Click on the headings below for tips and examples of how to create EndNote records that will produce accurate references in the APA 6th style.

                                                                  
  • The main contributors’ names are followed by a position descriptor in brackets, e.g. Scorcese, M. (Producer)
  • To produce an accurate reference from an EndNote record you must enter these names in your EndNote record in a very specific way:

- enter each contributor on a new line

- use the inverted format, i.e. family name followed by first initial

- add an extra comma after each contributor’s family name

- add the position descriptor in brackets after each name

- for example:
  Scorcese,, M. (Producer)
  Lonergan,, K. (Writer/Director)
