EndNote Library Guide: Choosing your output style

A guide on using EndNote to manage your citations

What output style do I need to use?

UCT uses the UCT-Harvard referencing style, but it is possible that your faculty has a preference for a different referencing style. In EndNote you can continuously change the style to the one you need.

If you are unsure about which style to use, consult your subject librarian.

Writing Centre

Writing help: UCT also has a Writing Centre where consultants can help you with your writing and referencing. Steve Biko Building, Room 6.16, Level 6. View Map.

What if my style isn't in EndNote?

It is possible to search EndNote's online database of more than 5000 different output styles by going to 'Edit', clicking on 'Output Styles' and then 'Open Style Manager'. Here there is an option for you to browse the styles already on EndNote and search for more on the web by clicking 'Get more on the web'.

It will open a page in your browser and allow you to search through different styles for the one you want.
