There are thousands of referencing styles, and many journals insist on authors using their own in-house style when submitting papers for publication. EndNote installs with 500 output styles (APA, Chicago, etc), but over 7000 additional styles are available on the EndNote Style Finder page. See link below.

To choose your style in EndNote X9 see Edit > Output Styles > Open Style Manager

To choose your Output Style in EndNote 20:

  1. With your Library open, click on a reference.
  2. In the bottom of the right panel you will see the current style.
  3. The style that is presently selected can be changed by clicking the dropdown arrow.
  4. If the list does not include your preferred style, click Select Another Style to browse the EndNote Choose A Style list. Should an individual output style you wish to use not appear in EndNote's default selection of styles, you may want to check whether it is available for download from EndNote's Style Finder or other source.

If the style you are required to use is not one of those in the EndNote default list, go to the EndNote Output Styles Finder  (see link below), and search for the style using whatever information you may have (eg journal or style name, publisher etc). If the style has been registered with EndNote, you may download it.

AGLC is an exception to this. The AGLC Output Style for EndNote has been created in-house by several universities in Australia, and is available from their websites. Please see the link below to go to The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) site, where you will find a download and installation guide.

Note: The EndNote Output Styles Finder page conveniently contains detailed instructions on how to download the style to your EndNote Library or click on the "Install a new style" link below
