EndNote: Referencing styles

This software package for managing references (citations) is available free to Monash University students and staff. This guide has information about working with EndNote in the Monash University environment.

Referencing styles and Word

EndNote comes with many output style files for formatting citations in a specific bibliographic style. This page provides links to some amended styles used at Monash.

To download and use these styles:

  • Download the style file you wish to use
  • Double click on the file to open it in EndNote
  • From the File menu select “Save As…”
  • Save the style using an appropriate name
    Note: by default this style will save to the EndNote folder in your My Documents
  • From the File menu select Close Style
  • The new style can then be selected in your EndNote library using the pull-down style menu

See also EndNote X7 - Adding styles and filters after installation (pdf 293kb) for instructions on installing all the additional styles which come with EndNote.

Updated styles are also available from endnote.com

EndNote comes with the APA 6th referencing styles included.

For EndNote versions X3 and earlier please consult the advice provided in the EndNote Knowledge base at the following link for instructions:http://endnote.com/kb/109380

The APA 6th style may require customisation to cater for electronic journals that do not have a DOI. The instructions on how to do this can be found below.

Instructions for using abbreviated corporate author names in citations can also be found below.

This referencing style is based on the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (PDF 3.7MB), 3rd ed. 2010.

The style includes reference types for journal articles, books, etc, as well as legal reference types such as cases, statutes, treaties and loose-leaf services.

IMPORTANT:

To use this style you must download the RefType Table file and import it into your EndNote Preferences. Click the file name below to display the page. Use the browser's 'Save As' function to save the page to your computer. You must save it as an .xml file. In EndNote, click Edit, then Preferences, then Reference Types in the left pane. Then click the Import button in the right pane, locate the .xml file on your computer and click the Open button.

The Vancouver referencing style requires the use of abbreviated journal titles.  EndNote can enable this, however it is important that the preference for journal abbreviations (via the journal terms list in EndNote) is set prior to items being added to the library.  Instructions can be found in the document below.

Some lecturers may require the use of superscript when referencing in Vancouver. Instructions for setting this preference are in the document below.
