EndNote styles comply with most requirements for subsequent citation e.g. to only give a short form of the title. If you need to make additional changes, you can edit the style.
For easy access to the Insert Footnote and Cross-reference functions in Word, add them to your Quick Access Toolbar.
Important note: The Cross-reference function does not automatically update your cross-references when you make a change. To update the cross-references click F9 on your keyboard (or Fn + F9 on a laptop).
There is no special EndNote feature to insert footnotes and . Simply use Word’s or from the References tab, then go to EndNote to select a reference and click Insert Citation . More detailed instructions are provided below.
It is very important to use the Cross-reference function in Word so that they will automatically be updated if you move blocks of text or add/delete citations earlier in your document.
Position your cursor in your Word Document where you wish the footnote number to appear.
Go to the References tab in Word and click Insert Footnote.
Word will insert a footnote number in the text and move your cursor to the footnote pane.
Click the EndNote tab.
Select an appropriate footnote style e.g. Chicago 16th or OSCOLA.
Click Insert Citation and select Insert Citation from the drop-down menu.
The Find and Insert My References box will appear and you can search for a citation.
Select a reference and click Insert.
Alternatively, instead of steps 3-7, go to your EndNote Library, select the reference to be cited and click Insert Citation .
Some styles require subsequent citations to be in an abbreviated form with a cross-reference to the initial citation e.g. in the OSCOLA style ‘Smith (n3)’ is a subsequent citation to a journal article by Smith cited in footnote 3.
Use the Cross-reference function in Word so that your document automatically updates when you enter new citations.
Insert a footnote as usual then go to EndNote to select the reference for your subsequent citation and click Insert Citation .
If your style has been set up correctly in EndNote it will insert your subsequent citation in the appropriate format e.g. the OSCOLA style only requires the surname of the first author for a journal article.
In Word place your cursor at the end of the Footnote outside the ‘grey’ EndNote field for your subsequent citation.
Type a prefix if needed e.g. OSCOLA requires cross-references to be in the form (n4) for a cross-reference to footnote 4 so the prefix is (n.
Click Insert Cross-reference in the Word toolbar (if you can’t see the word Cross-reference, click the small button with red dashes next to Insert Caption).
In the Cross-Reference box choose the following options:
Reference Type = Footnote
Insert Reference to: = Footnote Number
Choose the relevant footnote and click Insert
Type any punctuation needed to close the cross-reference e.g .for OSCOLA type a round bracket.
If you are using a PinPoint (page number etc.) add this after the Cross-Reference.
