Finding or editing styles

Finding additional EndNote styles

Installing individual styles

  1. Download the style you want to install.
  2. Double-click the style file.  It should open in EndNote.
  3. In EndNote, go to File > Save As
  4. Replace the word ‘copy’ with your style’s name and click Save.
  5. Click on File > Close Style.


Editing Styles

If an existing output style does not meet your publishing needs, you can edit an existing style (preferred option) or create a new style. You can change such things as the way the author is displayed, the order of references in a bibliography, or how references are punctuated.
