How to Capitalize Journal Names in EndNote

Capitalization Styles: Endnote Definitions

Leave titles As entered: No changes are made.

Headline style capitalization: The first letter of every significant word is capitalized. Articles and prepositions are not capitalized.

Sentence style capitalization: Only the first letter of every title is capitalized.

Changing Capitalization

Determine if the capitalization you want is selected (by default) for the output style of choice:

    1. Select Tools
    2. Select Output Styles
    3. Select Open Style Manager

Highlight the Style you wish to edit and select edit:

5. On the left side of the screen look for  Bibliography, and the subheading Title Capitalization and determine what the default format is [the default is the bulleted item] If you don't like it you can change it, BUT BE CAREFUL, this becomes a permanent change. A better alternative is to make a copy of the format and then make any changes to it you wish.

6. Both the Footnotes and Bibliography sections have a Title Capitalization panel. This lets you enter one style of capitalization for the titles in your bibliographic references, and another format for when the references appear in footnotes.
