EndNote Guide: EndNote and NVivo

EndNote is a reference organiser and writing solution. It is the ideal, time-saving software to enable users to collect references and then use this library to add citations to a Word document

EndNote and NVivo

NVivo can be used with EndNote. A Library (or references) can be exported from EndNote to NVivo.

Work with EndNote references in NVivo, to explore the literature:

  •     Example 1  Clarifying themes & finding gaps in the literature
  •     Example 2  Comparing your data with the literature
  •     Example 3  Comparing articles on the basis of word similarity

NB: At this stage the MAC version of NVivo doesn't offer this full functionality.

    Explore the literature (from your EN library) in NVivo
