EndNote: Styles

What are Styles?

EndNote and Styles

EndNote calls referencing styles such as Harvard, APA and Vancouver Output Styles because this describes the style in which the EndNote software 'outputs' your references.

What style should you use?

Check with your Faculty, School, supervisor or lecturer if they have a preferred style. For more information on the various styles see the Referencing section of the Library Expert Help Guides page.

Information about the different Reference styles

When you download the EndNote program to your computer it comes with over 400 of the most popular output styles. However the Harvard, APA, Vancouver and some other major styles that come with EndNote install are not complete when citing online sources.

In coordination with UWA Faculties, Information Services has created customised UWA styles for highly used referencing styles like APA, Harvard and Vancouver.

These styles can be downloaded from the table below and saved to the Styles folder in your EndNote program. Styles for specific journals can be found either in your EndNote styles folder or can be downloaded from the EndNote site .

UWA Styles for Download

Style files convert EndNote references into any format or style required.

Make sure you download the style file into your Styles folder.  EndNote will automatically include the new style.
