EndNote Law: Citations

Note: This study guide has been updated to take into account changes due to the 4th edition of the AGLC.

This study guide has been designed to help you use the EndNote program to manage your referencing. The guide provides templates for citing a range of legal resources, including both primary and secondary legal materials. The guide demonstrates that you do not need to use all the fields found in an EndNote reference type - simply use the fields mentioned in the examples below. Note that the examples are arranged in alphabetical order.

At UTS the legal referencing style available for use with EndNote is AGLC4 (UTS). This style is based on the Australian Guide to Legal Citation - online (4th edition, 2018) published by Melbourne University Law Review. The Australian Guide to Legal Citation - print version can be borrowed through the Library Catalogue.

The table below provides examples of how the various legal reference types look using AGLC (UTS) EndNote style in footnotes. For information on how to download the AGLC4 Law style for EndNote see EndNote Law: Install. In the table below, numbers in parentheses, for example (AGLC4 3.2) refer to relevant sections of the AGLC 4th edition.

<p>Hi Library,</p><p>What's your strategy for citing submissions to parliamentary inquiries? I note that endnote doesn't have a field that allows for direct input of metadata.</p>

Hi Keifer

Patrick, 4 years ago
<p>Hi Keifer</p><p>you've picked one of the reference types not specifically catered for by the style in EndNote!</p><p>As always there is a workaround, as follows:</p><p>-Use the "Bills or Alert Digest" Reference type<br />-Type the author of the submission into the Author field (as usual if the author is an organisation type a comma after the last word)<br />-Type the title of the inquiry into the Title field<br />-Type the details about the submission into the Legislature field (see examples in 6.2 of the AGLC, eg Submission No 25 to Australian Competition and Consumer Commission)<br />-Type full date into the Full Date field<br />-Type Various (or whatever label you use for Other Sources) into the Label field</p><p>Leave other fields empty. This should then work OK. Add pinpoints into your footnotes as usual.</p><p>Regards</p><p>Patrick</p>

Legal referencing of ACCC submission paper

Yanko's picture
Yanko, 2 years ago
<p>Having read AGLC (ed3) rule 6.2, I'm not sure if it's the correct format for referencing a submission paper to an ACCC consultation paper.</p><p>I need advice as to whether I should use AGLC rule 6.2 as it requires a submission number. The problem i've noticed is the ACCC submissions don't have numbers listed apart from the author, titles and dates. The AGLC handbook on p105 has an example for submissions to the ACCC which may be helpful (or not?)</p><p>see accc page&nbsp;https://www.accc.gov.au/regulated-infrastructure/communications/national-broadband-network-nbn/nbn-co-sau-variation/consultation-paper</p><p>Also the earlier workaround by Patick using "<span>Bills or Alert Digest" isnt available in EndNote v7.7</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

Endnote, Book, multiple Authors

Are there any clues on entering multiple book authors for a reference in endnote that delivers the correct citation format for AGLC?
