I’m submitting a paper to a journal that requires the use of p and pp as part of the bibiography.
So if I am referencing a single-page item (such as a newspaper article) the whole article has only one page and the reference should therefore contain a single p. like this: p. 23
If the reference is a journal article then it will be multiple pages and the page numbers should look like this: pp. 223-35.
Similarly some journals have multiple issues within one volume. The journal I’m submitting to requires this:
Vol 12 No. 6
Vol 12 Nos. 6/7
How do I get EndNote to correctly output these different labels for pages and volumes depending on the data I’ve entered?
PS I have seen in some of the bibliography listings there is a p.^pp. thing in front of the page number field. I have tried to use that but must be doing it wrong because my actual bibliography reference ends up with “p.^pp” included in the reference. I’ve also tried copying this section of a reference from within the editing screen but I still get the “p.^pp.” in the reference.
So I gather my solution has something to do with p.^pp. but I don’t know how to make it work. Also I don’t know how to deal with No. vs Nos. for issue numbers.
Thanks for any advice.
In the output style, it should have p.^pp. with a “link adjacent” character linking it to the Pages field. The * in the below replaces the Link adjacent symbol and the | surrounding it all ensures that the punctuation and characters do not appear if the Pages field is empty.
I am not sure an equivalent will work for the volume situation though. I haven’t run across a style that requires that.
you can try No.^Nos. and see?
Our posts crossed in the ether. Can you attach your output style to a reply, so we can inspect it?
Thanks, that helped and I have the pages working. I might have to do the No. Nos. manually I think.
It might work if it were volumes 6-7 but possibly not 6/7. Don’t know til you try!
