 EndNote helps you to collect, organise and share your references. There are 3 parts:

EndNote Desktop – powerful functionality for research and systematic review.

EndNote Online – a bit more basic but still great functionality when you are away from your desktop version.

Cite While You Write (CWYW) – an add-on tool for Microsoft Word for in-text citation and bibliography.
