Using the Brookes Harvard referencing style with EndNote Web

  • My department requires me to put my references in the Harvard style. Can I do this with EndNote Web?
    Yes, we have created the Brookes Harvard referencing style for EndNote Web which matches the Harvard guidance given in Cite Them Right Online. Please note there are 2 versions of this style - the only difference is in how they deal with multiple authors. Check with your department if you are unsure which version you should use:

    • 'BrookesHarvard' uses 'et al' for 4 or more authors in the bibliography.
    • 'BrookesHarvardAllAuthors' lists all authors in the bibliography regardless of number. This is a requirement of some departments (especially in the sciences) and therefore we have provided an alternative style.

    NB There are some variations in local practice at Brookes, so always check with your department about what they require and whether the style you're using is acceptable.

    How do I get the Brookes Harvard style for EndNote Web?
    In order to use the Brookes Harvard styles and many others, you will need to make sure that your EndNote Web account is linked to your Brookes account - this is known as "roaming access":

    • To check whether you have roaming access activated, go to EndNote Web and log into your account. Choose the 'Options' tab and then 'Subscription'. You'll see your account information which will indicate whether you currently have roaming access or not. If you haven't got roaming access, sign out of your account and return to the EndNote Web sign in page, then follow the steps below.
    • On the EndNote Web sign in page, click on 'Sign in via your institutional login' - NB don't sign into your EndNote account  at this point. 
    • Scroll down the list of regions and select 'UK Federation', then click on Go.
    • At the Web of Science page, go to the drop-down menu under 'Institutional (Shibboleth) Users Sign In'
    • At the page ‘Which organisation would you like to sign in with?’ type in Oxford Brookes, select it from the results, then click on Continue.
    • At the grey Brookes login page, login with your Brookes student number and Brookes password. 
    • You’ll then be returned to the EndNote Web sign in page. Sign in with your email address and EndNote password.
    • Choose 'Options' and then 'Subscription' (as above) to check your roaming access has been activated.

    My department requires me to put my references in a different style. Can I do this with EndNote Web?
    Yes, a wide range of other referencing styles are available to Brookes users on EndNote Web. See Using EndNote Web with Word - 'What referencing styles are available in EndNote Web?'
