Referencing styles

There are many different referencing styles available to use within EndNote to format in-text citations, bibliographies, and reference lists. Referencing styles within the EndNote program are referred to as Output Styles.

Key styles which are not included in the EndNote program and need to be downloaded and installed into EndNote are listed in the table below.

Download Information and Guides

UWA (University of Western Australia) has a modified AGLC 4 Endnote Style that you can download into EndNote. Please see their webpage for instructions and link to download the style.

UTS Library, University of Technology Sydney, has an excellent help guide: 'Using EndNote: With the Australian Guide to Legal Citations (AGLC), 4th Edition'

There are more styles are available for download from the EndNote website.

Installing a new output style to EndNote

  • Download the style you want to install.
  • Double click the style file.  It should open in EndNote.
  • In EndNote, go to “File Menu” and choose “Save As”.  Replace the word “copy” with your style’s name and click “Save”.
  • Click on “File Menu” and choose “Close Style”

Library referencing guides

It is a good idea to check the formatting of your references against the appropriate referencing style guide, as reference data imported into EndNote is seldom 100% correct.

If you need to make adjustments to a reference, make the updates within EndNote:

  • Double click on the reference to open it in an editable form.
  • Make the edits.
  • Save the reference.

To update your Word document with the amended reference:

  • Open the EndNote 21 tab.
  • Click Update Citations and Bibliography.
