EndNote Guide: APA 7th and EndNote

EndNote is a reference organiser and writing solution. It is the ideal, time-saving software to enable students to collect references and then use this library to add citations to a Word document

APA 7th EndNote style

EndNote has released a style for APA 7th Edition, which is included in the CDU download package. however the style has some errors and needs some work.
 
We recommend using the style to get the rough pieces of your referencing in place, but not relying on it. After you have finished using EndNote to populate your references, Convert to Plain Text and use the CDU APA 7th Referencing Style guide or the APA website to correct any mistakes.
 
Known problems with the EndNote APA 7th style:
  1. Multiple authors: EndNote cannot currently handle APA 7th's approach to 20+ authors. If you have more than 20 authors, you will need to edit your reference to replace the authors between the 19th and the last author with ellipses (...)
  2. Retrieval dates - APA requires retrieval dates for resources designed to change over time and not archived e.g. online dictionary, google maps pin, changing population clocks. If you do want to show retrieval date ensure you include this in the "access date" field
  3. If the author and publisher of a book are the same, OMIT the publisher name from that field so it doesn't duplicate
  4. Dictionary entry - If using a dictionary entry you will need to do some manual editing
  5. Journal references - Type of Article: The journal article reference format includes the Type of Article field for specific article types such as editorials or reviews or for articles in special issues. However this field should not be displayed for most articles and should be removed.
  6. Journal article references - if the doi has imported with extra https... info you will need to manually remove this from the front of the doi, just include the doi string e.g. 10.1016/j.clinbiomech.2019.12.009. The program will insert the https://doi.org/
