I am trying to help a library patron who is submitting an article but I’m stumped. They used the style Annals NY Acad Sci for their output style. However, the Author Instructions have periods in the journal abbreviations. So their citations are listed like this:Fitsanakis, V. A., Zhang, N., Anderson, J. G., Erikson, K. M., Avison, M. J., Gore, J. C., and Aschner, M. 2008, Toxicol Sci, 103, 116-124.
But they need them to look like this:Fitsanakis, V. A., Zhang, N., Anderson, J. G., Erikson, K. M., Avison, M. J., Gore, J. C., and Aschner, M. 2008, Toxicol. Sci., 103, 116-124.
The only difference is that there is a period in the journal title abbreviation.
I can think of a few solutions, but I don’t know how to execute them. We could edit the style they are using to add periods in the journal abbreviations. I went into Style Manager and cannot figure out how to do that.
Or we could find a style that matches the author instructions exactly. But with the number of styles in EndNote how do I know whether one of them is the one we need? I’m not going to click through and look at every single style!
The journal they are submitting to doesn’t have a style of its own. Another option: The patron could call the journal or published and ask them which style most authors use.
Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
