To cite while you write, an EndNote toolbar should be installed on the PC/laptop that you're using:
1. Open Word. Click 'EndNote' (the final option along the menu which starts with 'file').
2. This is the EndNote toolbar as displayed in Windows:
3. Click Preferences followed by Application.
5. If the default is set to 'EndNote', select ‘EndNote online’ instead.
6. Enter your EndNote online/Web of Science account email and password (the one you registered and signed in with).
1. If you're using Microsoft Word 2010, try closing and then re-opening Word.
2. If the toolbar still does not appear, go to File > Options in Word. Click 'Customize Ribbon' and select 'Endnote Online' from the right-hand menu. Click 'ok'. You may need to close and then re-open Word.
To choose the appropriate style for your references and in-text citations:
1. Use the Style drop-down box to select your preferred style e.g. APA or Harvard (Bath). 'Style' is located in the middle/along the top of the toolbar
2. You may need to use the Select Another Style option at the top of the list to find the style you want.
3. If the required style is still unlisted: open EndNote Online (using the link in Web of Science). Click the Format tab and then click Bibliography just below. From the ’references’ options, select either ‘all references in my Library’ or a specific group.
4. Click Select Favorites and scroll down the longer list of styles. Select the required style, click Copy to Favorites and then select the style from your ‘favorites’ list. Finally, for the ‘file format’, select ‘TXT’ file type. Click ‘save’. You may then need to refresh your screen. You may also need to save/close and reopen Word.
5. It's not possible for users to edit or add new Output Styles in EndNote Online. If you wish to do this, you may prefer to use Endnote Desktop.
Find and select citations:
1. Position your cursor at the relevant point in the sentence where you need to cite a source of information that you've either quoted or used to inform your writing.
2.Click Insert Citations on the EndNote toolbar
3. A dialog box will appear. Search for the reference: enter title keywords or author’s surname and click Find. A list of any corresponding references from your EndNote library will appear in the box. Select the relevant reference and click 'Insert'.
4. You should now see the author’s name and the date of the paper appear as a bracketed citation within your writing e.g. (Patel, 2019). Simultaneously, a full reference should appear at the end of your writing.
5. Alternatively: to exclude the author name(s) from the bracketed citation, click the small arrow next to the 'insert' button and click the 'exclude author' option instead. Then add the author name(s) manually outside of the brackets. Again, the full corresponding reference will appear simultaneously.
6. As you insert further citations, their corresponding full references should appear in the correct order at the end of your writing.
