- find full-text articles in PDF format

Output styles are the referencing styles that are used to control the formatting of references in a bibliography. UoW styles are NOT automatically loaded in the EndNote programme. Library staff have created styles for APA 6th, MHRA, Harvard Science, Harvard Geography, Law, Anthropology and Politics. Find them at the UoW EndNote Support webpage and save the styles you require. (See Where do I save?)
The complete list of styles is available on the EndNote Output Styles page
Filters are available freely from many websites. We recommend the EndNote website.
