I use in-text citation: (Smith, 1985:12)
Some authors I use regularly and therefore I would like to use a sigle for the work, such as
SN = Smith, Jeff (1985): »Some Title«, Place: MIT Press
How can I archive this?
One option would be to create additional in-text citations but I couldn’t manage to add another template apart from the two templates provided by endnote (1 = Citation, 2 = Citation - Author (Year))
Next I tried to modify the »Citation - Author (Year) style to suit my needs which didn’t work.
Another option would be to enter the Sigle for example as a Short Title field and then modify the in-text citation to show
(SN:12) if there is a Short Title and
(Smith, 1985: 12) if there the Short Title field is empty
Unfortunately I couldn’t find any »if then« clause in endnote (which really is a shame. I could use if then clauses all the time creating more sophisticated output styles)
As MOST scientific papers use sigles together with long in-text citations I wonder how they archieve this result. I don’t think that none of those scientists uses endnote. I can’t believe that this function is not included. I guess, I am just to stupid to find out how to do it.
Therefore I am asking you geniuses out there:
How is it possible to use sigles with endnote (without to much fuss)???
And: Is it possible to create my own index of sigles automatically?
