I’m using EndNote x9. I have created a custom output style (my university uses a bit different rules) and was searching for a way to automatically shorten corporate author name in citation and can’t seem to find one. The problem is as follows.
I have references like this one (usually a website with no author and no creation date or only a corporation name):
Aladin – Website of the ALADIN Consortium. ALADIN and AROME. [URL to the source here] (Accessed 2017-01-08)
I have set the correct way such references appear in bibliography, but encountered problems with citations themselves. Since there is no date, the citation appears like this:
(Aladin – Website of the ALADIN Consortium)
The rule is that citations with missing authors should include up to 3 words of the corporate name (followed by “…” if there are more) and in case of missing creation date, accessed date should be used. Basically, I need it to look like this:
(Aladin – Website of…, 2017-01-08)
Is there a way for me to achieve this using Endnote? Or will I have to enter these manually?
