Science - Physics: Mendeley Citation Manager

Migrating from Mendeley to EndNote 21?

University of Johannesburg is moving to a new Reference Manager: EndNote

EndNote is a Reference Management software package, used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays, reports, and articles.

If you are a current Mendeley user we can help you to migrate your references. UJ access to Mendeley will expire at the end of June 2024!

You need to have downloaded EndNote and set up your account! If not, see the Getting Started Tab.

The documents below offer step-by-step instructions on smoothly migrating your references or libraries from Mendeley.

Use the "A Beginners Guide to EndNote 21" to learn more or attend the UJ Library training sessions to learn how!
