EndNote Online




How to get started
Word Plugin
FAO citation style
Importing records from the FAO Library catalog


EndNote Online is a Web-based reference organizer and writing solution for FAO employees. It is accessible through the Web of Science (WOS) menu and helps you collect and keep track of your references and easily insert them into your research documents as in-text and endnote citations in, among others, the FAO citation style.



From FAO headquarters

1. Create an account for the Web of Science and subsequently one for EndNote (accessible from the WOS top menu). Once you have created an account you may access both resources from any non FAO computer for the duration of 6 months.
2. The first time you sign in to your EndNote account, you will see the Getting Started Guide, which offers links to help you collect, organize, and format your references.


From the field

1. Login to the Secure Access Gateway
2. Paste the url of the WOS - https://apps.webofknowledge.com - in the browse box.
3. Register for the WOS and subsequently for EndNote. Once you are registered, you will be able to access the WOS with your credentials from any, i.e. non FAO, computer for 6 months.



Cite While you Write for Word

Download the Cite While You Write plug-in to insert references, and format citations and bibliographies automatically - in FAO Style - while you write your papers in Word.
Go to the FAO CIO application catalog and download the "EndNote plugin".
Once you have installed the Word plugin, an EndNote tab appears in your Word menu. By clicking on "Insert citations", you may browse your Endnote lists and insert in-text and endnotes automatically in your document.

Searching your Endnote bibliographic lists.


When you click on "Insert", the citation is automatically inserted in FAO Style as in-text and endnote. You may manually edit the citations if necessary. 


FAO uses a customization of the Harvard citation style. As well the Harvard as the FAO citation style are available through EndNote, as well as many others. Please note that the FAO style is a test version, it might contain some errors (which can be edited manually inside Word). If you encounter any issues with it, please let us know at [email protected].



Apart from saving your WOS results in EndNote, you can also search other bibliographic databases and catalogs and add their records to your EndNote lists/libraries. In order to do so, go to "Collect" in the EndNote menu and click on "Online search". Select the catalog you are interested in from the dropdown list, e.g. FAO Library, and connect EndNote to the selected resource. At that point you are able to search the catalog and import and edit records into EndNote.

Step 3. At this point you can add the selected record(s) to one of your EndNote lists.

If you click on the record, you can add/edit the bibliographic fields before you save it to your EndNote library.
