Multiple Citations & Footnotes

Inserting multiple citations

To insert multiple citations:

  • Hold the Ctrl (PC) or Command key (Mac) while selecting multiple references in your Endnote 20 Library.


Select the Insert Citation icon on the EndNote tab in Word. This opens the EndNote Find & Insert My References dialog. Hold the Ctrl or command key while selecting multiple references.

  • Insert selected references as explained in the preceding tabs, under Method 1 or Method 2.

Inserting footnotes into Word documents

To insert a citation into a footnote you will need to create a footnote first by using the Insert Footnote function on the Reference tab in Word.

  • Find the citation and insert it the same way you do your in-text citations. A corresponding entry will be added to the bibliography.

Note: It is vital to select a footnote style when you want to insert footnotes. To view and select a footnote style, select Output Styles and then Open Style Manager from the Edit menu in EndNote. The information on each style will usually indicate if it is a footnote style. One well-known footnote style is Chicago 17th A. Many other styles will work in text and in footnotes (e.g. Harvard and APA).
