Description

EndNote for Medical Writers: A Word Witch Seminar for aspiring and intermediate users

EndNote is a database application for capturing, storing, displaying, and formatting bibliographic information in ways that are useful in the development of scientific content of many types. The objective of the seminar is to build familiarity with the basic functionality of EndNote and how that functionality fits into the medical writing workflow.

We will first tour the EndNote interface and explore the many ways the interface can be customized and simplified to suit the user’s purposes

We will then use an existing library to generate a reference list for inclusion in a Word document. The information presented will prepare the user to grasp the complexities of the advanced EndNote feature Cite While You Write. (CWYW itself is beyond the scope of this 1-hour seminar.)

We will then explore the on-line search functions through which a user builds a library. For documents typically of interest to medical writers, much of the bibliographic information can be downloaded from publicly accessible databases, such as PubMed and the Library of Congress.

Attendees who attain the learning goals of this seminar will be well placed to explore for themselves the advanced features of EndNote.
