EndNote output style (interim): Australian Government Style Manual (digital)

Aust Govt Style Manual EndNote output style (author–date) interim draft 3

This EndNote output style reflects the referencing style (author–date) in the digital Australian Government Style Manual at August 2021.

Please note this is an interim draft, created by an independent professional editor. I hope it’s in good shape, but it’s not perfect and it has limitations – for example, it doesn’t hyperlink titles. As I understand it, an official version is to be created by EndNote in collaboration with the Australian Government Digital Transformation Agency. You may find this useful in the meantime. I’m happy to take feedback on errors and omissions. Please check back for updates.
