EndNote is software that will help you manage references collected during research. Citation formats (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) are included within the EndNote program. A literature search(Williams & Williams, 2006) is an information gathering process to find information for your research paper (an in-depth process for the dissertation literature search). EndNote and the literature search go hand in hand. In text citation –needs a bit of editing Williams, V., & Williams, B. (2006). Way of the Wiki: The Zen of Social Computing.
