Step 4: Select Your Citation Style

Output Styles (Citation Styles)

  • Endnote comes preloaded with a few popular citation styles (called Output styles in EndNote) on the EndNote Toolbar.
  • The style you choose will change the way your in-text citations and bibliography are formatted in your Word document.

To select a citation style/output style for your EndNote library:

  1. Go to the Tools menu on the top toolbar and select Output Styles
  2. Select the desired style
  3. If your style is not listed click on "Open Style Manager"
  4. A pop-up window will display with a list of styles. Scroll through the list to find the desired style and check off the style you wish to add.  Tip: For AMA, select JAMA
  5. Close out of the pop-up and the citation style should be automatically saved in your Output Styles list from now on.
