With SLU:s output styles for EndNote you can easily format your reference list according to SLU:s standard for dissertations and theses.
Download the SLU output style to EndNote
The output style can be used with EndNote desktop versions X7 or later. Download the output style:
- SLU_Publications_Endnote_en_v9_2.ens (April 2021)
Install the output style in the computer
For the output style to work with EndNote, install the file in the folder:
- Windows: home folder\(My) Documents\EndNote\Styles (in AD)
Create the folders EndNote and Styles if they are missing. In AD you can find an EndNote folder containing the folder Examples but the style will not work if you put in into that folder. It is however possible to create an EndNote folder beside the present one and in the new one create a Styles folder.
- Windows: C:\Program files\\EndNote [version number]\Styles (e.g. in a laptop that is used outside AD).
- Mac OS: Applications/EndNote [version number]/Styles
Activate the output style in EndNote
Windows: In EndNote, click the menu Tools > Output Styles > Open Style Manager and check SLU_Thesis_Endnote_vX. Close the EndNote Styles window. Then the style will be available in the Output Styles List.
Mac OS: In EndNote, click the menu Tools > Output Styles > Open Style Manager and check SLU_Thesis_Endnote_vX. Close the EndNote Styles window. Then the style will be available in the Output Styles List. You find it above the pane previewing the selected reference.
Use EndNote to insert references in Word
Go to Word. Place the cursor where the citation should be inserted. There are more than one method to insert references. One of them is described here. Klick the Insert Citation button
- in a Windows computer on the EndNote [version number] tab,
- in a Mac computer on the EndNote toolbar or the menu Tools > EndNote [version number]
and look up the reference. The citation and the reference are inserted in the Word document. If they are not correctly shaped, try to click the Format Bibliography button and choose SLU_Thesis_Endnote_vX.
Important to know about using EndNote together with Word
The reference list may not be completely formatted even if you use a style. EndNote inserts the information in correct order, inserts punctuation marks and italicizes some information. EndNote also puts formats to the text like font size, paragraph indent and paragraph spacing that not necessarily are the ones you want. If you use a template containing a special style for references, you need to change text formats by applying the intended style to the reference list.
