I’m using Endnote X8.0.2 (Bld 10858)
I like to include the DOI in references.
But I’ve been having problems making it say eg [DOI: 10.1136/bmj.j3289]. The problem seems to be that when I put the letters DOI in it interprets them as the field.
To be specific, the Journal output style I’ve been using looks like this (without the little diamonds which don’t seem to appear when I copy into this box):
Author. Title. Journal Year|;Volume|(Issue)|:Pages PMID: Accession Number| DOI: DOI| (URL)|.
Now, according to what I can make out, if you add a ` before the “DOI”, it should treat it as text, not as the field, so I tried using
Author. Title. Journal Year|;Volume|(Issue)|:Pages PMID: Accession Number| `DOI: DOI| (URL)|.
Wierdly, when I did that, and saved it, all of my references then said "DOI: DOI (URL) - both of the following fields were converted to text, rather than fields.
I couldn’t seem to change it back without first adding an unwanted field, saving, reopening to edit again, removing the surplus field, and saving again.
(In a previous version of the template I had the DOI field in square brackets, but I lost these at some point when it saved.)
This all strikes me as extremely wierd, and I don’t suppose it’s supposed to work like this.
What is going on?
