EndNote at the University of Stirling

EndNote is available for download by University Staff and Research Students on University desktop computers. From the Control Panel on your computer, choose Run Advertised Programmes (RAP) or at the Start menu search for Software Center and Select EndNote. If you do not have RAP or Software Center contact the Information Centre.

EndNote is also available to download in the Library and centrally supported computer labs. See the Install EndNote In a Student Lab guide.

The University’s EndNote licence does not allow installation on personal or non-university owned equipment. However, University staff and students may purchase a personal EndNote licence at a discounted price.

EndNote Desktop On University Computers (new users) - Staff Accounts Only

Staff and Research Students with University staff accounts can download EndNote Desktop from Run Advertised Programs.

Existing EndNote Desktop Users (including trial versions)

The current University licence is for EndNote X8.1.

If you wish to upgrade to EndNote X8.1 (from a trial version or earlier version) you must first:

  1. Backup all EndNote Libraries (click the Backup tab for more guidance)
  2. Uninstall any earlier or trial versions of EndNote that are on your computer.
  3. Download EndNote from Run Advertised Programmes or the Software Center.

Other 'University-owned' laptops and computers

This includes equipment purchased with research grants.

Most devices will have been set up with access to Run Advertised Programmes so the installation process is the same as for University Computers (see above).

If your laptop does not have Run Advertised Programmes but you think it qualifies under our licence for an EndNote installation, please contact the Information Centre for further guidance.
