To create a new reference:
1. Click the 'New Reference' button
2. Select your reference type. The default is Journal Article. There are various reference types to choose from (e.g. Book Section for book chapters, Book, Web Page, Audiovisual Material).
3. Type information into the appropriate boxes, also called fields (e.g. Author, Year, Title, Journal, Volume, Issue, Pages). A minimal amount of information only needs to be entered to suit the Output Style you are using.
4. Enter your notes about the item in the Research Notes box.
Tips for entering references:
Author names should be entered one per line.
The most common mistake when entering author names is to leave out the comma between the last name and first name in the recommended format below. This causes the author names to display incorrectly in the preview pane and your document.
Do not abbreviate author lists (i.e. use et al.). EndNote will display author lists according to the rules of your selected style.
