EndNote for Mac

Edit a reference list

  • Endnote's CWYW function simultaneously adds in-text citations and associated full references in an alphabetical list at the end of the document 
  • As with in-text citations, the CWYW field codes mean the list cannot be edited using Word

Change reference list layout

  • In Word, check the output style is set correctly in the EndNote X8 tab, e.g., APA 6th - AUT X8
  • Select Bibliography > Configure Bibliography

  • Add a title, change the point size or line spacing, etc.
  • Click OK

Create a standalone list

You can create a list of references directly from your EndNote library, rather than inserting in-text citations into a document. 

  • Open your library, check the toolbar is showing your preferred reference style
  • Hold down the <Cmd> key and select the references to include in your list (or Edit > Select All for the entire library)
  • Select Edit > Copy Formatted
  • Open a Word document, then select Edit > Paste (or use <Cmd>+V) to produce the standalone reference list

Note: This list does not have embedded field codes and can be edited as usual in Word.
