IN-COMPANY TRAINING:

WORKING WITH ENDNOTE / REFERENCE MANAGER

OVERVIEW

EndNote/Reference Manager is used to store and recover scientific information. The program is able to make a direct connection with external databases in order to import relevant information after a query. The collected data, which is stored in a database, can be used afterwards to cite and generate bibliographic lists within Microsoft Word. This training is meant for everyone who is doing research, publishes scientific articles, or wants to use the options of EndNote/Reference Manager in a professional way. The in-company training lasts a day. If desired we can also limit the in-company training to half a day.

CONTENTS

The training will cover the following topics:

  • Creating a bibliographic database
  • Manual entry of data
  • Importing data from an online database (Direct Export / Use of import filter)
  • Internet search (ISI Web of Science, PubMed, Z39.50 hosts)
  • Working with databases (selecting, sorting, navigating, searching)
  • Managing databases (add, replace, move, copy, delete)
  • Printing of bibliography / Subject bibliography
  • Output Styles
  • Cite in Word documents (Cite While You Write)

Of course there will be time to discuss specific situations and individual questions. In case you prefer the short in-company training, we will discuss the contents of the training with you.

TARGET AUDIENCE

The training is meant for staff members who collect data, and who want to set up their own, or a shared, database with relevant and up to date information, as well as for researchers who write and publish reports and papers. In short, for everybody who is interested in collecting, storing and publishing scientific information.

NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS

The number of people participating in the training is limited to 15 per training. This way we can guarantee optimum support and guidance.
