Logo for Endnote basic

EndNote Basic (online) is free to anyone but while you are at the university it will give you access to a range of extra referencing styles, including the university approved ones.

EndNote Basic will allow you to share a group of references which can be useful if you are working with others.



  • Go to and login to Web of Science with your university username and password.(This will show that you are associated with the university).
  • Click EndNote at the top of the screen.
  • Click register and complete the online form.
  • You will need to think carefully about a password - it requires at least one letter, one number and one symbol.

EndNote in Word

If you have the correct software installed you should see this toolbar in Word allowing you to work with your EndNote references. If you don't have it go into EndNote and look for the download installers link at the bottom of the screen.

Swansea styles

Three of the Swansea approved styles are available in EndNote online - APA 6th Swansea, MHRA Swansea and Vancouver Swansea. Oscola unfortunately doesn't work well with EndNote online.

If you don't see the style you want appearing in Word, go to EndNote online and click the Format tab. Click Select Favorites and add the one you need to your favorites list. You will need to close and reopen Word to pick up the new style.
