Hello Endnote community,
I recently sorted some output styles based on the format for Journal Articles, and renamed them such that I can find similar style template fast. In the following messages, I will attach these style files to share with you. They are all originally from Endnote website, or came with Endnote.
The followings are file naming rules I came up with.
- File names start with either SG, GS, or SGGS, which indicates how author is formatted.
SG1: Surname-Given name order, Initial with periods, like Smith A.
SG2: Surname-Given name order, Initial without periods, like Smith A
GS1: Given name-Surname order, Initial with periods, like A. Smith
GS2: Given name-Surname order, Initial without periods, like A Smith
SGGS: SG for the first author, GS for the following authors, like Smith A, J Doe, W Gates, S Jobs, …
If Ap follows after SG/GS, that means the bibliography sort order is Appearance order. Otherwise, sort order is Author+Year.
Title, Journal, Volume, Number/Issue are abbreviated as follows.
Bold, Italic, colon, or parenthesis are also indicated in the file name, but separators like period, comma, and colon are disregarded. This is because these separators do not fit well in Windows file system, and also because they can be switched/added very easily.
Major journals or organizations that employ the format will be indicated at the end, such as:
SG1 Ap_Ti_Jo Ital_Vol Bold_Page_(Yr) -Nature
SG1_(Yr)_Ti_Jo Ital_Vol(No)_Page -APA 5th
- Journal abbreviation option has all been changed to “Don’t replace”. This is due to a personal reason because my library has both full name (ex. Journal of Chemistry) and abbreviated name (ex. J Chem) in “Full Journal” filed. Using abbreviation option makes very inconsistent output (for my library).
I hope this thread helps some people looking for styles that are not immediately available in Endnote website, but willing to modify from close templates.
