Vancouver Style: The University of Queensland have a modified Vancouver Style on their Library website

APA 6th: The standard APA 6th works well and already comes with EndNote.

APA 7th is available to download via Clarivate website:  ​[24th June 2020]

More than 6000 styles are available for download from the EndNote Website.


How to install additional styles

1. Download the style (for JLSB reference style click here)

2. Double-click the style file.  It should open in EndNote

3. On the open style, go to “File Menu” and choose “Save As”.  Replace the word “copy” with your style’s name and click “Save”.

4. Click on “File Menu” and choose “Close Style”

5. Then Go back to your EndNote Library and go to "select another style". Choose it from the list


Where to save your styles

The 400 styles which come with EndNote are usually located in this location:

These can stay here

C:\Program Files\EndNote\Styles

Any extra  styles will need to be saved outside of your Program files, into your personal styles folder.  EndNote will then merge these folders into one list when you go to choose a style.

To find the correct folder location for your personal styles folder, first open EndNote and look in Edit>Preferences>Folder locations.  This will tell you the default file path.  The first time you should create the Styles folder following this pattern.
It will look similar to this:

C:\Users\UserName\My Documents\EndNote\Styles

Save any modified styles you download into your personal styles folder


Change Styles

In EndNote, reference or bibliographic style templates are called 'Output Styles'. EndNote supports output styles for in-text citations, numbered in-text citations, and footnotes.

Approx 500 common styles come pre-loaded with EndNote, listed under "Select Another Style".
