EndNote is a great program, but whether you’re manually creating references, or exporting them from databases, you’re still going to have to make sure that they are right for the APA style. Here’s some common things you should check:
APA uses sentence-style capitalisation, where only the first word and proper nouns are capitalised in the titles of books, book chapters and journal articles. You may need to manually change the titles of the capitalisation is not correct.
If you’ve exported the reference information from a database, check how the DOI/URL is displaying. Some databases may export two links, some may apply strange formatting to your DOI – make sure you check.
Check your EndNote references against the referencing guide – make sure all the components of your reference are included!
You can find instructions for manually editing references in the EndNote LibGuide.
