The reference management software Endnote, is designed specifically for researchers and academics to streamline the process of collecting, organizing, and citing sources. Endnote is part of Clarivate Analytics' portfolio, the same company that is also behind the Web of Science. So, it is not surprising that this database is intimately linked to Endnote. While not overly complex, EndNote has a user interface that may require some initial learning compared to simpler (free) options.
