EndNote is a program for storing and managing bibliographic references recommended for current Western Sydney University postgraduate students and staff. EndNote allows you to import references from library catalogues or other electronic databases and to search, edit and integrate references into a Word document.
There is a known issue with certain versions of EndNote 20 running on a Mac using an M1 chip. If your Mac device has an M1 chip, please see this Clarivate article explaining the issue: Apple M1 chip compatibility. This issue should not affect a Mac running EndNote 20.1.0 or later.
References in your EndNote library can be formatted in various bibliographic styles such as APA, Harvard WesternSydU, Vancouver WesternSydU and others using a Style File. Please check with your lecturer or tutor if you are uncertain which style to use for a particular subject.
EndNote has a range of reference and citation styles used by Western Sydney University. Some exceptions include the AGLC and Harvard WesternSydU style. These Style Files can be downloaded and saved to your computer.
Use the link below to download the style file and save it to Documents\EndNote\Styles. Once downloaded, it will be available for use in EndNote and Word.

Additional Output Styles can be downloaded from Clarivate. Use Clarivate’s Style Finder to search for a style name, citation style, and/or publisher and to check for the latest version of an output style, e.g. APA 7th. You can access over 6,000 styles offered by Clarivate: EndNote Output Styles.
References exported from the library catalogue or publisher platforms can be imported into your EndNote library in three ways:
References can be exported directly to your EndNote library from search results retrieved via the Library Search Box on the Library website. For more information on this process, see the Library EndNote 20 Training Notes.
Where direct export is not available many databases allow citations to be saved in a particular format and be imported into EndNote with a Filter File. Filter Files enable EndNote to ‘read’ the saved information to import the data into the appropriate fields. Support is available on the Filter Finder Clarivate website.
It is possible to access records in some library catalogues directly through EndNote.
Download and install the Western Sydney University Connection File: Western_Sydney_U, to search the Library Search Box from inside EndNote. You'll find instructions on Installing EndNote Connection Files in the Clarivate Knowledgebase.
