EndNote Guide: Choosing an output style

Additional Files

The Library provides some modified and additional Filters, Connection, and Styles files.

 Note that any zipped files need to be 'unzipped' i.e. right-click and choose the extract command. Copy these files to your EndNote file folder location.

If you just need the APA 7th style, note that this is not 'zipped'. Just save it into your styles folder.

Output Style?

“Output style” is the term EndNote uses to refer to the template file used to format the citations and bibliography correctly for your citation or referencing style. The output style controls what is in capitals, what is in bold or italics and determines the many other ways that references for journal articles, book chapters or other documents are formatted.

Explanations of styles used at the University of Canterbury are available at Citations and Referencing

To select the style you want in EndNote

  • Look at the right hand side of the screen to see the style selector.
  • In the case illustrated below APA 7th is the selected style 
  • Click on the drop down box to select another style

 

  • To browse all styles available, choose Select Another Style...
    • Click the column headings to sort by Name or Category, or click the Find-by button to see lists of styles by discipline area
      Select all styles
       

  • Click the Choose button to select a style from the list
     

Output styles in Word

Changing the output style in EndNote does not automatically change the style in Word.  Check the EndNote toolbar in Word to make sure the correct style is selected.
