Changing the default font for your bibliography

If you are using Word 2007:

  1. From the EndNote Web tab, click on the squared arrow in  the bottom right hand corner of the Bibliography box.
  2. Click on the Layout Tab
  3. In the top two boxes, choose the font and size you have formatted your main document with.

If you are using Word 2003:

  1. From the EndNote Web toolbar, click on the Format Bibliography icon.
  2. Click on the Layout Tab
  3. In the top two boxes, choose the font and size you have formatted your main document with.

Note: you can also enter a bibliography title at this stage that will appear at the start of your references. If you wish to do this later, see the blog entry Automatically adding a title to your bibliography.

Unformat Citations

If you want to temporarily remove the full listing of references from your document to make your own text clearer, you can use the Unformat Citations option to turn the references into temporary citations.

Changing your references into temporary citations

  1. Click on the Unformat Citation(s) option (the curved arrow in a square)
  2. The references should now be displayed in the following format {author name, year} with no reference list at the end of the document.
Note: This will just affect the document you are currently working on – not all documents you use with EndNote Web.

Changing your references back to formatted citations

  1. Click on the Format Bibliography button (the one with 1. 2. 3. written on it)
  2. Choose the reference style you want to use (e.g. Harvard) and click OK.
  3. This will convert your references back to the standard display.
This will just affect the current document, not any document you use with EndNote Web.

Turning off formatted citations for all EndNote Web documents
  1. Click on the Format Bibliography icon in EndNote Web (the icon labelled 1. 2. 3.)
  2. Click on the Instant Formatting tab.
  3. Click on the Turn Off button.
  4. Click OK.
To turn it back on again, repeat steps 1-3, but click Turn On.

Entering names of groups and Organisations

If you try and enter the name of an organization in the Author field, you may find it looks strange when you come to format your bibliography.

For example, typing World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as the author would  be displayed as W.W.W. (W3C) in your bibliography.

There's a very simple way to make it display correctly: simply add a comma at the end of the author. So, in the example above, type:

World Wide Web Consortium (W3C),

This fools EndNote Web into thinking that everything before the comma is the author's second name. As such, it will now display properly in your bibliography or reference list.

Using the Quick List to create a selective bibliography

It's possible to create a select stand-alone bibliography using just some references from your EndNote Web account, without having to format them in a Word document. Here's how to do it:

  1. From an individual Group (or folder), select the references you want to use by ticking them.
  2. Once you've chosen the references you want from that folder, click on the Copy to Quick List button.
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 for any other folders you want to use references from.
  4. When you've selected all the required references, click on the Format tab.
  5. From the References drop-down menu, select Quick List.
  6. Under the Bibliographic Style drop-down menu, select the required format for your references (e.g. Harvard, Vancouver).
  7. Under File Format, select RTF (Rich Text File).
  8. Click on either the Save, Email or Print button, depending what you want to do with your list.

Using EndNote with other word processors

Although the Cite While You Write plug-in only works with Microsoft Word, it is still possible to format your bibliography using a different word processor, such as Open Office.  To do this:

  1. Create your document as normal.
  2. When you wish to insert a reference, type {author's second name, Year} e.g. {Beardwell, 2007}.
  3. Save your document as a Rich Text Format (.RTF) file.
  4. Log in to EndNote Web and click the Format Tab and select Format Paper.
  5. Click on the Browse button and select the file you saved in step 3.
  6. Under Bibliographic Style, select the referencing style required (e.g. Harvard).
  7. Click the Format  button.
  8. You will then be given the option to either view or save your formatted document
