EndNote 20

Formatting Citations & Page Numbers

Excluding an Author or Year

To exclude the name of an Author or the Year of Publication from an in-text citation, right-click on the citation and select Edit Citation from the dropdown. This will allow you to make basic changes to the format of your citation, such as excluding the author or switching to an author-prominent format.

To insert a page number, right-click on the citation, select Edit Citation, and click the More option. Type your page numbers into the page number box. Do not include pp or pg in this field as EndNote will automatically format your page numbers according to your chosen style. 

Important: If the page number does not appear in the citation, add it to the Suffix box instead. Some styles do not have page numbers included in their format. Using the suffix will skirt the problem.

Unformatting citations

Your existing references in Microsoft Word can be manually unformatted by using the Convert to Unformatted Citations command under the Convert Citations and Bibliography drop-down of the EndNote 20 tab in Microsoft Word. The appearance of your citations will change. You will only need to do this if you are having issues with your EndNote Library or if you need to combine documents. Afterwards, select Update Citations and Bibliography.
