EndNote

EndNote is a particular brand of content management software. It allows people to store bibliographic references in files that are referred to as libraries. Endnote can be used on Windows and Macintosh computers.

What is an output style?

An output style is a referencing style. EndNote output style files have rules and templates that set out how the in-text citations and bibliography will appear in your document.

There are a number of styles available with the installation of EndNote. The name of the style refers to the journal or publisher that has defined the bibliographic format.

Output styles can be modified and new styles can be created using EndNote's style editor.

CQUniversity's approved referencing styles are:

  • American Psychological Association (APA)
  • Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) 3rd edition
  • Harvard style at CQUniversity
  • Turabian
  • Vancouver

Free copies of the referencing styles are on the CQUniversity referencing guides page.
