Tip! Find a style to modify that is as close to the style you need to use.
Modify the settings for punctuation, anonymous works, page numbers, journal name and sections after 'About this Style' in the left hand panel. For example:
Page numbers: How should the page numbers display? eg 123-125; 123-25; 123-5, etc.
Journal names: Does the style require full journal name or an abbreviated version?
Note: You need to have imported term lists if you wish to use an abbreviated version.
Select Templates under Citations to modify the display of in-text citations. Make your edits as needed, eg delete the commas.
Note: Take care not to delete the special separators such as | and the link text diamond shape within the round brackets.
Select Templates under Bibliography to modify the full reference style for the references/ bibliography. Here you can:
Edit punctuation format: Place your cursor where you want to add or remove punctuation marks. Make your edits, taking care not to delete separators, eg change full-stops to commas; add inverted commas.
Modify font formatting: Highlight what you would like to change and modify the font, eg highlight 'Conference Name' and go to Edit > Font > Italic to change conference names to appear in italics.
Add additional fields via the Insert Field function, for example an Issue:
Add adjacent words, eg vol. or no. in front of the volume & issue numbers:
Change other formatting settings for the full reference style if necessary. For instance, you could change:
Save by selecting File > Save As, renaming it to distinguish it from the style you based it on, then Save.
Go to 'Select Another Style...' in your Output Styles drop-down box to add your new or modified style to your Output Styles shortlist.
You would need to modify an EndNote style:
For example, you wish to change EndNote's Harvard style from looking like:
