Guidance on using EndNote software at the University of Adelaide

EndNote ships with thousands of styles and more are being added every day.

If a style is not in your EN program you can

  • search the Output Styles section of the EndNote website
  • check the UofA styles tab above
  • search the website of the journal whose style you need (usually in "Instructions for Authors" or simila

Installing Individual Styles

  1. Download the style you want to install.
  2. Double-click the style file.  It should open in EndNote.
  3. In EndNote, go to “File Menu” and choose “Save As”.  Replace the word “copy” with your style’s name and click “Save”.
  4. Click on “File Menu” and choose “Close Style”.

Styles Folder Location

The folder containing the styles that ship with EN is found in Program Files - EndNote - Styles.

When you download a new style you have the option to Save (this will save it into the Style folder in the EN program) OR Open - Save as (this will save it in a folder in Documents - EndNote - Styles). Now you can select this style from within your EN library.

N.B. You will need to save the new style on every computer where your EN program is installed. When you update to a later version of EN the Styles folder in the EN program will be overwritten so you will need to save any styles you have downloaded or customised and add these to the Styles folder in the new version of EN.

The University of Queensland has produced a comprehensive guide to referencing using this style both as a Footnote only and as a Footnote and Bibliography style. Both of these styles can also be downloaded from tthe University of Queensland website.

Check the correct guide for the version of EndNote that you are using and the correct version of the style to download.
