I am using Endnote 8, APA 6th, and Word 2002. I am trying to get Endnote to cite one author plus et al when there are more than 3 authors.
After reading some messages in here, I have checked for the following:
Edit > Output styles > Edit “APA 6th”, then Citations/Author Lists, and it is currently ticked for:
“abbreviated author list - first appearance: if 6 or more authors, list the first 1 and abbreviate with et al in italics”
“abbreviated author list - subsequent appearance: if 3 or more authors, list the first 1 and abbreviate with et al in italics”
I have also checked settings in Word, Tools > Endnote > Format bibliography, and it is set to “Output style: APA 6th”
Nevertheless, when I try to insert citation into Word document, it comes out like this: (Oldham, 1995)
The full reference is
Oldham, G. R., Cummings, A., Mischel, L.J., Schmidtke, J.M., and Zhou, J. (1995). Listen while you work? Quasi-experimental relations between personal-stereo headset use and employee work response. Journal of Applied Psychology, 80(5), 547-564.
So I want the in-text citation to look more like this: (Oldham et al., 1995)
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
