It provides Unicode support for foreign languages for processing and displaying multilingual text. In addition, EndNote provides a high level of customizability, both for the EndNote interface and for your references and reports. All these features make your research and writing process more efficient.
EndNote is available as a desktop client or as EndNote Online.
The desktop client is available in both Windows and Macintosh editions. Current Tufts' students, faculty, researchers, and staff can arrange for an EndNote installation on their own personal computers by Tufts Technology Services (the installation must be removed if your Tufts affiliation ends).
