We recently surveyed the King's community to find out which pieces of bibliographic software were in use, and the results are above. Your responses have really helped us decide how to design this guide, where you can find tuition and support for all the popular programs mentioned above.
Whichever software you decide to use, happy referencing!
There are a few ways you can find and use EndNote while you study or work at King's:
You can find an online course on EndNote desktop below, available via Clarivate's website:
The default time zone is Eastern U.S., so make sure to choose the correct zone to see the right courses. The webinars include EndNote for Windows and Mac OSX.
If you would like to link your Desktop Endnote Library to KCL databases so you can use the Find Full Text function, you need to select:
Edit > Preferences > Find Full Text
Mendeley Reference Manager, which replaces the Mendeley Desktop that is no longer supported, can be used as an online reference manager or can be downloaded free of charge from Mendeley's website, compatible with windows, Mac OS and Linux:
Please Note - Mendeley recommend you use a personal email (e.g. gmail) address to create a Mendeley desktop account. Institutional email addresses (e.g. @kcl.ac.uk) will not work for Mendeley desktop.
If you have used your institutional email address to create a Mendeley online account, you can change this to a personal email through the 'Settings & Privacy' options. Re-logging into Mendeley desktop with your personal email should then synchronise your data.
Some students have reported that Mendeley will only show the APA 7th referencing style, which is not currently in use at King's. Search Mendeley's Find a style tool for 'American Psychological' to locate APA 6th.
Zotero can be downloaded to your computer free of charge. Click the link below to get started with Zotero and exploring the range of plugins and apps you can add to your internet browser.
