EndNote: Working with Word

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.

Top Tips

  • To add or remove information from in-text citations, or to delete an in-text citation from the document, always use Edit and Manage Citations.
  • Before cutting and pasting text within a document that contains formatted citations, click Convert to Unformatted Citations (in the Convert Citations and Bibliography menu). This will help avoid corruption of the document. To reformat the document, click Update Citations and Bibliography.
  • If you convert your document to plain text you will NOT be able to reformat the document using EndNote. Make sure you have saved a copy that will still link to the EndNote library.

Working with Word

EndNote and Word are able to work together to help you insert in-text citations and create reference lists/bibliographies in your documents.

  • For Windows : Word 2007 or later is required
  • For Macintosh: Word 2008 is required. If Word 2016 is installed it needs to be at least version 15.21 or later
