Footnotes can be created by combining usage of the References tab within Word with adding citations via EndNote Online.

  1. Within your Word document, position the cursor where you want to add the footnote.

  2. Go to the References tab in the Word toolbar and choose Insert footnote.

  3. Go back to the EndNote tab on the Word toolbar and use the Insert citations icon to add the citation you require, which will then be added as a footnote.

  4. With some output styles, you will only get the citation as a footnote, without it appearing in a bibliography at the end of your document. Whilst this may be acceptable on some occasions, at other times you will require a full bibliography as well as footnotes. In this case you must choose an output style which you know will also produce a final bibliography. Styles which do this include MMU Harvard, Chicago 15th, Numbered, MLA, APA, Turabian, OSCOLA.

  5. You may need to alter footnotes to include page numbers. This can easily be done by clicking on the footnote reference to highlight it, then choosing Edit citation and adding the page details in the suffix tab. Please see the FAQ on Page numbers for more information.
