Inserting footnotes into your Word document:

'Footnote' referencing styles do not automatically create footnotes in your Word document. You will need to do a two step process where you insert a footnote in Word then insert the EndNote citation into the footnote. This will place a reference number in your text and the numbered, formatted reference at the bottom of your page.

Example process:

  1. Open your Endnote library and select the citation that you wish to insert.
  2. In Word, place the cursor at the position where you want to place the in-text citation, then select the References tab and click on Insert Footnote.
  3. Place your cursor in the footnote, and select the Endnote tab. Ensure that you have the correct style selected (in the Bibliography group). 
  4. Insert the selected Endnote citation.
  5. If you need to amend the footnote using the "Edit Citations" button on the Endnote tab.
  6. Continue adding footnotes.

Your footnotes should appear at the bottom of each page, and in the bibliography at the end of your document.
