Citations & Bibliography
Two places to cite the references you have used:
• within a sentence (in-text citation)
In-text Citation
Herring and Paolillo (2006) found that the genre of a web entry, rather
than the gender of the writer, affects the style of writing.
• at the end of the document (bibliography/references)
Bibliography/Reference

weblogs. Journal of Sociolinguistics, 10(4), 439-459.

Introduction to Bibliographic Software
& EndNote
A software that:
• stores and organises references from
many sources
• inserts these references into a Word
document, and
• automatically formats your
references according to a predefined
citation style

EndNote Workflow
1. Create an EndNote Library
2. Add references to the EndNote Library
3. Manage references: using groups & finding duplicates
4. Insert references in MS Word (Cite While You Write)
5. Change citation style and edit preferences
13
Step 1: Create an EndNote Library
a.
b.
c.

Hands-on
All programs > EndNote > EndNote Program
File > New
Filename: Test (*.enl)

Method 1: Direct Export
Export references directly from database
a. At the database, select the records you want
b. Save, output, export or send to EndNote
(Look for “RIS format”)
c. Click Open to transfer records to your EndNote
library
16
Method 2: Import .txt File
Used when references cannot be exported to EndNote.
Very few databases e.g. Factiva
a. At the database, select the records you want
b. Export text (.txt) file and save on desktop
c. In EndNote, go to File > Import

Method 3: Online Search
NATL
Search free databases (e.g. PubMed) and library
catalogues (e.g. LINC, Library of Congress)
a. Go to Online Search Mode > More
b. Select a free database or catalogue, e.g. NATL U of
Singapore
c. In the online search pane, search by exact title of book
or conference proceeding
d. Copy the reference to Local Library Mode
18
Method 4: Import PDF Files
Extracts references from PDF files
PDF must contain a Digital Object Identifer (DOI) and is
not a scanned document.
a. In EndNote, go to File > Import
b. Choose either file or folder, and change Import
Option > PDF
Note: If the author, title, journal, etc, fields are not
auto-populated, the PDF could be of the wrong
format or have an incorrect DOI
New in X7 - PDF auto-import folder

Step 3: Duplicate References
To set criteria:
• Edit > Preferences > Duplicates
To find duplicates:
• References > Find Duplicates
21
Managing References: Custom vs. Smart Groups
Custom Groups
Create folders to group (categorise) references
Smart Groups
Automatically group references based on your search
criteria, e.g.: author/year/title contains/is/word
begins with…
Note: Any references added to EndNote will be
automatically filed in the group, with immediate
effect
22
Step 4: Cite While You Write (CWYW)
• Use MS Word to insert citations into your paper
• Create a paper with properly formatted references,
bibliography, figures & tables
• Tip: Do NOT edit the citations and bibliographies in
Word. Edit the reference in the EndNote Library only
• Tip: To locate citation and bibliography fields, change
the MS Word’s Field Shading option
23
EndNote Tab & Field Shading
If EndNote is properly installed, you will see the EndNote
tab in Word
After you add references, Field shading shows up as text
highlighted in grey.
24
Inserting Citations
Method 1: Find Citation
a.
EndNote X7 tab:
Insert citation > Find Citation
b.
Search for a word in any field (e.g. title, author)
c.
Select the references that you want to insert into
your paper
Method 2: Insert Selected Citation(s)
a.In EndNote library, select a citation
b.Go to Word and place cursor at insertion point
c.Click on Insert Citation > Insert Selected Citation(s)
25
Editing Citations & References
Edit & Manage Citation(s)
E.g. add page numbers, exclude
author, exclude year
Edit Library Reference(s)
Place cursor in the citation, click
on Edit library references and
make the necessary changes.
Next, click on Update citations
and bibliography
26
Step 5: Change Style & Create a Bib Section
To change the citation style
EndNote X7 tab:
Click on Style > Select Another Style…
To create bibliography section*
a. Bottom right corner of Bibliography
group > Layout > Bibliography title
b. Type References (or Bibliography)
*The bibliography section appears only when you
insert a citation
*New in X7 - Create sections within Bibliography
27
Backing Up Library (1)
Method 1: Save a Copy
Creates an exact copy of the library  xxx Copy.Data
and xxx Copy.enl
• File > Save a Copy…
28
Backing Up Library (2)
Method 2: Compress Library
Saves the .enl file and .Data folder into one compressed file
• File > Compressed Library (.enlx)
• To restore: File > Open > Open Library…
