I am trying to modify my personal style to include a template for “book chapters”, as opposed to “Book section,” which is in the program. I would like to use this template for referencing individual chapters of authored books (not edited collections). I want to use such entries in course outlines. The problem with the book section template is that it always inserts an editor.
Thus, I would like an entry to look like this (this is a chapter of the book in question):
Bercuson, David Jay, Robert Bothwell, and J. L. Granatstein. 1984. “Canadian and Other Useless Studies.” In The great brain robbery : Canada’s universities on the road to ruin. Toronto: McClelland and Stewart, pp. 130-46.
I did this by modifying the “Generic” style, though I am not sure if this is advisable…but it allows me to achieve look I want - except for one thing. I put the chapter title in the title field, and the book title is in the secondary title. Consequently, I cannot automatically capitalize book titles.
Is there a way to capitalize secondary titles? Or, alternatively, is there an easier way to set up this kind of template? Can I modify the book section field to not include an editor if there is not one?
