Using Cite While You Write with EndNote 21

EndNote 21 includes the Cite While You Write tool, which allows you to insert formatted in-text citations from your EndNote library directly into any Word document you create, using the referencing style of your choice. It will also automatically create a bibliography at the end of your document.

The quick reference guides below demonstrate how to insert a citation from your EndNote library while staying in your Microsoft Word document (for Windows and macOS).

You can also switch back to your EndNote 21 library and select multiple references to insert into your Microsoft Word document. The quick reference guides below demonstrate how (for Windows and macOS).

You may need to customise specific citations in your Word document to meet referencing guidelines. The Cite While You Write feature in EndNote 21 allows you to edit and make changes to individual citations as required.
