References can be added manually for documents that do not have an electronic record that can be directly exported to EndNote, e.g. government documents, web pages, print only sources.
Records are added using one of 45+ Reference Types, e.g. journal article, book, book section [chapter], conference paper, government document. Three additional Unused reference types are available so you can define your own.
Important points about references:
Data must be entered in the correct format to ensure that the resulting references accurately reflect the required style.
You can insert only one graphic or file in the Figure field, and the figure can be cited in Microsoft™ Word. However, multiple files can be added into the File Attachments field, e.g. draft MS Word documents, PDF files. All other fields can contain up to 64KB or approximately 16 pages of plain text.
If you begin to enter a name, journal or keyword that you have used before in that library, EndNote will complete the term for you to speed up data entry. To accept a term that EndNote has suggested, press Return/Enter, Tab or click in the next field. Author and Editor names, Journals, and Keywords that have not already been used in your library appear in red text.
EndNote uses term lists for the Author and Editor names, Journals, and Keywords. These lists are updated automatically as you enter new terms into these fields.
Family name, first name (or initial separated by a full stop, or space),
de Gaulle, Charles
Smythe, Alfred, Jr
Start each author on a separate line and enter all author names. EndNote will truncate the list of authors with "et al." or "and others" as required by the referencing style.
|anonymous||If the reference has no author, leave the Author field blank. Do not enter "anonymous". The style that you use to format the bibliography determines how anonymous references are treated.|
Add a comma at the end of the name, or two commas if the name normally includes a comma,
Australian Securities Commission,

Use sentence case- capitalise first letter, first letter of sub-titles and any proper nouns,

|volume, issue and page numbers||

Consistent entry of author names is important!
You could consider using the Research Notes field to store your own notes about a particular reference. Including details such as a direct quote (and associated page number) that might be relevant to the article or essay you are writing.
