Cite While You Write in MS Word Toolbar
To insert citations into your Word document, remember that anything you want to cite must be saved to your EndNote library.
- Start typing your document. Place the cursor where you would like to insert a citation.
- Click on the Find Citation command in the EndNote toolbar to open up a connection to EndNote Basic. You will be asked to log in to your EndNote Basic account. Enter a term in the search box that will bring up the desired citation(s) in the search results. Click on the citations(s) to be inserted, then click Insert.
- EndNote Basic will insert the citation in the document and start to build your references at the end of the document. The references may appear in a generic format.
- To make the in-text citations and reference list appear in the style of your choice, ex. APA 6th, JAMA, Vancouver, etc., click on the arrow in the Bibliography button to see your options.
- Continue writing your document and inserting citations.
