The easy way to reference in your assignments without the use of post it notes and papers littered all over your desk is to use Endnote.
To use EndNote Web off campus you will need to sign up to Web of Knowledge for a personal account (also known as web of science) you can then use the same username and password for EndNote Web becuase it recognises Web of Knowledge personal accounts.
EndNote is a database for storing and retrieving references. You can use EndNote to save references, insert citations into word processed documents and automatically compile reference lists in any chosen format.
I think EndNote web offers a perfectly acceptable version of Endnote to use, but without the fee – currently £83 from Cardiff University! Or £55 from adept scientific for an immediate download.
We’ve been doing some on line demo’s on Endnote Web, so if you are still not convinced, come along to a demo and see live what it does and how easy it is to use.
The next dates for Endnote web demos are
Monday 7th Feb 1-2pm GMT
Thursday 10th Feb 9-10am GMT
To sign up email email@example.com
For more information See EndNote Web Guide
For an Endnote Tutorial go to: http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/insrv/educationandtraining/guides/endnote/index.html
See you there!

Endnote X4 is available for purchase but Cardiff University have decided not to sell it directly, instead we recommend that you purchase it directly at Adept Scientific.
From the Adept Scientific website register with your Cardiff University details for the special offers. There are various options available, the cheapest being immediate download.
As is previously the case, Endnote Web is free to use for Cardiff University staff and students and you can register for this version via Web of Knowledge.
