You will be asked for your UC login.

For PC users:

To install EndNote 20, double click on the EndNote20.exe file downloaded from the above link.  Extract this file file onto your desktop by clicking on the the three ... and selecting your Desktop.  This will create two new files, EN20Inst.msi and License.dat. Double click on EN20Inst.msi to start the install. The license.dat file must be present in the same folder.

Additional Files

The Library provides some modified and additional Filters and Styles.

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.

Journal Abbreviations

Instead of installing long lists of journal abbreviations you can edit your own journal entries by using the Term Lists functions

Check how your journals are displayed in a Word document

  • If you want them to be abbreviated
  • Go to your EndNote library
  • Library | Open Term Lists | highlight the journal you wish to edit
  • Edit Term | Edit journal
  • Continue to change other journals individually if necessary 


You will still need to use a Style that is designed to include journal abbreviations. Ask your Subject Librarian if you have any problems
