Here’s how to change EndNote to show all authors and not “et al” in the reference list as is required with NIH submissions.
Please note that you can download the following output styles from EndNote.com: Vancouver – NIH and NIH (Grant Format).
Nurses often use APA style. so that’s what I use for the following. You can also choose the style Author-Date instead of APA and follow the same steps.
Make sure APA 6th is in your favorites style list. You can place it there if it isn’t by doing this:
Edit, Output Styles, Open Style Manager, check APA 6th and close window. Now using Edit, Output Styles, make sure APA 6th is checked as your style of choice.
Now edit this style to show all authors in the reference list:
Edit, Output Styles, edit APA 6th, and a dialog box opens
Under Bibliography, click Author Lists, select List all author names, close and save – say yes to changes, which leads to the option of entering a new name (e.g., APA 6th NIH), and save.
Now place the newly edited style in your favorites list:
Edit, Output Styles, Open Style Manager, check APA 6th NIH and close window. Now using Edit, Output Styles, make sure APA 6th NIH is checked as your style of choice. EndNote will now use this style to format your bibliography. You may need to go into your Word manuscript and choose under the EndNote tab Update Citations and Bibliography.
