What are Styles?

EndNote and Styles

EndNote uses referencing styles which determine the mechanics of a particular style of referencing, by specifying which elements are needed (author, title, date, URL), in the order in which those elements appear, and the use of punctuation. EndNote does this for both in-text citations and the reference list or bibliography.

Most UWA courses use one of the following styles of referencing:

With the exception of AGLC, these styles are available through the Styles menu in the EndNote program. 

* For those studying law units, the AGLC style has been developed for use with EndNote. Further information about the style is available on the AGLC4 Guide. To download the style, go to the AGLC4 and EndNote tab.

** The EndNote style which best supports the Vancouver style (based on Citing Medicine) is the style within EndNote titled "Citing Medicine". Do not use the Vancouver style that comes with EndNote software. A UWA style has been developed and can be downloaded from the EndNote tab on the Vancouver (based on Citing Medicine) Guide.


What style should you use?

Check your unit outline or ask your unit coordinator. For more information on the various styles see the Referencing section of the Library Survival 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, including many of the styles in use at UWA. Some of the styles are available in different versions, UWA students should use these versions:

If you need another EndNote style (eg as required for publishing in a journal), it may be available either from the styles menu or available to download from the EndNote site. Once downloaded, you will need to save the style into the Styles folder within the EndNote program folder (Windows) or the EndNote application folder (Mac).
