EndNote Basic ENG: Reference styles

Selecting output styles

“Output style” is the term EndNote uses to refer to the template file used to format the citations and bibliography correctly for your citation or referencing style. The output style controls what is in capitals, what is in bold or italics and determines the many other ways that references for journal articles, book chapters or books are laid out. Within Zuyd-the APA is the preferred style. 

If you want to change your output style in EndNote Basic or Word, you first need to add the style you want to use to your Favorites.
You have to do this in EndNote Basic, select the tab Format, click on Bibliography:

Click on Select Favorites, the next screen opens. Select a style in the list All, then click on Copy to Favorites.

Repeat these steps until you have selected all your styles (max 25).
Click Hide to close the screen.

APA

The rules of APA Style, detailed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, offer sound guidance for writing with simplicity, power, and concision. APA Style has been adapted by many disciplines and is used by writers around the world.

On the APA site, you will find tutorials, FAQs, and other resources to help you improve your writing and master APA Style.
The Publication Manual is also available in the library, as are other books about APA.

​If you use EndNote Basic, your references may look different in some details to those prescribed by these APA guidelines. This is not a problem as long as you are consistent.

APA (Dutch)

Various Dutch university of applied sciences librarians have collaborated to create a Dutch APA manual:

De APA-richtlijnen uitgelegd: een praktische handleiding voor bronvermelding in het hoger onderwijs 

​If you use EndNote Basic, your references may look different in some details to those prescribed by these APA guidelines. This is not a problem as long as you are consistent.
