EndNote for Macs

OS Warning

If you are a Sierra OS user, you must use EndNote 8x. None of the earlier versions of EndNote are compatible.

Before you download EndNote

1) Check for compatibility. Click here to see what EndNote version works with your Mac operating system. You may also want to check for compatibility with your word processing program, if it's older.

2) Quit your word processing program AND the whole connected suite. In other words, quit Outlook, Excel, etc. Closing the window (clicking the red button) is not enough. Make sure you File>Quit.

3) Download the Firefox web browser. Chrome and Safari have trouble exporting database results to your EndNote program.

The first time you send database references to EndNote, you must designate the program to open files in Firefox . Follow the directions in the video.

  • Firefox does not have to be your default browser.
  • You do not need to remove other browsers.
