EndNote is a commercial software [for Windows and Mac] for managing references when writing projects, articles, and theses. It is produced by Thomson Reuters.
Kindly remember that the final output (in-text citations and list of references) depends on the data that you have entered into the EndNote software (or any other reference management software).
ALWAYS review entries (whether manual or downloaded from a database or other online service) for spelling errors, incomplete or incorrect data, or data entered into wrong fields or resource formats
After inserting your in-text citations and references, convert your paper/thesis to plain text and use a guide/handout to or the APA Publication Manual (or your citation/referencing style manual) in order to correct any errors.
EndNote 20 is a programme to manage a database of your references.
