Create a Plain Text Word Document

EndNote codes are embedded in the Word documents. In some situations, you may want to create a "clean" copy of your document MINUS these EndNote codes (Plain Word document)

  • If you are submitting a paper for publication you may be asked to remove field codes.
  • It allows you to do any last minute fixes to your bibliography or in-text citations that you couldn't resolve in EndNote.

Warning:  Once you convert the document it cannot be "reconnected" to EndNote codes.  Always keep an original copy of the document with the coding!

  1. In Word, Click on Convert Citations and Bibliography
