Inserting a citation

The function « Cite While You Write » (CWYW) allows you to insert a cited author from an EndNote library into a Word text and automatically generate the bibliography at the end of the document.

There are two possible methods :

1. Insert the citation from within EndNote by using the Tools > Cite While You Write (CWYW) > Insert Citation command.


2. Insert the citation through Word:

  • Position the cursor (|) where the citation should be inserted in your document.
  • Under the EndNote 20 tab, click Go to EndNote.
  • Select the desired reference(s) from your EndNote library.
  • Click on Insert Citation ()

NOTE : Enable Instant Formatting for automatic updating (Word EndNote tab, Bibliography group). If automatic updating is disabled, the cited authors appear in a temporary form, e.g. {Mintzberg, 1979 #40}. Click on Update Citations and Bibliography to format.

Consult the FAQ page of this guide for any problems.
