Download EndNote X7 via NIH-Wide License to Format Manuscripts Faster

The NIH Library has extended our enterprise-wide license for EndNote for another year - now through December 31, 2016. This license allows anyone directly associated with NIH to download and/or upgrade to the latest edition of EndNote (X7 or X8 when it is released in the Spring of 2016). This downloaded version will continue to function after December 31st but no new installations will be permitted and future updates will not be provided after that date.

What is EndNote X7?

EndNote version X7 is a reference management tool for finding, downloading, and organizing citations in a searchable database to make writing manuscripts and managing CVs easier: ​

  • Import references from online databases such as PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science
  • Create bibliographies and share with up to 14 colleagues, anywhere in the world
  • Synchronize citations, attachments, reference groups, and annotations between PC, Mac, web, and iPad (free, updated app for iPad coming soon)
  • Download, store, and organize article PDFs
  • Format and insert references in MS Word-based manuscripts using the top 6,000 journal reference format styles

Download EndNote X7

When you download the software, you will receive EndNote X7. Downloading requires NIH authentication and administrative rights to your NIH computer. After downloading, you may need to upgrade to the latest release.

The NIH Library strongly encourages everyone currently using EndNote to upgrade to this latest edition before December 31, 2016 to streamline support and training needs. Some staff have reported issues accessing their EndNote libraries after the update, so please backup your libraries prior to running the update.
