If you are using documents authored by an organisation or government department then you will need to format the author field in a different way. By adding a comma after the author EndNote will create your reference as it is written instead of moving the last word or Surname to the front.
ie: Charles Darwin University,
If the author has a comma within the title use a double comma to ensure the citation is added correctly.
ie: Department of Environment,, Northern Territory Government

It is a good practice to back up your library whenever you make changes. There are two ways of backing up your library:
1. To use the 'Save a Copy' command to create an exact copy of your library. Here are the steps:
The new library does not open, it is simply saved to disk, where you can then open it with EndNote. EndNote leaves your original library open as it was before the command was chosen. Note: The Save a Copy command creates a [library name].ENL file as well as a [library name].DATA folder for the new library, and copies all groups and attachements to it.
2. To use the Compressed Library command to save a copy of your library and .data folder together in a compressed file (.enlx) which can be easily restored later by opening it in EndNote. Here are the steps:
From the File menu, select Compressed Library (.enlx) and then Create.
Select the folder or drive where you are saving which will then give you a Compressed EndNote Library (filename.enlx).
To make it easier to read and annotate a pdf:
1. EndNote does not replace the reference style manual. The style in EndNote should be setup to follow the required conventions, but you will still need the manual to ensure there isn't information missing.
2. Check your results every time you import citations. This is especially important when working with sources such as Google Scholar that may have inconsistent data.
3. Use one EndNote library only...yes that's right. It will make your life easier in the long run if you stick to one Library.
4. Always use the 'Edit and Manage Citation' function in Word to edit or delete references. You risk corrupting your document if you manually delete references in your Word document.
5. Footnote styles-your word processor controls the numbering and placement of the footnote and EndNote controls the formatting. You will need to insert the footnote first using Word functions, then insert the EndNote citation into that footnote.
6. EndNote provides a number of ways to import references:
Importing PDF files or folders
A Capture button can be added to a browser (Firefox or Chrome). This allows you to import webpage information directly into EndNote.
7. The sync and share features in EndNote allow you to save a backup copy of your Library to EndNote Online and then share it with other researchers.
8. Get to know the EndNote experts at CDU Library and stay up to date with new features as they are released. Check the workshop calendar for new training options
9. Keeping a backup copy of your Library is important. Save a copy to an external drive and keep it somewhere safe. The version you sync to EndNote Online is a great option but rebuilding the Library from this copy will not completely duplicate the original.
10. There is always support available if you need assistance firstname.lastname@example.org
To include an acronym or abbreviation of an organisation's full name in APA in-text references using EndNote, please follow these steps.
In EndNote, input the organisation's full name in the Author field, adding a comma after the final word (the comma ensures that the corporate/organisation name appears in full.
First time the reference is used in Word:
With your cursor placed in the relevant in-text citation, go to the EndNote ribbon and choose Edit & Manage Citations.
In the Edit Citation pane at the bottom of the pop up window, click the Formatting drop down arrow for options, and select Exclude Author. Follow the instructions below depending on how you want the in-text citation to present:
(Author, Year): manually type the author's name and the acronym in square brackets in the Prefix field, remembering to type a comma and space after the second bracket. Click OK.
The citation will be:
Author (Year): having chosen Exclude Author in the Edit and Manage Citations window, only type AHRC in the Prefix field. In the Word document, manually type the author's name in full in the text before the (EndNote) in-text citation.
The citation will be (note: EndNote citation highlighted):
Subsequent in-text references using the acronym only.
