Remove brackets around citation (see example inside)


I have part of a text that should read (e.g. Anderson 2017) . However, Endnote (v.8) is formating this as (e.g. (Anderson 2017)).

How can get rid of the addition brackets around (Anderson 2017)?


you want to put the e.g. into the prefix of the citation itself using endnote tools.  right click in the formated citation and choose edit citation>more and put the text, punctuation and spaces into the prefix box (or any trailing text into the suffix box).  The cited pages box will only work if you have that field in the output file’s citation template as well.  And remove your added (e.g. and closing parenthesis from the text. 

Great, thank you that fixed my issue!
