I am having trouble getting EndNote X1 to display a date as requested by the journal. The following snippet is from their website:
Addiscott, T. M., and R. J. Wagenet. (1985, March). “Concepts of solute leaching in soils: A review of modeling approaches.” Journal of Soil Science 36, 411-424.
I thought I understood how to accomplish this. Here is what I did:
changed “Date” and “Year” fields to correspond (ex: Year = 1985; Date = March)
changed the template for bibliography to be: Author. (Year|, Date|). “Title.”…
updated citations and bibliography in Word 2007
The above would have resulted in the following:
Addiscott, T. M., and R. J. Wagenet. (1985, March 1985). “Concepts of solute leaching in soils: A review of modeling approaches.” Journal of Soil Science 36, 411-424.
I then tried a couple other options in the effort to understand what is going on. For example, I changed the template to be “(Date)” and deleted entry in Year field for the article. The result was “(1985, March 1985)”. So I deleted the year from the Date field - mind you, the year is nowhere in the entry. I got “(1985, March 1985)”.
I am confused as to why this is going on. Admittedly I have used only the basics of EndNote and this is my first foray into changing the templates. Any help?
As soon as I finished the above post, I decided to check one other thing. The issue it appears to be a library issue. The reference I was working with in the library that was open (call it LIB1) was #9. The reference noted in Word was #46. After checking, it appears I have the wrong library open :angry: (call the correct one LIB2). There is no telling how long that has been going on. Now the question is how I correct the references? Do I convert to LIB2 and import all entries from LIB1? Is there a way to change libraries associated with a document?
I know from the forum that the long run solution is to go to one library. The concern I have there is the number of entries in the file. I have nearly 400 entries in LIB1 and just over LIB2. I have several other references in other libraries as well. That is a mountain to sort through. Any longterm suggestions?
