EndNote enables the application of different reference styles to format citations and the bibliography in a Word document. Reformatting a Word document for a different purpose is easy and quick.
Tip: Different reference styles can also be applied directly from this Style drop-down. If the required style is not available immediately it can be found by selecting the Select Another Style option.
University installations of Endnote should contain all the required citation styles. If you require additional styles, the ANU Online EndNote site contains a great number of them.
Other style files can be located from various sources, including the EndNote website. If possible, save the new style file to the appropriate Endnote directory in
C:\Program Files\EndNote\Styles (Windows)
By default EndNote should look to the correct folders when choosing style files. However, as this may have been changed on shared machines, it is worthwhile checking the location before you begin. Also, if you have made changes to Styles or saved them onto a disk or a shared drive, you may need to tell EndNote where to look for these files.To do this:
Reference styles in EndNote can be customised. It is advisable to refer to the relevant style manual in order to determine if any intended changes are permissible.
Never modify an original reference style in EndNote. If changes of a style are necessary, it is advisable to make these in a copy of the style. This is a backup strategy in the event of something going wrong and you need to revert to the original style.
To create a copy of a style
On the same dialog, you are able to change how your citations, bibliography and footnotes appear in your Word document, by selecting <Edit> to modify the style template. The EndNote style template now shows the record fields which are used to compose citations, bibliography and footnotes in that style in your Word document.
Select Citations > Templates, or Bibliography > Templates, or Footnotes > Templates as required and place the insertion point where changes are to be made.
Other options are available from the ‘Field Substitutions’, ‘Layout’, ‘Sort Order’, etc. menu.
For more information, specifically on how to use Forced Separation and Link Adjacent Text markers, refer to these instructions.
The fields for reference types not shown can be compiled, as follows.
When using Cite While You Write tools in Word, it is possible to add page numbers to in-text citations from the Edit & Manage Citation(s) dialog, as in these examples: (Harris, 1998:56) or (Harris, 1998, p. 56). Depending on the reference style used, it may be necessary to modify the style to enable this, as follows.
From the Edit menu in EndNote
Under Bibliography > Sort Order you can change the sort order of your bibliography. This is especially useful if you need to create a complex bibliography.
Under Bibliography > Title Capitalization you are able to apply settings to leave capitalization as it has been added to the record, or to have it determined by the style settings.
