I’m new to Endnote so the answer may be obvious, but it isn’t to me.
I’m formatting references for the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. If I import a sample citation that has capitalizations of certain words in the title (e.g., the name of a protein) that should look like this:
“… phosphorylation of JNK1 by FAK is …”
into my document (MS Word 2004, Mac, Leopard, Endnote X2.1), it comes out as:
“… phosphorylation of jnk1 by fas is …”
Neither the ‘JNK’ nor the ‘FAK’ were capitalized properly. This is because, from what I can tell, the ‘title capitalization’ of the style for that journal is set to ‘sentence style’, which means the entire title, after the first letter, will be lower case.
Ok, so I go to Edit Output Styles in Endnote for this particular journal and change title capitalization to ‘leave titles as entered’. Since the acronyms are formatted as capitalized when Endnote imports them (I can see that in Preview), I should be good, right?
Nope. I go back to my Word document and the capitalizations are wrong. If I re-import the citation, it’s still wrong. If I quit both Word and Endnote and re-start both, it’s still wrong.
So clearly I’m missing something. How do I fix this?
