This guide covers everything you need to know about getting started with EndNote.

Editing Styles

Editing a Style

Sometimes, a standard referencing style may not display the information you need for your resource, or EndNote may not have an appropriate source type for the sort of resource you are trying to cite. In this case, you can edit a style in EndNote to make your citations display in the way you want them to.

To edit a style:

  1. Select the Tools menu in EndNote
  2. Click on Output styles
  3. Click on Open Style manager
  4. This will open a dialogue box that shows all of the styles available in EndNote. Select the style you wish to edit and click the edit button
  5. Another dialogue box will appear where you can see the information about the style. By clicking on Citation > templates or Bibliography > templates you can edit the way in which certain types of citation appear in the intext, footnote or bibliography by changing the order the information appears, or adding or removing elements.


Adding a style

In some cases, you may need to use a specific style set by a journal, or a style that is not included in EndNote's collection. You can download extra styles from online, either from the journal website or from other sources.

To add a style:

  1. Download the file and click Save as.
  2. Windows has security measures that prohibit the direct saving of a file into the C:Program Files folder structure from a third party application, such as your browser. Similar restrictions may be in operation on OSX, depending on how your computer is set up. The best way to save one of these amended style types is to first save it to the desktop and copy it into your EndNote style folder in your EndNote program directory (usually located in Windows—C:Program FilesEndNoteStyles or Mac OS X— Harddrive:Applications:EndNote:Styles).
  3. Navigate to Tools > Output styles > Open style manager
  4. Find your new style and click the tickbox next to it to add it to your favourites.

Choose SAVE AS when attempting to save these files.

Looking for a specific style file? Try the following links:

ASABE (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers)


Note: ASABE uses abbreviations for journal titles which requires the user to downlaod the term lists from Endnote website before they will display. You will need to check your bibliography to ensure the correct abbreviation is displaying.


Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics


Note: AJARE uses headline style capitalization for book titles. EndNote is unable to apply headline style capitalization to just Book titles. Change book titles manually in your EndNote library to ensure references are formatted correctly.
