Reference management tools

Useful tools for managing your information sources and citations

When you are writing a paper or research assignment, you collect a lot of information. To keep things organised and automatically generate references in Word, you can make use of EndNote.

What is EndNote?

EndNote is bibliographic software with which you can build, maintain and use a reference list. It supports over 500 reference styles, including APA and MLA. Students and employees of RUAS can download EndNote for free here. Apart from EndNote, we also offer RefWorks, which doesn't require installation.


On campus

EndNote is available on Rotterdam University workstations by means of the Startmenu ➡ Liquit ➡ EndNote X9.

At home

To install EndNote on your own device, download one of the following installation files (requires login).

Download EndNote for Windows  Download EndNote for macOS

Take note: The Windows version requires you to unpack all installation files and then start "ENX9Inst.msi". If you don't, EndNote will ask for a product key and installation will fail.


For optimal use, we recommend the following settings (at Edit ➡ Preferences...) :


  • At Find Full Text:
