A guide to using EndNote X9

Edit references in EndNote

Edit a reference in the EndNote Library by:

  • Double-click on the reference you want to alter.
  • Scroll down using the bar on the right, and enter or change any fields, as you need to.
  • When you have finished, just click on the X in the top right corner of the Reference Box. Your changes will be saved automatically.

A common edit you will need to make is if you have any corporate authors, that is authors that are organizations. To make their names display properly, you need to edit the record in your EndNote library to add a comma at the end of the organization's name. 

For example: World Health Organization,

To do this in batch (when having to deal with many corporate authors):

Use: Top Bar > edit > Find & Replace (CTRL+R)
