Is there a way for the in text citation to appear without brackets?


I was wondering if there is a way for the intext citation to appear without brackets. I would like to do this when I want to place the citation inside existening brackets. For example, I may be putting an abbreviation in brackets before the ciation, like this:

automatic teller machine (ATM; Bloggs et al, 2005)

I could always use double brackets (ATM (Bloggs et al, 2005)), but it looks a bit messier. If anyone has any suggestions on how to do this it would be much appreciated.



Why don’t you edit the citation to include “ATM;” as a prefix, so it appears before the actual citation but within the parentheses/brackets? 

Place your cursor on the citation then select “Edit & Manage Citations”. In the pop-up dialog box locate the “prefix” section and type ATM; .then exit the dialog box 

Thank you so much! I actually used to use this feature years ago but had totally forgotten about it. I will do this from now on.



Also, sorry! I meant to accept your reply as the solution but accidently clicked mine instead. I’m not sure how to fix that.
