Note that Journal Article is the default Reference Type.

Click on the arrow at the right of the Reference Type box to see the other reference types (e.g. Book, Conference Proceedings, Map, Web Page, etc.)

With Journal Article as the option in the Reference Type box, input the details for the article. Use the Tab key to go from one field to the next, or click in the next field with your mouse.

When you have finished typing the data for your reference, it should look something like this:

Close the reference by clicking on the X button in the top right-hand corner of the New Reference window. Closing also saves the reference.

 Output styles convert the data in your library into formatted  references. The output styles can only   format data correctly if the data is entered correctly.

 Important points to remember when entering data:

   - Each author must be entered on a separate line. (Use Enter button to start new line)

   - Corporate authors must be entered with a comma at the end, e.g. Queensland Health,

   - Just add the basic data, in the default EndNote font. The output style will change this to bold or   

      italics  (if necessary) and add extra text such as "vol." or "Ed." (if required by the style)

   - Fields such as Abstract, Notes, Research Notes are for your use

   - Use the URL field to link to an electronic version of the document on the web

   - Use the File Attachments field to add a PDF version of the document to your library

   - If you use abbreviated journal titles in your publications, you can set up a Journal Term list to store
