I am using Endnote X8 with Microsoft Word Professional Plus 2010. I have a question for you:
I am using the style APA 6th, which has "Journal name format: use full journal name" as default. I have not changes this setting. Despite this, some of the journal names in my reference list are shown as abbreviated. For instance, the journal name "Journal of Consulting and Clinical psychology" is shown consistently as "J Consult Clin Psychol". Other names are shown as they should, as full names.
I can't figure out why this happens, or how to fix it. Any suggestions?

out of the box, endnote defaults to pull journal names into the terms list from downloaded records from databases. These are commonly pulled to the wrong "columns" -- I recommend turning off the updating of terms in your preferences, and deleting and starting over with a journal terms list as described in this knowledge base article:
EndNote: Generate full or abbreviated journal names
(in edit, I attached a view of the preferences options, the way I have set them to prevent a new journal from being incorrectly added)
