EndNote 21:  Reference styles

Manage your references and create in-text citations and reference list

Choose an output style

Select a Reference (output) Style

Output styles change the way that your references will look in your bibliography. See the UON Library referencing guide for more information about referencing styles.

EndNote comes pre-loaded with many of the most popular styles including APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA and Vancouver, as well as a number of styles for specific journals. You can also get more styles from the EndNote styles download site.

Check out the Selecting output styles' section of the UON Introduction to EndNote 21 guide for detailed instructions on selecting a style and downloading additional styles.

Additional output styles

Listed below are some additional styles which are not pre-loaded in EndNote - you may need to download these if you want to use them:

AGLC4 (Law)

Australian Guide to Legal Citation 4th ed (AGLC4)

To format your references correctly in the AGLC4 style, you will need to download and apply a modified output style.

You must download and save two separate files for the AGLC4 style to work in EndNote.

We recommend that you use the files created by UTS:

  1. ‚ÄčLegal Reference Types: this covers the Reported Cases, Legislation, Parliamentary Debates, Treaties, Books, Journal Articles, etc.
  2. AGLC4 (UTS) style: this allows you to correctly format references and use them in Word.

To install the files please follow the instructions on the UTS Install the AGLC style page.

Once you have installed the Legal Reference Types, downloaded the AGLC Reference Style, and selected AGLC4 (UTS) as your Output Style, you will be ready to use EndNote to format your references in the AGLC4 style.

Note:  When you have added all your references to your bibliography you must divide your bibliography into the following categories:

A. Articles/Books/Reports
B. Cases
C. Legislation
D. Treaties
E. Others

Further information can be found on the UTS page of EndNote for Law: Referencing with EndNote using AGLC 4th edition.
