The Max Planck Society has purchased for their institutes a site license for EndNote of the company Clarivate Analytics.

All institutes listed on can download the software here:

EndNote X8 - Windows
EndNote X8 - MacOS

EndNote X9 - Windows
EndNote X9 (32-Bit) - MacOS
EndNote X9 (64-Bit) - MacOS (Catalina)

The ZIP files contain the MSI resp. DMG installation file and the license file. Both must be unpacked into a common folder. The installation can then be started.

If you can not access the download files, please contact the Software Licensing Group (MPDL),, and give them the IP addresses of which the download is to take place.
