Author Name Auto Changes

[ Edited ]
My continued woes with Endnote 20. When citing the "U. S. Preventive Services Task Force" (as the first author for a manuscript), the Endnote add-on for Word changes it to "Force USPST". This also happens with citations. For example, JAMA (which i type in) automatically gets converted to "JAMA : the journal of the American Medical Association". How do i stop Endnote 20 from reformatting these? Thanks, Chris

Re: Author Name Auto Changes

1.  put a comma at the end of the name  (it gets more complicated if the name has commas too)  https://support.clarivate.com/Endnote/s/article/EndNote-Entering-an-institution-or-corporation-as-an... 

 

U. S. Preventive Services Task Force, 

 

2. JAMA conversion is because the Journals Terms list is being auto updated from the database record upload -- check the knowledge base for into on how that works, delete the items in the current journal terms list, turn off auto updating of the terms in preferences, and upload a correctly formated Journal terms list.
