The Cite While You Write (CWYW) function allows you to insert references from your Endnote library into a Word document while you are writing. EndNote will build a bibliography/reference list for you as you insert citations. This list will appear at the end of the document. It will be sorted alphabetically by lead author surname.
Sometimes the author's names are part of your sentence and you need them to appear outside the brackets for the citation.
If you click on an EndNote citation in your document, you will see that it is highlighted in grey. This indicates that it has EndNote formatting and is directly linked to your EndNote library.
Sometimes you have directly quoted or paraphrased an idea that comes from more than one paper. You can use EndNote to insert multiple citations into the one set of brackets.
The citations will appear in your document in one set of brackets, e.g. (Aerts et al., 2011; Thurston et al., 2013; Garcia et al., 2014). All of the matching references will appear in the list at the end of your document
Separate page numbers can be added to each citation using the Edit Citation function.
When you are reviewing your work, you might find that you need to add more citations to an existing one, because you have discovered another source for that idea. You can edit the citation to add more.
You need to use the EndNote Edit & Manage Citations function for this. The page number is added to the end of the citation, so it is added as a suffix.
Legal sources such as Cases and Legislation use pinpoints, e.g. a section number, instead of page numbers to identify the location of the citation in the original text. You need to use the EndNote Edit & Manage Citations function for this. The pinpoint is added to the end of the citation, so it is added as a suffix.
Corporate authors such as companies, government departments and research institutes often have acronyms, e.g. the Australian Bureau of Statistics uses ABS. You can edit the in-text citation to use the acronym instead, but still have the full name appear in your reference list.
To modify a citation to display the acronym:
Never delete citations by using the delete or backspace keys. It can corrupt your document. You need to remove the formatting that links the citation in your document with the matching record in your EndNote library.
