Hi. I’m trying to use a reference of a government report. The suggested citing was:" U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. National Call to Action to Promote Oral Health. Rockville, MD: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. NIH Publication No. 03-5303, Spring 2003." I tried to create new reference, by entering the different parts into the relevant fields, in either “report” or “government document” reference types. However, the final reference keeps looking funny, and unreadable, i.e " Services, U.S.D.o.H.a.H., National Call to Action to Promote Oral Health. 2003, National Institutes of Health: Rockville, MD." Any suggestions? (except waiting to the final submission and bypass endnote)
- Add a comma in the author field to differentiate the name of an organization from the name of a person. So the entry would appear as: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ,
- Check the output style’s template* to see whether the template’s fields correspond with the Report fields. A mis-match (i.e., missing fields in the output style template) may be responsible for generating odd-looking results.
*Go to the EndNote toolbar, select EDIT, OUTPUT STYLES, EDIT [name of the style you’re using]
My issue is with a government department whcih includes several commas in the title of the departament, so I have the following author:
Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations’
which even with the final comma emerges as
Australian Government Department of Education, E. a. W. R.
double the first (perhaps each) comma in the author in the record. How do you want it cited? – you may need to hide the author and edit citation> more put the exact text you want to appear in the citation itself, in the prefix field.
