Teaching EndNote to write to a specific journal
EndNote can be taught to format your document according to any journal you may want to submit your manuscript to. These instructions are saved in a format file specific to that journal. It is likely that someone has already learned EndNote to format manuscripts for the journal you are interested in. These instructions can be downloaded and copied into your EndNote:
- Have a look at EndNote output styles to be downloaded. You can download instructions for a specific journal as a file.
- Then copy the downloaded files to your styles folder, which is typically located at
C:Program Files (x86)-EndNote X7-Styles, or to your personal Styles folder.
- Restart EndNote.
- Click on the
Editmenu, then choose
Output Styles, then
Open Style manager.
- Your new journal should appear in the list. Ensure you tick the box beside the journal name.
- Go to Word and open the EndNote tab. In the drop down list for
Stylechoose your journal.
