There are several ways to add a reference to a library: manually, or by exporting, importing, copying from another EndNote library, or connecting from EndNote. The program presents the user with a window containing a dropdown menu from which to select the type of reference they require (for example: journal, book, film, newspaper article, etc.), and fields ranging from the general (author, title, year) to those specific to the kind of reference (abstract, author, ISBN, running time, etc.)

EndNote Basic (formerly EndNote Web) is a web-based version of EndNote.
