    General Information
  • 5. What are EndNote Styles?
    • Rules which you apply to items in your EndNote database in order to control the way they will print.
    • Each entry in your EndNote library is broken up into various parts, known as fields (e.g. Author, Year, Title, Volume).
    • EndNote applies the current output style to these fields: for example by putting all titles into italic font or printing all volume numbers in bold .
    • You can set up more complicated rules: for example saying that first author names are laid out as Surname, Forename but second, third etc. as Forename Surname
  • 6. Consistency
    • Provided you are consistent about the library content, EndNote will apply the current output format and produce printed references which always follow the rules you have selected.
    • If you are not consistent, EndNote may not know how rules ought to be applied: for example, if the volume field sometimes contains the issue number as well, that will be printed in bold if the rule is that the contents of “Volume” are emboldened .
  • 7. Setting up EndNote
    • When you are using EndNote on a University shared machine you cannot make changes to the master copies of the EndNote styles which are held on the central fileserver.
    • This is why the first exercise shows you how to create a personal styles folder to contain the output formats which you are going to modify.
    • On your own machine this is unnecessary (although it’s good practice only to make changes to copies of your existing files in case you make a mistake).
    • The most recent versions of EndNote for Windows will automatically create your Styles folder (and also Filters and Connections) in My Documents rather than inside the EndNote Program folder.
  • 8. Check with your supervisor!
    • If your discipline requires very complicated rules for reference layout it may be tricky (occasionally impossible) to set them up in EndNote.
    • ALWAYS produce a small sample and show it to your supervisor, publisher etc. for approval before doing a large amount of work.
    • Don't leave this until the week before you are due to submit your work!
  • 9. BACKUPS!
    • Styles can take a long time to create, so you need to back them up, just like any other valuable work files..
    • Each style is a small file stored inside the Styles folder and can be backed up to a memory stick or other media using copy/paste or drag and drop.
    • You will need to back up and replace any Styles which you have edited whenever you upgrade your copy of EndNote otherwise they may be over-written when the new Styles folder is installed.
  • 10. Here to help
    • If you need help with troubleshooting styles:
    • email: ll-support@ucs.cam.ac.uk
  • 11. Conventions used for the course
    • In the course notes, the symbol “>” is used to represent the selection of a sub-menu or option. For example:
      • Start > PWF Programs > Word and Text Processing > EndNote
      • means you should go to the computer’s Start menu and select in succession the options “ PWF Programs ” “ Word and Text Processing ” and finally the EndNote program icon.
  • 12. This course covers
      • Locating your Styles folder and viewing the enclosed files.
      • Learning how to build up a layout for an extra document type within an existing style
      • Saving an existing style with a new name and modifying the way it controls reference printing.
      • Control of references in footnotes.
      • The “Cited Pages” option.
      • Changing the way the style controls printing of ranges of pages and lists of author names.
