EndNote: Referencing styles

Manage references and citations in your writing and research

JCU Referencing libguide

In order to reference correctly, you need to know exactly what the reference you want to put in your bibliography describes.  Book chapter? Webpage? Government report?

When you use EndNote or EndNote Web, you have to know when the EndNote reference has fulfilled the style requirement for that information - or not!

The libguide linked here gives assistance with referencing all types of material in APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, Vancouver and other styles.

Downloading Styles

When you download a style from UQ or EndNote's home page (or anywhere else), you need to save it in the Styles folder within the EndNote programme.

For a Windows PC you will find the folder here:

System C: > Program Files (x86) > EndNote X8 > Styles

For a Mac, you will find it here:

Finder > Applications > EndNote X8 > Styles

After you have saved the file, you will be able to find the style in the Select Another Style list in EndNote and Word.

Adding EndNote files to your computer

In order to download a file to use in EndNote, you must open the file in the EndNote program and allow EndNote to save it to the directory it creates for that file.  If you allow EndNote to do this, the files you download:  Filters, Connections or Styles, will appear in the appropriate Manager.
