For customizing footnotes in LaTeX, I use the footmisc package. Specifically, to remove indentation and text justification in footnotes, I add the following to my preamble:

\usepackage[hang, flushmargin, ragged]{footmisc}

The journal I'm submitting to now requires endotes. For that I use the endnotes package. But I can't find a package like footmisc for endnotes. What should I do to remove indentation and text justification in endnotes?

  • Does the journal you're submitting your paper to have its own stylistic guidelines for formatting endnotes? If so, it may not be worth your time developing a separate style for formatting endnotes because it will likely be overridden by the journal's style. You're of course free to keep sending out your papers to colleagues and interested parties, and posting your papers to your department's website, using a format/style that suits your tastes. – Mico Aug 19 '12 at 12:51
  • @Mico I'm aware that the journal will change the details of my formatting anyway, but it's nevertheless useful to know how I can customize endnotes. That said, I definitely need to suppress hyphenation and justification in the endnotes. Most journals in my field require that (to avoid any misinterpretations of hyphenations as intended word hyphens). – Sverre Aug 19 '12 at 12:57

You can redefine \enoteformat:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{endnotes}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\let\footnote=\endnote

\renewcommand\enoteformat{\rightskip=0pt \leftskip=0pt \parindent=0em
  \leavevmode\makeenmark\raggedright}

\begin{document}

text\footnote{test footnote1}
\lipsum[1]
text\footnote{test footnote2 \lipsum[2]}
\lipsum[1-7]
\theendnotes
\end{document}
