Reference management tools

Useful tools for managing your information sources and citations

When you are writing a paper or research assignment, you collect a lot of information. To keep things organised and automatically generate references in Word, you can use of EndNote. EndNote is bibliographic software with which you can build, maintain and use a reference list. It supports over 500 reference styles, including APA and MLA. Students and employees of RUAS can download EndNote for free here.


For optimal use, we recommend the following settings (at Edit ➡ Preferences...) :


  • At Find Full Text:
    • For "OpenURL Path" input:
    • For "URL" input:
  • At Sync: Click on the "Enable Sync" button and enter your EndNote Web login, or create a new account. In this way you can synchronise your EndNote library between various installations.

Installing the APA bibliographic style

After installing EndNote you probably need to download the "APA 6th Nederlandse editie"-style. This is the style that most educations require you to use. A download link and instructions can be found here on the EndNote website.

We have prepared a manual that shows you how to use EndNote in combination with various databases and our discovery tool.
