I use Endnote X2 for a Mac and have noticed that when I create a reference for a conference proceedings using APA style, it instead formats the citation as a paper presented at a conference. Has anyone else experienced this problem and is there a way to resolve it?
You can edit the Bibliography template for Conference Proceedings to generate the output you want. I assume you don’t like “Paper presented at the” part, so you could just delete that from the template leaving:
Author. (|Year of Conference|, Date|). Title|. Conference Name|, Conference Location|.
save the changed version as a new name. I then delete the original from the styles installation folder and rename file in the preferences style folder, so I don’t have to remember to use the edited rather than original style.
