The Cite While You Write (CWYW) tool allows you to insert references, and format citations and reference lists automatically while you write your papers in Word. You will need to install the Cite While You Write plug-in. To do this:
Once installed, an EndNote tab will be added to your Microsoft Word ribbon:
In EndNote Online:
In Microsoft Word:
A limited selection of referencing styles are listed in EndNote Online. Please contact Curtin Library if you require other styles to be added.
Changes to in-text citations should be made using the Edit citations function in the CWYW toolbar.
If you need to alter reference list entries, make the necessary edits in your EndNote Online library then select the citation in Word, click on Edit Citation(s) (Windows) or Edit & Manage Citation(s) (Mac) and from the Edit Reference drop down menu select Update from My Library… to apply the changes.
While EndNote formatting is active you should avoid manually deleting citations from the Word document. Invisible field codes may be left behind which can affect the document formatting or lead to the citation reappearing when you close and reopen the document. To safely remove citations:
It is recommended that you convert your finalised document to plain text before submitting for assessment or publication. Converting to plain text creates a second copy of the document which isn’t linked to your EndNote Online library. Creating a plain text copy also allows you to make manual changes to your citations and reference list.
It is important to keep the original document with the EndNote formatting in case you need to make changes to it later (EndNote Online citations cannot be reactivated from a plain text copy).
