What are output styles?
Output styles determine the appearance of references in a bibliography. The name of the style refers to the journal or publisher that has defined the format of the style they require. Styles can be modified and new styles can be created using EndNote's style editor.
Finding output styles
EndNote has over 4,500 output styles, around 500 of which are supplied with your software. If you haven't found the style you need, you can download the complete set or choose individual styles from the EndNote website.
- If you have trouble downloading a style, try a different browser.
- If you click on a style link and get gibberish on the screen, go back and try again, this time pressing the Shift key while clicking the style name.
- Mac users can download a style by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on the folder icon. Then click on Download Link to Disk in order to save the style into the EndNote styles folder.
- You must save the style files in the correct folder where your copy of EndNote has been installed. For Windows, this will usually be C:\ProgramFiles\EndNoteX7\Styles. For Macs, look in your Applications\EndNote X7\Styles folder.
- If you do not insert the style correctly you will not be able to access it when using EndNote.
- If you are a Mac user and wish to modify an EndNote style, you will first have to copy the folder of EndNote styles into your Documents folder and Edit your Preferences for your Folder Locations in EndNote.
