Guidance on using EndNote software at the University of Adelaide

EndNote automatically includes thousands of referencing styles but you can add new and customised styles of your choice.

If a style is not in your EndNote 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 similar).

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 EndNote 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 EndNote 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.

You will need to save the new style on every computer where your EndNote program is installed. When you update to a later version of EndNote the Styles folder in the EndNote 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 EndNote.

At The University of Adelaide, the Adelaide Law School uses a legal referencing style called the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) (4th edition) developed by the Melbourne University Law Review.

For more information on referencing using AGLC4, see the Library guide to Referencing - Law (AGLC4).
