When inserting references using endnote (x3 with word2007), references are formated (correctly) like this:
Over the last 10 – 15 years, there have been manymodifications to CI design and speech processing, e.g., increased numbers ofphysical electrodes (Filipo et al.,2004),increased stimulation rates (Vandali et al.,2000),virtual channels (Koch et al.,2007),alternate analysis filterbanks (Geurts and Wouters, 2004), etc. These modificationshave provided only modest gains in performance (at best).
However, there are times when I need to format just a single reference in a paper differently, like:
For example, McDermott and McKay (1994)showed that two different modulation rates…
But Endote formats it like this:
For example, (McDermott and McKay, 1994) showed that two different modulation rates…
Similarly, how do I insert a reference formatted like this:
The ratio between the intra- and extra-cochlear electrodegrounds is designated σ (e.g. Litvak et al., 2007).
Can somebody give me some advice on how to handle these?
For both requests: Start by going into the formatted reference and right clicking to select “edit citation” (it may be a different exact name in Word2007) and there you find additional options including omit author name. - then type in what ever you want in front of the (year), like McDermott and McKay (or Smith and colleagues, or Frank and his friends!). If you doubt your typing skills, you could insert the reference twice, unlink the endnote field and delete what you don’t want (the parentheses and year) and then edit the second citation to omit author.
For the insertion of e.g. in front, this is accomplished thru the edit citation, “more” options, where you can insert the e.g.[followed by a space] in the prefix box.
That so much for the help. That gets me 80% of the way there.
My only remaining problem is the actual deleting of the parentheses in the reference. I was able to insert the e.g. successfully. I can remove the date or the authors and type whatever I want. However, when I delete the actual parentheses, word (or is it endnote?) auto formats and puts the parentheses back, even if the rest of the reference is correctly modified.
That seems like an unfortunate hack, but it works. ctrl+shift+F9 works in word 2007. So what I’m doing is typing the authors manually and then inserting the reference and hiding the authors from the reference. This way everything is formatted correctly. I’m amazed that there isn’t a better way to do this, but it does work.
Thanks so much for helping me with this!
