How to Download a New Citation Style into EndNote


This tutorial shows how to download
and use citation style for EndNote. EndNote offers five thousand different
citation styles and only the most popular are pre-loaded into the software. To cite in a style that is not included, you need to download it from the EndNote website. To get to EndNote’s pre-loaded styles, click on the drop down arrow next to
the style box and choose “Select Another Style.” You can search for your style. I want Brain, but it is not included in the pre-loaded styles so we’ll download it instead. Close this window, and go under the “Edit” menu. Find “Output Styles” and “Open Style
Manager.” Click “Get More on the Web.” The EndNote website will open in a browser window, and you can search for your style. Once you’ve found it, click on the “Download” button. If you have a PC, you can open the style directly into EndNote by leaving the “Open with” option checked, and clicking “OK.” The style opens in EndNote. Go under the “File” menu and ask to save it Give it a name, and click on “Save.” Then close the window. If you have a Mac, you will probably need to move the style into your EndNote style folder manually. Once you download the style to your desktop, open the “Finder,” then “Applications,” then “EndNote,” then the “Styles” folder. Drag the new style into that folder. Now that all the windows are closed and we are back to our library again, we can choose that new style for
our paper. Click on the drop down menu again, choose “Select Another Style,” and search for your style Highlight it, and click on “Choose.” Now the new style is available for you to use with Word. If you need additional assistance with EndNote, please contact an AU librarian through email.
