Citing personal communications

Hi there,

I’m citing quotes from a series of interviews in my study on a regular basis. I’m using the personal communication format for the reference. Is their a way to shorten this? I’m just trying to avoid having the full personal communication reference after every quote.

Which version of Endnote are you using and how are you importing the references – directly from an online database or as a file which is then imported into Endnote? The missing year may be due to either a problem with the online database or the file which may be missing or recoded the year “tag” so it doesn’t import properly.

in text citations or footnotes?  

Hi there,

In text citations, and its Endnote x7

Thanks, I’ll give this a look.

Yes, then I think CG has described the best way to approach this.
