Citations in your document will appear in two parts: in-text citation in the body of the document and the reference list located at the end of the document, which gives full bibliographic details for the in-text citation. The way these two parts appear in the document is defined as a referencing output style.
Each faculty, journal, lecturer, book publisher etc. may require material to be presented using their preferred style. EndNote makes it very easy to do this - either at the time of writing or at any stage of your draft.
As you add references to your library, you are able to view, preview and change your styles to accord to referencing conventions.
There are two ways to change the referencing style in EndNote: by using the drop down menu in the toolbar, or by using the Edit menu.
Using the drop-down menu
Using the Edit menu
There are two ways to create a bibliography of your selected references as a text file:
3. Name your file and select file type .rtf (Rich Text Format) from Export file name dialog box
4. Select bibliographic Output style then click Save
5. The file opens as an .rtf in Word and can be edited and saved as a Word document
N.B. an example for creating a bibliography of references from EndNote library for LaTeX has been provided in the box Create a .bib file.
Thousands of referencing styles (output styles) are available in EndNote. You can add more referencing styles in addition to the popular styles that are included by default in EndNote. Referencing styles can be downloaded from the EndNote - Output Styles page. Any referencing styles downloaded from this page must be saved into your EndNote Styles folder on your computer:
The referencing styles most commonly used at Deakin University are APA 6th (American Psychological Association, 6th edition), Harvard, Oxford, Vancouver and Deakin-clin-exp-optometry style.
