Using EndNote Online with Word on your own PC

  • Click on the Format tab
  • Click on Cite While You Write plug-in and download the appropriate plug-in for your system. See the installation instructions and system requirements links for details:

When you have installed the plug-in and have the EndNote Online tab in Word you should find a range of referencing styles available to you via the drop-down styles menu. If the style you require is not listed click on Select Another Style to see the full list.

If you find that your styles drop-down menu is empty, or you would like a tailored list of styles, you can choose which style(s) you would like from within EndNote online.
