EndNote® is software to help you manage bibliographic citations along with associated pdf and other files, and create bibliographies in a variety of styles (e.g. APA, MLA, JAMA).
With EndNote® you can:
|Save citations||Organize citations into groups||Attach .pdf files|
|Enter citations||Add notes and keywords||Annotate pdfs|
|Select citation styles||Create bibliographies||Cite While You Write|
EndNote stands in between the places you find citations and your Word document.
It stores and lets you sort and organize your citations, and holds other descriptive information and files (such as pdfs) associated with those citations.
In your Word document, you can reach into EndNote and insert in-text references along with footnote or endnote references according to a wide variety of styles.
EndNote Web has many of the same features as the full version but it is simpler to use and is accessible via the web.
You can save records and pdfs in EndNote Web and sync them with your main EndNote library.
♦ EndNote isn't a substitute for knowing your style manual.
♦ It isn't magic: if references are entered incorrectly in EndNote, the citations generated will be flawed.
♦ Back up your EndNote library!

As you are aware, Microsoft released the version 16.9 update for Office 2016 yesterday (18 January):
Our Developers worked with the Microsoft Word for Mac team throughout the beta development cycle of Word 2016 version 16.9. We created a Beta release of EndNote X8.2 Mac for compatibility with that release from Microsoft while it was still a part of the Office Insider Update program. Now that Microsoft has released version 16.9 as a part of the production track, we have to conduct some final tests with this public release before we can release our EndNote X8.2 update. You will receive an alert when you start EndNote X8 once the update is ready. Our update is almost ready and will be released very shortly. We will also let you know once we have the exact date.
In the meantime, please see this article if you need a workaround to use EndNote with Word 2016:

If you have upgraded your system to Sierra, your EndNote X.7 will not work.
You must download EndNote X.8
You also need to have Word 15.25 or higher to use Cite While You Write.
