Hello fellow researchers,
I am currently working on my thesis format and need some assistance with formatting in-text citations in EndNote X9 according to the citation style required by my university. The university has provided specific guidelines for citing works with multiple authors in APA 7th style, and I am struggling to adapt it in EndNote X9.
The guidelines for in-text citations with multiple authors are as follows:
- For works with two authors, both authors’ names should be cited using the word “and” to connect them (e.g., Lastname1, F. I. 1, and Lastname2, F. I. 2).
- For works with no more than seven authors, each author’s name should be separated by a comma, and the word “and” should be used before the last author’s name (e.g., Lastname1, F. I. 1, Lastname2, F. I. 2, …, and Lastname7, F. I. 7).
- For works with eight or more authors, the names of the first six authors should be specified, separated by commas, and an ellipsis (…) or (…,) should be used before the last author’s name (e.g., Lastname1, F. I. 1, Lastname2, F. I. 2, Lastname3, F. I. 3, …, and LastnameN, F. I. N).
I would appreciate any guidance or instructions on how to modify the author lists and configure the punctuation and conjunctions correctly in EndNote X9 to meet these requirements. If there are any specific settings or modifications I need to make within the software, please let me know.
