I tried searching for my problem, but found no results, so I’m opening a new thread. Sorry if I’m causing any inconvenience.
I use EndNote X5. I have a problem with organizing my Bibliography with Output Styles. According to the instructions I should be using Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) 16th edition, but if I use that specific output style, my references aren’t properly written. They should be as it follows:
- Book, Single author:
Smith, Peter. 1992. Book Title. Place: Publisher.
- Book, two authors:
Smith, Peter in (that’s and in the language I’m using) John Doe. 1992. 1992. Book Title. Place: Publisher.
- Book, three or more authors:
Smith, Peter T., John Doe in Jane Martin, ur. (ur. is an abbreviation for editor) 1985. Book Title. Place: Publisher.
- Chapter in a book:
Smith, Peter. 1999. Chapter Title. V (v means in) Book Title, ur. John Doe in Jane T. Martin, 55–72. Place: Publisher.
- Journal Article, one author:
Smith, Peter. 1993. Article Title. Journal 30 (1–2): 14–25.
- Journal Article, two authors:
Smith, Peter in John Doe. 1968. Article Title. Journal 57 (3): 634–649.
(… I believe you get my drift)
I was browsing through the output styles and haven’t found one that would match exactly. Would it be best if I create my own? Can I even do that? I tried to “pimp” some of the existing ones, but I don’t understand all the little details (like some of the signs in between words that are used - for example: | and different dots).
I know I sound super confusing, but I hope you can help me. Thank you so much for your time & patience :wink:!
